Robert W. Stafford, the manager of the Lambert Lumber Company of Easton, Kan., and a member of the city school board, was born in Franklin, Neb., April 7, 1878, a son of J. C. and Rachel (Murray) Stafford. His parents were born and reared in Tennessee. At an early day J. C. Stafford immigrated to Nebraska and was one of the first white settlers of Franklin county. He took up land there, became active in local politics and was one of the men chosen to locate the seat of justice of the county. In 1886 he left Nebraska and came to Easton, where he still resides. Robert is one of a family of four children, having one brother and two sisters. He was educated in the public schools of Easton and then went to the Stanberry Normal School, Stanberry, Mo., to prepare himself for a teacher. After graduating he returned to Kansas and followed his profession in Leavenworth. Subsequently he was elected principal of the schools at Easton and served in that position five years, when he was offered and accepted a position with the Lambert Lumber Company. He soon became manager and still acts in that capacity. Mr. Stafford has a natural aptitude for business and has become one of the successful and prominent men in the commercial life of his native town. In 1898 Mr. Stafford married Clara Meyer, who was born in Iowa. Four children have been born to this union: Goldie, William, Thelma and Robert. The family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church and Mr. Stafford belongs to the Masonic fraternity, the Modern Brotherhood of America and the Knights of the Maccabees In politics he is a Democrat, and while he has always been too busy to hold office is an ardent supporter of the party.
