I am looking for anyone who knows anything about Annie Stanton. I have a Souvenir brochure from Schol District No. 3, Ligel Top, Huron County, Michigan, for 1897-1898. In this souvenir, there is a listing of a CLARE STANTON and a RUSSELL STANTON who were first graders; NELLY STANTON who was a third grader; ANNIE STANTON who was a fourth grader; FLORENCE STANTON and CHARLEY STANTON who were fifth graders, and LENA STANTON who was an eighth grader.
ANNIE STANTON was my paternal grandmother. I do not know when she was born, but she died on February 14, 1967. She was married to a GUSTAV SEMRAU. He died on December 25, 1965. They had three children, Gustav (Bud), Helen, and Stanton Arthur Semrau (my father). My dad was the baby of the family and he was born on April 23, 1920. He died on August 30, 1991.
I do not know how or if all of the STANTONs listed are related or not. They could be brothers and sisters or cousins, or maybe not related at all.
My dad always told me he was related to Irwin McMasters Stanton and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. I don't know if he was "pulling my leg" or not, but I am very interested in finding out any information anyone has.
Huron County is located in the tip of the thumb in the State of Michigan, and include the cities/towns/townships of Ubley and Brown City. Dad also told me that his mother's grandparents were buried in Ubley, but I have not been able to find them. I don't even know their first names. My uncle Bud died in the 1980s and after grandma Annie died in 1967, all contact was lost with my aunt Helen. I don't even know her married name.
I know it's like looking for a needle in a haystack, but if anyone has any information whatsoever, I would really appreciate it. Please e-mail me if you have any information or post it on the STANTON family message board.
