Although the names you gave are not specifically listed - there are two cemeteries which have a number of "Stone" families in Nash County. Forest Hill Cemetery located nortwest side of N. First Street in Nashville, NC and Hollywood Cemetery located about 0.5 miles south of Middlesex on Highway 231. (Cemeteries #28 and #32 in "Cemeteries of Nash County North Carolina Volune I" Edited by Timothy W. Rackley.

I did check other books on Nash County that I have:

In "By Faith and Heritage Are We Joined, A compilation of Nash County Historical Notes" page 183 notes:
In the Raleigh Star for May and November, 1820 and the Raleigh Register for May 1824 are found announcements of the Hilliardston Academy. William Burt was secretary at that time and MR. STONE, tutor. There were two terms--the first from January to the second week in June, and the second from the last week of June to the middle of December..."

In "The Connector" (A newsletter of the Tar River Connections Genealogical Society) I found two references for a John Stone:

Volume 1 Issue 3 Page 11
In the article "Isle of Wight, VA Home of Many Tar River Ancestors" John Stone is listed as an early (before 1750) Isle of Wight/Surry County person who had migrated to NC.

Volume 6 Issue 2 Page 19
In the article of Samuel Hunt of Long Creek by Timothy Rackley states, "Samuel and Mary Hunt wre witnesses to a deed from Seth Mabry of Franklin Co to Moses Park of same 29 July 1794. The land in this deed adjoined Nathaniel Jarratt, Jonathan Hunt, JOHN STONE, and Joseph Smith."

Other resources I looked revealed no further on the Stone family names you mentioned. I hope the information provided will help you further in your search. Good Luck
