Re: The children of Edwin M. Stanton

In Reply to: The children of Edwin M. Stanton by T.D. of 3272

I found a biography of Edwin McMasters Stanton in "The National Cyclopedia of American Biography", however, the story does not mention any family life for this Stanton, it focuses mainly on his political career with President Lincoln. I did, however, find a biography of his son, Edwin Lamson Stanton, in the same set of books, which gave the following lineage:

Robert Stanton m. Avis Almy
son, John Stanton m. Mary Clarke Cranston
son, Henry Stanton m. Lydia Albertson
son, Benjamin Stanton m. Abigail Macy
son, David Stanton m. Lucy Norman
son, Edwin McMasters Stanton m. Mary Lamson
son, Edwin Lamson Stanton m. Matilda Carr
their children: dau, Sophy Carr Stanton
son, Edwin M Stanton

I have some dates for these people; births, marriages, and deaths. They were all taken from "The National Cyclopedia of American Biography", various volumes. I have some other Stantons, also.

Let me know if I can help further.
