Stanton60In 1952, Claude Stanton was overseas in Korea, corresponding back to the United States. Alice Stanton saw a picture of him and “knew she needed to snag him up” when he came home

— and she did. They met in person for the first time in early 1950 and were married June 12, 1953 at the St. Philips Episcopal Church on South Lawrence Street in Charles Town. Within

the next year they had two children, a boy and a girl. Claude says, “Alice said we needed to stop right there, because we didn’t want to rush into things.”

On Friday, the couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in Harpers Ferry.Stanton60-b
