Query: Nathan Stanley/Phebe Hollingsworth, Hendricks-Switzerland Counties

            I am looking for information about my 3rd great-grandfather Nathan Stanley, born 9 Aug 1806, Guilford County, NC.  He was a Quaker and married 28 Oct 1824, Phebe Hollingsworth at Dover Monthly Meeting in Guilford County, NC.   They moved from Guilford County to Plainfield, Hendricks County, Indiana between 1850 and 1860 censuses. 
            It appears he was in Lawrence, KS in 1877. but returned by 1880 census to Craig, Switzerland County, Indiana.   I have a date of death of 1886, but no source citation.  For Phebe I have 2 different dates of death, 1899 and 1895.  One source says she was buried at Six Mile Cemetery, Hatfield, Arkansas.  Again, no source citation information given or explanation for why she was in Arkansas. 
            I have their children listed from census records and Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy as: Nancy C. (1825),  Sarah (1826-1828), William P. (1828-1865), Sarah J. (1830), Isaac H. C. (1832-1927), Cyrus K.(1835), Gulielma E.(1837-1866), Eliza Ann (1840-1841), and ELiza Jane (1845).
            I would like to correspond with others working on this line and find the correct death information for Nathan and Phebe, and why they went to Kansas and returned.  We have done Family Finder DNA testing on two descendants, 3rd great-grandson of Nathan and Phebe: Stanley Moore results at FTDNA and; and 4th great-grandson: J A Hodges results at 23andme and
