Father of actress Barbara Stanwyck. He abandoned the family after Barbara's mother was killed in an accident in 1911. He joined a work crew going to dig the Panama Canal, and the family never heard from him again. Records show that he was returning to New York on the S.S. Advance when he died and was buried at sea.
