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.
