United States Army General. He was the highest ranking officer from Hamilton County, Ohio during World War I. Born in Holmes County, Ohio, he later moved to Toledo, Ohio and was commissioned as a Major in the 6th Ohio Infantry during the Spanish-American War in 1898. When the United States entered World War I, he commanded the 73rd Brigade of the 37th U.S. Division was also decorated for his service in Belgium with the American Expeditionary Forces. When the war was over, Stanbery was assigned to Alcencon, France to command the Post Armistice Training Department, while serving under Major General Charles S. Farnsworth. When he returned to America, he purchased an estate in Mount Washington, Ohio and operated a large lumber company as its president. He died in 1931, one week before he would have been 60 years old. In 1940, Stanbery park was dedicated and named in his honor. The park is located in Mount Washington on the grounds of his residence. A World War I memorial was moved to the park after it opened.
