From Ken Webb on 1/19/06 "1827-1903. these two dates span the length of a human life that has just left the shores of time for an eternal dwelling place. Mr. Stannard accepted the "Nazarene" as his master and followed his command in baptism in his youth, becoming a member of the Church of Christ, which faith he kept to his death. He was a kind and affectionate husband and father, a loyal, upright citizen, a kind and obliging neighbor, and an honest man. For more than a quarter of a century he was a reader of Horace Greeley's editorials in the New York Tribune, and was one of the best informed men on national politics in the county. For many years he taught school in winter and worked his farm in the summer. He was a quiet unobtrusive man, but a man who was always on the side of morality and good government, for the church and the home, and against all that was low and degrading. All the children are married save the eldest son, Carlon, who has been his father's mainstay during his declining years. Mr. Stannard had been in poor health for some years; he was always a slight, delicate man, more of a literary man the most of us. He did not accumulate a fortune, but who will say that his life was not more successful than that of many multi-millionaires? Success is measured by kindly deeds, moral worth and Christian living. He died; his good deeds live after him.
