Stanton, Albert C., p. o. Georgetown. - William A. Stantoia's genealogy of the Stanton family in America, to
which we are indebted for the following particulars, shows Albert C. Stanton to be a descendant, in the eighth
generation, of Thomas Stanton, the emigrant ancestor, who came to this conntry in 1635 on the merchantman Bonaventura,
being then twenty years of age. He first located in Virginia, but the records show that in 1636 he was serving
as a magistrate in Boston. He served through the Pequot War, acting as an Indian interpreter. He married Ann, eldest
daughter of Dr. Thomas and Dorothy Lord. The exact date is not known, but it was between the years 1638 and 1639.
They had ten children, one of whom was Capt. John, the subject's lineal ancestor. He was born in Hartford, Conn.,
in 1641, and married Hannah Thompson in 1664. February 18, 1675, he was commissioned captain of one of the four
Connecticut regiments in King Philip's War. There were six children born of this union: Joseph, son of Capt. John,
was born June 22. 1668, married Margaret, daughter of Nathaniel and Hannah (Denison) Chesebro. They had nine children.
Lieut. Joseph Stanton, seventh child, was born May 1, 1712, married Ann Wheeler of Stonington, Conn., November
6, 1735, and died March 14, 1773. Their issue was eleven children. Joseph, born May 31. 1739, married Hannah Chesebro,
April 22, 1767, and died in 1832. Amos, son of Joseph, was born in Groton, Conn., June 10, 1773, married Sabra
Palmer of Edmeston, N. Y., December 13, 1795. Amos C., father of the subject, was born in Otseljc, N. Y., May 7,
1798. He married and by his first wife had children, Samuel and Sally. He married second, Azubah Duncan in February,
1818. To this union were born two children: Harrison M., and Albert C., the latter being born in Otselic, July
30, 1835. He was educated in the district schools and when he was twelve years old his father died and he with
his mother removed to Georgetown. He was thrown on his own resources and served an apprenticeship at the carpenter's
trade, which he afterward followed until 1867, when he retired from active work. On January 29, 1853, he married
Susan Brown of Georgetown. She was born March 30, 1837, a daughter of John and Emily (Hawks) Brown. They have two
children: Mary E. (who married Harvey E. Priest), and died November 3, 1884, and Minna B. (now Mrs. Charles E.
Thompson). Mr. Stanton is a prominent member of Cautious Lodge No. 726, A. F. & A. M. He has a pleasant home
in the village of Georgetown. He has been a most successful business man and has accumulated a handsome competency
wholly by his own energy and industry, and enjoys the confidence and esteem of all those who know him and especially
those who have had business dealings with him. Politically he supports the principles of the Republican party.
He has held the office of justice of the peace for eighteen years and town clerk for ten years. Mr. Stanton has
been faithful to every trust confided to his care, and the citizens recognize in him one to whom they may safely
confide the highest public interests.
