M. Henry Staunton

Died: 10 Mar 1915


The death of Henry Staunton, who died yesterday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. H.R. Clark, at No. 20 Fisk Street, with infirmities of old age, will come as a great shock to his many friends of Sharon and vicinity.

Mr. Staunton was in his 84th year and was one of the oldest druggists of Western Pennsylvania, being a druggist here sixty years ago. He was a member of the Pharmaceutical Association of Philadelphia and a member of the Episcopal Church.

He was married on March 12th, 1854, to Teressa A. DeForeest of this city, who died several years ago.

Mr. Staunton is survived by three daughters, Mrs. R.M. Davids and Mrs. Ernest Thompson of Delta, Colo., and Mrs. H.R. Clarke of this city, and one son, D.F. Staunton of Los Angeles, Cal.

The funeral will be held from the residence at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Interment in Oakwood Cemetery.

[Note: this has three daughters listed, I believe Mrs. Ernest Thompson was an ex-daughter-in-law, having been married to Isaac.]
