Daniel H. Stanton, born at Strafford, N. H., in November, 1830, came in 1846 to Bellmont, where his father had
preceded him. He learned the printer's trade in Malone, and followed it until he entered the army as a member of
the 98th regiment in 1861. He became adjutant, was severely wounded, and made a fine military record. After the
war he was appointed deputy and then assessor of internal revenue taxes, and took up the study of surveying, in
which profession he attained to a very high standing. He was county treasurer for six years from 1876, and also
served Malone as supervisor. During his later years Mr. Stanton was probably the best authority in the county in
regard to local military records, as he was also a mine of information concerning most county, town and village
affairs and history. To exceptional natural abilities he added a remarkably retentive memory, and was a notably
interesting companion and useful citizen. He died June 5, 1897.
