Wednesday, January 16, 1833   John Stanton

John Stanton, president of the John Stanton Brewery of Troy, New York, was born in Cork, Ireland. At age 13 he emigrated to America with his parents during the Irish Potato Famine. After graduating from the Christian Brothers Academy he went in to the grocery business with his brothers Edward and Martin. Gradually John branched out in to brewing beer. When the opportunity arose to purchase a half stake in Troy's most successful brewery, A. B. & Co. he took it. Stanton and his partner saloonkeeper James Daley ran the brewery for the next fifteen years. In 1880 Stanton took full control of the brewery and renamed it the John Stanton Brewing Co. John Stanton died on April 14, 1917 at the ripe old age of 86 years.
