Before Samuel Stone…?

Beyond Samuel Stone, our family doesn’t have a record or any documentation of the Stone ancestoral line, but via some of my internet reseach, I did come across a posted lineage that may be the missing piece of that puzzle.  On the Hamilton County New York Genweb site (part of the USGenWeb Project), and in the ‘Biographies’ section, Marcia Buffett uploaded the fruits of her research on a particular branch of the Stone family she has been researching.  My ancestors, Samuel Stone and Abigail Corey are mentioned in her listing, seen below:

So if this is indeed part of my lineage too, it can bee seen where Eli Thompson Stone gets his first name from (his grandfather).  It would also show that at some point, Samuel Stone’s father, Eli, moved to Northampton, NY from Oakham, Mass., with the remaining ancestors all from Massachusettes.  Samuel Stone may have been born in Mass. or NY–or somewhere else but he did end up in NY.




Samuel Stone 1801-?


I have little information on  Anthony Corey Stone’s father, Samuel Stone.  Samuel Stone was born on August 7, 1801. I have no death date at this point.  Samuel married Abigail Corey (June 7, 1800 – June 30, 1880), on May 19, 1822.  I think Samuel Stone was born and spent his life in the state of New York, most likely in the towns of Northampton and Augusta, but I don’t have solid documentation of this. 

Samuel and Abigail had nine children.  Doris Kistler sent me a list of the children and various dates that was in a diary kept by Julia Aurelia Thompson (who married Anthony Corey Stone).  The children are as follows:

William Stone:  b. 14 MAY 1823; d. 28 MAR 1825; Married: Hepsibah Sweat.

John W. Stone:  b. 6 MAR 1825; d. ?; Married:  Betsy Palmer.

Joseph Stone:  b. 3 SEP 1827; d. 27 MAR 1865; Married:  Amelia Fellows.

Warner C. Stone:  b. 1 JUL 1830; d. ?; Married:  Susan Allen.

Anthony Corey Stone:  b. 1 JUN 1832; d. 13 DEC 1914; Married:  Julia Aurelia Thompson.

Sarah A. Stone:  b. 22 JUN 1834; d. ?; Married:  Hawley T. Peck, 31 OCT 1854.

Bradley Stone:  b. 12 JUN 1836; d. ?; Married:  Susanna Bobather.

Charles Laton Stone:  b. 8 APR 1839; d. 30 DEC 1863.

Frances G. Stone:  b. 1 OCT 1841; d. ?; Married George C. Baker.

Doris also mentioned that Anthony Corey and his sister, Sarah, were both wed on the same day and stood up for each other, but not in the same church.

The 1880 census also records that Anthony and Julia’s two youngest children, Samuel W. and Frances, are living with the oldest son, Eli T. Here the census record denotes that Julia is the head of the household.  Anthony’s occupation is keeper of a tin store.  Again, I don’t know why the children aren’t living with their parents.  With Grandmother Julia listed as the household head, one could speculate that the couple weren’t able to care for their youngest, but I have no information as to the reason.


Anthony Corey Stone (1832-1914)


(Photo:  Anthony Corey STONE and Julia Aurelia STONE (THOMPSON))

Going back another generation with the STONE family, Eli Thompson STONE’s father was Anthony Corey STONE.  I have very little information about my gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather Anthony.  On the back of the only other photo I have of him, written in script, it says, “He liked to play the horses.”

Anthony Corey Stone was born June 1, 1832 in Benson, Hamilton County, NY.  He    married Julia Aurelia Thompson on October 31, 1854 in Augusta, Oneida County, NY.  Anthony died December 13, 1914 in Syracuse, NY.  He and Julia had three children:  Eli Thompson, Florence, and Samuel Werden.

This last year I was able to obtain two obituary notices via a query on’s Onondaga BB.  Thomas Roux does look-ups on that board and found these for me (thank you, Tom!):

From the Syracuse Post Standard, Monday December 14, 1914, pg. 10, col. 6:

“A. Corey Stone, 82, died at 2:30 o’clock yesterday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Florence C. Howard, No. 1315 East Fayette Street.  He had been ill since September of heart trouble.  Mr. Stone came here from Benson, Hamilton county, 47 ago and had lived in the same house 31 years.  Funeral arrangements have not been completed.”

From the Syracuse Post Standard, Tuesday, December 15, 1914, pg. 7, col.1:

Hold Funeral Today

Services for the Late A.C. Stone to Be Held at 4 O’Clock

The funeral of A. Corey Stone, 82, who died Sunday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Florence C. Howard, No. 1415 East Fayette street, will be held there at 4 o’clock this afternoon.  Rev. Dr. W.W. Dawley will officiate, and F.J. & A.E. Snyder, undertakers, will send the body to Deansboro for burial tomorrow.

Mr. Stone had lived in Syracuse 47 years and at one time was proprietor of the Kingsley House, where the Vinney Building now stands.  At another time he conducted the Fayette Hotel, on the site of the Hendricks Block.  Later he was a traveling salesman for many years for H.A. Moyer.  He was well known as a horseman and went to many of the Grand Circuit races throughout the country.

Besides his daughter, he leaves two sons, Eli T. Stone of De Soto, Missouri, and S. Werden Stone of Flint, Michigan; one brother, Bradley Stone of Marion, Michigan; and two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Peck of Walesville and Mrs. George Baker of Grand Rapids, Michigan.”
