Is this possibly the same man? There was a John Stone who had a sister Nancy who married James Murray. They're probably the couple married July 21, 1778 in Bute county. He gave a statement in Murray's pension file and called him his brother-in-law. James and Nancy Murray lived most of their lives in Franklin county NC, as far as I know.
3 John Stone W19403
Sworn to & subscribed in open Court the 14th of September 1832. S/James Murray
John Stone after being duly sworn in open Court on his oath aforesaid saith that after he was discharged from the Service at Purrysburg, in the year, as well as he recollects 1778, he went to the house of James Murray his brother-in-law at Ninety Six in South Carolina who is mentioned in the foregoing declaration, and remained there about 3 months, the whole of which time, the said Murray was engaged in the service of his country under the command of Captain Herd --
indeed that section of Country was so troubled with Tories, that all those engaged in the Service were subject to be called out at any moment [several indecipherable words] for the protection of the Citizens & when this affiant left Ninety Six the said Murray was still in the Service of his Country and I have understood that he remained until General Greene left Ninety Six as stated in his declaration which I have every reason to believe is true. S/ John Stone
Sworn to & subscribed in open court 14th of September 1832
