Burton Stanley

I do not know if there was any sheet music for this performer,
but he was very active in the 1870s, across the country

from This Site:

In May 1875, the Chicago Tribune described Stanley as "a male soprano" and
"the greatest of all the female impersonators." Little is known of Stanley's life.

In 1875 he was with Haverly's Minstrels; September 2, 1879, he joined a dramatic
organization in "Larks," and a few months later was traveling with Stanley's
Juvenile Company. August 24, 1881, he opened with Brooks, Dickson and
Clapham's Minstrels; the tour was a brief one and in November following,
Mr. Stanley joined Leavitt's Minstrels. His next important engagement was
with Emerson's Minstrels in San Francisco; here he met Gus Pixley, later
forming an alliance, playing the variety houses for several seasons. His last
show in Chicago was at the Olympic Theatre in November 1879.

Edward Stewart, or Stuart
aka Everett

“Stuart, the Male Patti”

1899

"'Mid the Green Fields of Virginia" from 1899, is by Joseph Clauder and Charles Harris. The cover features
“Stuart, the Male Patti” next to a photo of a man tilling fields with a team of oxen. Edward Stewart,
a female impersonator, had previously starred in the 1898 Seattle Theater’s production of “1492”.
