This is Baker/Ferrall researcher Jan Swart. I happened to come across your old posting in Genealogy. com for Bedford County, VA with your wanting the will of William Stockton from 1795. I happen to have it so here it is! William's parents were Dan Stockton and Catherine Ferrall and he obviously died young.
Pg. 48 (p. 186)
