    OBITUARY.
    Isaac Stanton.
      Isaac Stanton, father of Curtis Stanton, Superintendent of the Board of Water Commissioners, died at his home No. 132 Chambers Street on Saturday afternoon aged about 88 years. Death was due to the infirmities of age.
      Stanton was born in Matteawan [Dutchess County NY] in 1813. He was bound as an apprentice to Thomas Powell in Newburgh as a cabinet maker and he bought his time of him. Afterwards he went to work for Corwin & Halsey, at the corner of Broadway and Grand Street, the old foundry and machine shop. In 1843, Mr. Stanton, Edson H. Clark, and Nicholas Wilson, formed the firm of Stanton, Clark & Co., who built a foundry and machine shop at the foot of South Street on Front, and called it the Highland Furnace. Samuel G. Kimball bought an interest in the business in 1846. The firm was dissolved in 1851, when the lease of the plant expired. Mr. Clark and Mr. Stanton then went into partnership. They made additions to the plant and called it the Highland Iron Works. They afterwards sold out to Walsh, Elliott & Company. Mr. Stanton then went to the South End and built the original Washington Iron Works. When the works were about ready to run, Mr. J. H. Mallory went into partnership with him and the firm was called Stanton & Mallory. Afterwards, Col. Snow with Stanton and Mallory built a shop at Colden and Washington Streets and manufactured car wheels. Then Major Rains entered the firm and it was changed to Stanton, Mallory, Rains & Co. Mr. Stanton and Mr. Mallory then sold out and went back to the north end. They leased the Highland Iron Works and continued business there until the war broke out. They then took the contract for one of the ninety-day gunboats, engines and boilers but the contract ruined Mr. Stanton financially. He then became Superintendent for the old Washington Iron Works. Afterwards he had a small shop at the corner of Front and First Streets.
      Mr. Stanton is survived by his second wife. His first wife was Eliza Buchanan. His sons Curtis and Jack, children of the first wife, Mrs. Jennie Brink and Harvey Stanton, children of the second wife, survive. His second wife was a sister of the first, her name being Margaret Buchanan. Mrs. Stanton is in her 86th year. Mr. Stanton was a member of Dr. McCarrell’s Church. From there he went to what is now Union Church. He then went to the First Presbyterian Church, and finally back to Union. He was a strong churchman and at the time of his death a member of Union Church.
      The funeral will be held on Tuesday afternoon [11 Dec 1900] at 2 o’clock at his daughter’s house.
