In an old Missouri newsletter, I found this Stone family in SullivanCounty, Missouri thru the Will of William Stone...
Sullivan Co. Will Bk. A, p. 7 - WILLIAM STONE. 11 . . .
to my son, John Stone; to my daughter, Elizabeth Hamilton, the wife ofR.P. Hamilton; to my daughter Dicy I. McCarney, wife of Wm. McCarney; tomy daughter, Mary C. Reynolds, wife of Noah Reynolds; to my son, StephenI. Stone, to my son, Martin G. Stone, to my son, Harvey G. Stone, toFrances Stone, she being the wife of William Stone. . . to
The Will was dated May 3, 1850 and recorded April 3, 1853. There wereonly seven children listed in the Will .. there was no Lewis. I have onlysketchy Information on this family .. they seem to have scattered allover .. some may have gone back to Virginia and West Virginia. Mary wentto Kentucky; Elizabeth (Hamilton) and Dicy (McCarney) .. I was never ableto find them for sure anywhere .. the sons mostly remained in SullivanCo., but their children left.
