Hi, my interest in Ida is her father Edward- he was born near where I live and where my Stanton's are from. He was a twin to Edwin and relatives here called them the Ward and Win twins and said they were related to us. Local papers published articles about them being the oldest living set of twins- They were the sons of Isaac and grandsons of Eli- their father may have been married twice, his one wife Betsey/Betsy was a Bishop. Edward worked for the Whitaker/Whittaker family and for the Beach families prior to going west. My grrgrgrandfather was a few years older than them and he went west in the goldrush but returned to Lewis County to purchase a farm and marry his sweetheart here. Edwin his brother married Margaret and the newsclips about their birthday state they each had 4 children. Edwin in old age is living in Pomona CA with his daughter Grace who married Emery R. Yundt who was a banker there. Please contact me if you can tell me more about Ward and Win! -Believe they had cousins- one was Lafayette Stanton an Adirondack guide and lumberman- he married late in life so I don't believe he had children- his father was also an Eli.
