Many years ago, my father, Stanton Semrau, told me that his mother was related to the Stanton who was Secretary of War in Abraham Lincoln's cabinet. I have just recently discovered a birth certificate for my dad's mother and an interested in finding out if anyone has any information on this part of my family.
My paternal grandmother's info is as follows:
Anna Stanton was born on May 2, 1887, in Sigel Township, County of Huron, Bad Axe, Michigan. Her father was Cory Stanton, born in Canada and her mother was Jane (or Mary Jane) Broomfield, also born in Canada.
If anyone has any information whatsoever on this part of my family, it would be greatly appreciated.
