In Reply to: Lemuel Stone, George Washington Stone, Wm Stone (husband of Sarah Huddleston) by Sheryl Baxter of 11245

I have read your blog and have looked at the names you
have mentioned in it. I am slowly and diligently searching
for documented information concerning various lines of
several of the names you have mentioned but are not sure
of. Your statement about the DNA factor lends great in-
sight about the possible ties of Lemuel Stone and George
Washington Stone of Rusk County, Texas. Over the years I
have pondered, wondered, and spoke many times prematurely
about possible findings to have to back-track and correct
my pass findings. What I do know is this. The Lemuel Stone
that lived in Rusk-Smith Co., Texas and was married to
Sarah Cooper was the son of, William Stone, Sr., and his
wife who is unnown at present. William Stone, Sr. was the
son of Capt. John Stone and Pegee Merritt, born in the
Bute-Halifax district of North Carolina in 1763. William
with two of his brothers, Jonathan and John Stone, who
were older, Jonathan by about nine years and John by three
years, fought in the Revolutionary War with the North
Carolina militias. William married after he returned home
and helped his parents move from Halifax County to Frank-
lin County some 55 five miles from where he was born. In
time William and his wife had for sure two sons. William
Stone, Jr. and Lemuel R. Stone. William Jr. it is believed
moved to South Carolina and shortly after when the land
lotteries began in Georgia for the land taken from the
Cherokee sought land in Georgia. Lemuel R. Stone met
Sally Cooper who was born in South Carolina. They married
in Georgia where all of their children were born. In time
William Sr. moved to Georgia and lived with Lemuel and
Sarah his son and daughter in law. William Stone, Jr. may
have joined them. In time, some twenty years after moving
to Georgia. Lemuel R. Stone, his wife, father, William Sr.
along with most of his children moved on to Rusk-Smith
County, Texas. Those that stayed behind were married and
settled with their families and in-laws.
Now back to William and George Washington Stone. Back in
Franklin and Nash County, North Carolina, the baby brother
of William Stone, Sr. had married and started his family.
This brothers name was Merrit Stone. Merrit married
Karenhappuch "Happy" Stallings Stone. They had a son named
William Stone and a son named, Washington Stone. Washing-
ton Stone would marry and have a son, he named George
Washington Stone. I know that William Stone, son of Mer-
rit Stone, married Anna Boon ,and Penelopy, Williams sis-
ter, married Anna's brother, James Boon. They remained
in the Nash-Franklin area. The point is, this would pretty
much eliminate Merrit Stone's William and Washington Stone
as the ones you mentioned.
There is listed as living in Virginia a George Washington
Stone, Sr. that moved to Tennessee. He had a son that was
born in Tennessee he named George Washington Stone, Jr.,
who came to be a educator and a judge later in life. This
George Washington Stone, Jr. would make his home in Texas.
He is not of the same line as the Stones earlier mentioned
yet there was another George Washington Stone and William
Stone that were found living in the Rusk-Smith area of
Texas. They were grandsons of Lemuel R. Stone and Sarah
Cooper-Stone. Yet a son of Lemuel and Sarah, named William
lived in Smith Co., Texas and died there. This William was
born in January 1821 in Georgia. His wife was known by her
first name, Margaret. William died in Smith Co., Texas on
February 26,1908. William and Margaret had several child-
ren of which one was named William F. Stone brn. February
17th. 1857 in Smith Co.,TX., and died on January 08, 1927
in Smith Co.,TX.,. This William Stone that married Marg-
aret had six children and his sister-in-law with her
children living with him in 1880 in the Overton-Rusk area
of Texas according to the 1880 U.S. Census. Their children
were; 1. William F. Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1857, 23 yrs old;
2. Sabe Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1859, 21 yrs. old;
3. Sallie Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1862, 18 yrs. old:
4. Anne Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1855, 25 yrs. old;
5. Ella Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1867, 03 yrs. old;
6. Rufus Stone. brn. TX. abt. 1879/80, 4 months of age;
Living with William; sister in law; Hermina Kanselar, 39
with her sons Adolphus Kanselar, 22; Joseph Kanselar, 11;
Thomas Kanselar, 2;....
If you think this might be some of your lineage please
feel free to contact me for I have much but nowhere near
a documented finish history of brothers, William, Jr. and
Lemuel R. Stone.
The other family member who also in Nash County, NC.,
had a son named Washington Stone was Elias Stone, son of
Merrit and Happy Stalings-Stone. Merrit was the Uncle of
William Jr., and Lemuel R. Stone of Rusk-Smith County, TX.
Please forgive my sentence structure and spelling. Look
forward hearing from those interested.----Bill....
