Stanton, Edwin Moore
- Existence: 1892-1981
Edwin Moore Stanton was born on September 30, 1892, in Coronado, California. His father, Robert Brewster Stanton, worked as a mining and civil engineer and had surveyed the Grand Canyon for the Denver, Colorado Canyon and Pacific Railroad. Edwin's grandfather, Robert Livingston Stanton, had been president of Miami University in Ohio.
During World War I, Edwin served in the 27th U.S. Division with the British forces in Europe. He must have married and fathered a daughter, Ida, but the only clear evidence in the papers shows his marriage to Ruby Deese on April 18, 1936, in Bunnell, Florida.
During World War II, Edwin worked at the Orlando Air Base. After the war, he worked for the Douglas-Guardian Warehouse Corporation, until ill health forced his early retirement in 1955. He died on April 2, 1981.
