a. Note:   d it is Mar 1835. Jerry provided most of the following information DANIEL STOCKTON of Stockton's Valley died by March of 1835, not on 15 Sep 1838 There are three documents that show that Daniel Stockton of Stockton's Valley, Clinton County, Kentucky, died before the 1838 date of death commonly shown for him. The 1838 date of death for Daniel is from a 1878 pension application by his widow Rebecca Stockton. In the pension application she stated that she was 78 years old. Due to the fact that Rebecca Stockton was 78 years old at the time of the pension application it is seems reasonable that she might have made a mistake, or maybe she gave the date of 15 Sep 1833 and it has been misread as 1838. Daniel Stockton, a son of "Smith Creek" John Stockton, married Rebecca Smith on 12 June 1820 in Stockton's Valley. Their marriage was performed by Rev. Isaac Denton of the Clear Fork Baptist Church. Daniel was a grandson of Thomas Stockton Sr, one of the Charter Members of the Clear Fork Baptist Church. Daniel and Rebecca (nee Smith) Stockton were the parents of: 1. Hiram Carl Stockton, born 20 May 1821 2. Jane Stockton, born about 1823 3. Lemuel Leroy Stockton, born 24 Oct 1824 4. Andrew J. Stockton, born about 1826 5. Mary Ann Stockton, born about 1827 6. James Paul Stockton, born about 1828 7. Rebecca Margaret Stockton, born about 1831 8. Nancy D. Stockton, born 30 Aug 1833 - - - The first of the three documents that show Daniel Stockton died before 1838 is from the Clear Fork Baptist Church. In January of 1836 Rebecca Stockton was expelled from the Clear Fork Baptist Church for having an illegitimate child. Daniel Stockton must have died by March of 1835 for Rebecca to have an illegitimate child born in January of 1836. Clear Fork Baptist Church, Stockton's Valley, Cumberland (now Clinton) County, Kentucky: "Rebeckah Stockton expelled from membership for having a base born child." - - - The second document is the Clinton County, Kentucky, 1837 Tax List. 1837 Clinton County, Kentucky, Tax List: Thomas Stockton Wilson or William Stockton Jesse Stockton Sr. Jesse Stockton Jr. John Stockton Samuel Stockton Rebecca Stockton - Rebecca is the widow of Daniel Stockton. He is not shown on this 1837 tax list. Thomas, Gap Creek Thomas Stockton - - - The third document is a deed from the heirs of Daniel Stockton. In 1856 the heirs of Daniel Stockton signed a deed to Mary Ann Craig. This deed was destroyed during the Civil War, however, it was later recreated and signed by five of the surviving heirs of Daniel Stockton. The surviving heirs of Daniel Stockton who signed this recreated deed were: Hiram Stockton - born about 1821 Lemuel L. Stockton - born in 1824 Andrew J. Stockton - born about 1826 Margaret (nee Stockton) Braswell - born about 1831 and Nancy (nee Stockton) Dowell - born in 1833 All of the heirs that signed the deed were children of Daniel Stockton and were born before 1835. None of the children born after 1835 signed this deed as they were not heirs of Daniel Stockton. - - - The following children shown living in Widow Rebecca Stockton's household in 1850 were not the children of Daniel Stockton. ~ Carrol Van Stockton, born 4 Jan 1836 ~ Lorenzo Dow G. Stockton, born about 1839 ~ Phoebe E. Stockton, born about 1841 ~ Commodore P. Stockton, born about 1843 See: 1830 census, Daniel Stockton, 30-40 Daniel died by March 1835 ----- Carrol Van Stockton born 4 Jan 1806 Feb 1806 - Clear Fork Baptist Church records "Rebeckah Stockton expelled from membership for having a base born child." ----- Lorenzo Dow Stockton born about 1839 1840 census, Rebecca Stockton, 40-50 - Rebecca is shown as head of household - Daniel is clearly dead by this time ----- Phoebe E.

The Rebecca Stockton expelled from the Clear Fork Baptist Church was the widow of Daniel Stockton. The other Rebecca Stockton living in Stockton's Valley in 1836 was the wife of Jesse Stockton Sr. They are shown as a married couple on several later census records, and Rebecca, the wife of Jesse Stockton Sr, would have been about 54 years old in 1836. The 1850 census shows Jesse and Rebecca Stockton, both 68 years old, with no child born about 1836. Census records show Rebecca Stockton, widow of Daniel Stockton, with several children born after Daniel is known to have died.
