PBS "Ancestors"

I’ve not been meaning to neglect this website, but I’m still trying to figure out how I want to lay this thing out.  Too much thinking; I should just post.  Anyway, I hope to be posting more lineage in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I was browsing the site for the PBS documentary entitled “Ancestors“.  I know it aired a while back but I never saw it when it was shown.  It looks good and has all kinds of links, articles, videos, and examples of others’ finds.  Enjoy.


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.
