Shadrick Standley Jr. was born in the rural setting of a quaker community called New Garden. The area is now known as Guilford College, about six miles west of Greensboro. The name came from the New Garden Meeting in Chester County, Pennsylvania which was taken from New Garden in County Carlow, Ireland. The quakers moved about the country, the first land was in Maryland, and from there they went into Virginia, North Carolina and even Georgia. His father has brought the famiy from the Cedar Creek Quaker community of Hanover County, Virginia. Researchers of the Quaker records should refer to Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy by Hinshaw for births, deaths, marriages and other details.
