Birth: Apr. 13, 1874
Death: Apr. 15, 1912

Victim of the Titanic Sinking. An employee of the Gleason Works, in April 1912 he was sent to Birmingham, England to negotiate sales of Gleason-made machinery to the automobile industry. On booking his return trip home, he was particularly excited not just to be traveling on the maiden voyage of the Titanic, but to be celebrating his 38th birthday aboard the luxury liner. The Titanic of course struck an iceberg and sank the night after his birthday and sadly he was not among the survivors, though his body was recovered and - eventually - returned to his home town for burial. Originally a woman calling herself Lydia Fox, who claimed to be his sister-in-law and acting on behalf of his distraught widow Cora, attempted to claim his body at Halifax, to where it had been removed from the wreck site. However, a telegram was received by authorities from the real Cora, instructing them not to release Stanley's body or effects to the woman. Although they were able to retain the effects, the body was already en route but after further evidence surfaced indicating that "Lydia Fox" was actually perpetrating an insurance scam, authorities quietly removed Stanley's body from the train at a regular stop while "Lydia" continued her journey none the wiser. With the added intervention of Hiram Edgerton, Mayor of Rochester, poor Stanley finally arrived home and his funeral was held on May 6 1912. In addition to Cora, he left behind two young children.
