      John B. Stone - Samantha Bailey marriage bond posted 1 Mar 1830 by John B. Stone and Merlin "Murlin" Shackleford for 50 Lbs. Marriage license issued to John B. Stone and Samentha (sic) Bailey. They were married 10 Mar 1830 by Jacob Locke, O.M., Mt Tabor Church (Baptist). The marriage took place near Glasgow, Barren Co. A consent for the marriage of Samantha Bailey was written on a torn scrap of brownish paper to William Logan (County Clerk?) and signed by Julius Bailey. This would give some indication of Samantha's age, since a consent was not required unless the bride was underage (age 18). [courtesy Edward Gotts]

  • Notes 
    • John's father, Henry, died in December 1829 and his will was probated in January 1830. The division of the estate includes "the heirs of John Stone." Apparently John has died between the time the will was written in 1822 and his father's death and probate of the estate in January 1830.
      ===============
      In the distribution of the estate of Edward Stone, John's uncle, recorded 9 Apr 1832 in Bourbon Deeds V: 119-123, the heirs of John Stone (decd) are named.

      BUT I don't think John died. I think he left Albemarle, VA after he married Elizabeth Wood and moved to Bourbon Co., KY where his uncles Edward, John and Kinzea were living. After Elizabeth died, he moved to Barren Co., KY where he married Samantha Bailey in 1830. About 1838/1839 he moved to Boone Co., MO. Several of his half-brothers and sisters had already relocated there: Isaac, Nancy Stone Dolan, Rachel Stone Rippeto, Thomas, Henry, Elizabeth Stone GIbson.
      =====================

      John was born about 1790 based on the age given on the 1830 census as between 30-40, on the 1840 census as between 50 and 60. These ages would suggest he was born 1790/1791. The 1850 census gives his age as 49, but the age given for Samantha is wrong, so his probably is as well.

      According to the latest record I've found, John served in War of 1812, so he probably married shortly after that war -- about 1815/1816. That would fit with the ages of his children on the 1830 census. We have no information about John's children by his first wife, Elizabeth. The sons do not appear with John and Samantha on the 1840 census, so they were probably married and out of the home by then. There is an unknown daughter, b 1820-1825, with John and Samantha in 1840.
      ==================
      New record found 30 Nov 2013
      John apparently served in the War of 1812 from Virginia. Widow Susan Amantha [sic] Stone filed for pension based on John's service as a Private in Capt. Mallery's Co., VA Militia. Pension Number: WO 34801
