Our Family Tree
Every Child is an extension of their Parents,
Who in turn are an extension of their parents.
These extensions form roots and grow into magnificent trees.
Trees whose branches spread throughout the pages of history.
These branches intertwine with those of other trees,
Fusing together kinship's that show that we are all of one Tree.

Navy Brat; have lived in KY,VA,NY,CT,SC,NH,CA,HI,FL. Went to 23 different schools because of moving so much, including colleges. Married 3 times, with 3 kids from 2nd marriage. Longest Employment was Lexington, Ky Police Department Central Records.


The information in the profiles of my family tree have been transcribed from many sources; accuracy is as close as I can get derived from the availability of information some of which is only by word of mouth. My thanks to all of those interested in the Stone Family and documenting their information on Public Forums. I have tried not only to get dates and locations of ancestors but also any information on how they lived and during what historical times they lived. To me this makes them more real and personal, after all if it was not for each of them I would not be here today. Unfortunately Many ancient historians do not place much importance to the female role (side) when it comes to genealogy and we lose a lot of valuable family information of the unknown wives and mothers of our ancestry. Even when you do learn their names, an often time they were not the only wife and sometimes makes it difficult to decide which one is the mother to the children of record? I found through searching that one family tree will use one wife as the mother and another family tree will use another wife. I have tried to go by what seems more authentic by comparing to as many sources as possible. Hence it may be noted that the possible name of the mother may be omitted when I cannot find enough evidence to substantiate it. I have not listed all the children to each ancestor, most times only the ones of my direct lineage, since many of my family records are listed as direct linage only. I have tried to add and document as many of the additional family I can come accross.

Please also note that when I find information from family records there is not always a substantiated source that these can be referenced to and they may be some errors in the information. I welcome all new information that can be added to these profiles and any sources shared would be appreciated.

Thank You, Cheryl Stone Caudill

  • [Work in Progress for Stone Tree's:

   By E. A. Stone, D. D. Among the early settlers of Virginia there were several of the name of Stone. The majority of those who came during the first one hundred and fifty years is given here, with some others. In point of time and prominence, there was first ( 1 ) Captain William Stone, (Stone-70) who settled in Accomacke Co., in 1629 or earlier. He brought with him four brothers, Andrew, John, Matthew and Richard. None of these left any children. Later, about 1648, William Stone moved to Maryland and was appointed Governor. Two of the sons of William Stone, viz. Thomas Stone and John Stone left children. The descendants of these are traced through Charles Co., Maryland. Relationship Trail; This trail tells us that William is the ninth great grandfather of Cheryl.

1. Cheryl is the daughter of [private father]

2. [Private] is the son of Charles S. Stone

3. Charles is the son of Emma L. Morton

4. Emma is the daughter of Mary J. Stone

5. Mary is the daughter of Berry Stone

6. Berry is the son of Thomas Stone

7. Thomas is the son of Thomas Stone

8. Thomas is the son of Thomas Stone

9. Thomas is the son of Thomas Stone

10. Thomas is the son of John Stone

11. John is the son of William Stone-70

Another ( 2 ) William Stone immigrated to Va. in 1662-3, and received from Sir Wm. Berkeley a grant of 750 acres in New Kent Co. for transporting 15 persons into the colony. His wife was Mary; their descendants are quite numerous.

There was a ( 3 ) James Stone, merchant of London, who with others, received 8000 acres in Charles City county, granted by Sir John Harvey, and another grant from Sir Wm. Berkeley of 564 acres in York county. The first grant was made in 1636, and the second in 1647. That he removed to Virginia is uncertain.

In York Co. there is on record a will of another ( 4 ) William Stone, dated Nov. 25, 1729, and probated the following February. His wife's name was Sarah. He names four children, and from the records it appears they, in part at least, moved into Lunenburgh Co. Their descendants are quite numerous.

There was a ( 5 ) Theophilus Stone also in York Co. in 1646, but there is very little known of his history later.

In "old" Rappahannock another group of Stones are found. Oct. 20, 1672, ( 6 ) William Stone bought of Giles Cale 200 acres of land. This is the earliest record of him in this country. Later he purchased various other tracts of land, until he owned over one thousand acres. His will is dated 1704. He left a wife Sarah and five living children; one daughter had died earlier. He died about 1710-11 as appears from the court records. The widow lived about twenty years after William Stone's death.

There was living in the same county ( 7 ) Col. John Stone, who was prominent in its affairs from 1672 until about 1691-2. He married Sarah Walker, widow of John Walker, and when he died left only one child, a daughter.

The records show that there was living in the same county a ( 8 ) Francis Stone, wife Elizabeth, who also were prominent from 1685 onward. Francis Stone received a grant of land in 1711 from Lady Fairfax, in Stafford County. Other grants were made later by the same to Francis Stone.

