Rachel Stanton (1833/34 - 1901)
Death of Mrs. Stanton
After many weeks of weary suffering the angel of death called at a home
on Seventh street and brought peace and rest to another mother.
Mrs. Ralph Stanton [sic
- John H. Stanton], aged 67, passed away
May 29, 1901, at 1:30 p.m., after being confined to her bed for nearly
six months. The busy life of another woman who had lived for her children
was closed in the final sleep, and once more the saddest of all messages,
“Mother is dead.” was whispered among the family.
Mrs. Stanton had lived in Franklin and its vicinity all her life, having
been born in Poasttown in 1834. She was first married to John
Craig, and to this union three daughters, still living, were
born. They are Mrs. H. P. Lane, Miss Harriet
Craig and Mrs. Daniel Clark, of Oklahoma.
After Mr. Craig’s death she was united in marriage to John
Stanton, to whom the sympathy of the community goes out
in this loneliness which will shadow his remaining years. To Mr. and Mrs.
Stanton were born three daughters and two sons, all of whom reside in
Franklin and are Mrs. Wm. Squires, Mrs. Carl
Blood, and Miss Bertha Stanton. The two sons,
Edward and Clinton are well known as
hard-working and industrious boys.
The funeral was held last Friday afternoon from the Christian Church and
was conducted by Rev, Austin and Rev. Dawson. Burial in Woodhill.
