Joseph Stone was born on August 16th, 1906 in Murray City, Ohio[1] to Martin Falkenstein and Catharine Novak.[2], two German-Polish immigrants from an area in Prussia which is today part of Poznań in Poland.

He married Hazel Antle, a local schoolteacher. Together they had 3 children[3]:

  1. Marilyn Stone, born in 1930
  2. Joseph Stone, born in 1932
  3. William Stone, born in 1934

Throughout his life, Joseph was very active in his local community. He was a member of the American Legion Post 420, the Buckeye Boys State vice president, and at one point was president of the Murray City Eagles Aerie 1044.

Joseph was employed in the area of education for most of his life. He was the Murray City schools superintendent and had also worked as a substitute teacher and in management positions.

In 1963, he finally retired a lifetime of hard work. However, one year later, he suffered a heart attack at his home in Murray City. By the time he arrived at the hospital in Nelsonville, he had passed away.[4]