There is one mention made of ( 9 ) David Stone associated with Francis Stone in 1685, but no other record has so far been found of him. It would seem that these four Stones, William, John, Francis and David were possibly related, most probably brothers. There were grants of land as late as 1727, and again in 1739 made to Francis Stone, one in Stafford Co., the other in Prince William Co. It is possible that this later Francis Stone was a son of Francis Stone who received the grants made earlier.

There was a ( 10 ) Humphrey Stone who received in New Norfolk Co. a grant of 200 acres from Sir John Harvey in 1637; there is little else known of him.

There was to a ( 11 ) John Stone a grant of land made in Henrico Co. in 1718 and another in King and Queen Co. in 1725.

( 12 ) Thomas Stone, of Brunswick Co., "imported himself in the year 1740". He was prominent in the affairs and a vestry man in St. Andrews Parish. His will is dated April 16, 1795, and proven ten days later.

His son ( 13 ) Richard Stone received in 1746 a grant of 400 acres from William Gooch.

There is a record of the marriage of ( 14 ) John Stone and Nancy O'Bissell dated Nov. 10, 1687, in Middlesex Parish.

( 15 ) Eusebius Stone, of Caroline County, received from William Gooch, 400 acres in Orange County in 1735.

( 16 ) Jeremiah Stone was transported into James City county Aug. 11, 1637.

There was a ( 17 ) John Stone (who) came to Virginia as early as 1621 and of George Sandys 100 acres in Archers Hope.

There was a ( 18 ) Thomas Stone in Westmoreland Co., Va., made a will in 1718, in which he annuls all previous wills. This will was probated in a short time. In it no mention or reference to a wife or children, no heirs designated.

There was however another ( 19 ) Thomas Stone whose wife was Jemima Sturman, whose name appears in records from and after 1724. This Thomas Stone separated from his wife, and their son

( 20 ) Joseph Stone was given to the guardianship of his uncle William Sturman. The probability is that this second Thomas Stone was the son of the Thomas whose will was made in 1718, and a comparison of the records makes it probable that he came to America in 1676, with his brother William, who settled in St. Mary's Co., Md., while Thomas came over to Westmoreland Co., Va. Everything in the records show that the two family lines were related. There were, about 1740 to 1750, several of Gov. William Stone's descendants who left Charles Co., Md., and emigrated to Stafford Co., Va.; most of them settling in that portion of the county which later became Prince William Co. They were ( 21 ) Barton Stone, ( 22 ) Samuel Stone, Thomas Stone, ( 24 ) William Stone, and ( 25 ) Benjamin Stone, all related closely and all descendants of the Provincial Governor. Some of the descendants still live in that region.

Other Stone families found their origin in the counties farther north, some of them, if not all, being of German descent, whose names were Anglicized after coming to America. There are probably others, but this list shows the complications which necessarily arise in tracing out the various families and their descendants.     Joshua Stone, and the Search for Wilmoth Bryan's Ancestry Joshua Stone was a Captain in the Southern Continental Army (1780), Justice of the Peace for Pittsylvania County, VA in 1783, as well as Sheriff for the same county in 1796. Many genealogies show his wife's surname as Bryant, yet the only two records found by this author show the surname as Bryan. Her ancestry remains a mystery, although the following record strongly indicates a probable connection with Fauntleroy Bryan, mentioned alongside Joshua Stone, below. The author has so far been unable to find any further information about this individual, but there are other earlier Bryan families in this same area, so further research will be necessary.

Another possible clue may be found from the fact that Fauntleroy Moore is shown in Cavaliers and Pioneers with a land grant in Farnham Parish, Richmond County, for transporting, among others, one Henry Bryan.

Hi again! The only profile in the District of Kentucky category was Kester-478, and he was born 1791... text says in District of Kentucky (Nelson County). The Nelson County, Virginia that became Nelson County, Kentucky in 1791/2 was formed 1784/5 from Jefferson County, Virginia. It does not have a category. Let me know if you think it should.

Cheers, Liz

Hi! I was working on the Kentucky County category for the Virginia project. There's also a "District of Kentucky" category. It's not appropriate for Virginia, but looking at the timeline on Project:Kentucky, I was wondering if it would be appropriate for the Kentucky project?

See District of Kentucky.

Thank you for the information about including sources. I have sources for only about 18,000 people in my well researched tree, The other 6500 are a bit more difficult to find accurate records for. I do make an effort to upload sources. But, since I have deformed hands, I am very slow and I have to take breaks.

Thank you for the info on the Safety. I do have that info, The Complete book of Migrants 1607-1660, in fact there were 24 Saunders/Sanders that migrated to America before 1660.

Alas, we are unable to trace any particular line back to any particular individual
