Note: Per Jerry Stockton: The book, SANTO: THE HUB, 1980 ? “Joanna Ince was the daughter of James Madison Ince and Rebecca Jane Calvert Ince, daughter of Jonathan Calvert, both early settlers in Tennessee. James Madison Ince’s grandparents were also in the Colonies in 1780 to 1784. His grandmother, Sarah Stocton, was the daughter of Daniel Stocton who lead some settlers into Kentucky where Stocton Valley was named for him.”
The above book, SANTO: THE HUB, seems to be the source of the theory that Daniel Stockton was the father of Sarah (nee Stockton) Ince. There are no deed records, census records, court records, Bible records, pension records, cemetery records or wills that mention this Daniel Stockton. The father of Sarah (nee Stockton) Ince appears to be John 5 (Smith Creek John 4, Thomas 3 Sr, Richard 2, Davis 1) Stockton, who was mentioned as a son of Smith Creek John 4 Stockton in the 1825 Cumberland County, Kentucky deed. Deed Book F, p. 34 “30 th day of May . . . one thousand eight hundred and twenty five . . . John Christian, John Stockton, Rachel Jones of the County of Overton and State of Tennessee . . . all heirs of John Stockton deceased . . . 200 acres . . . in Cumberland County . . . on Smiths Creek”. The plat map of Ill Will Creek, Cumberland County, Kentucky, shows John Stockton living next to Wyatt Daniel and John Christian.
Sarah Stockton, who married William McCammet Ince, was born in Stockton’s Valley about 1809. It appears that she was one of the older Stockton children in Overton County, Tennessee. If her father was 29 years old when Sarah was born he would only have been about 15 years old when Stockton’s Valley was settled in 1795. It’s hard to believe that a 15 year old boy led the seasoned settler, Thomas 3 Stockton, Sr., who was about 55, into Kentucky and then had the entire valley named after him.
