      Here's yet another Benjamin STONE...my ancestor with this name was b. abt 1733-1740, location unknown.

      He first appears in Orange Co., NC when he bought 100 acres of land from John Whitsett. He also lived in Caswell Co., NC (1777 tax list) and Rockingham Co., NC before moving to Madison Co., KY abt 1788.

      His will was proven Aug. 1795 and mentions wife, Sarah (LEWIS?) Children: Susannah (b. Dec. 1763), Burgess, John Bluford, Rebecca, Mary, Jane, Elizabeth, Daniel, Samuel Addison, Fanny and Dudley (thought to be the youngest.)

      Possible connections to BURGESS, McCONKEY and LEWIS families.

      Has anyone come across this Benjamin STONE? I'd love to find his origins. Family tradition ties him into the Gov. William STONE line, but after scouring MD records, I haven't found a connection. «tab»«tab»
