But you see, if those dates are correct, John Stone, Jr.. would have been born before 1674 to have had a child in 1694; that would be good news for me since I have the wife of John Stone, Jr. [Susanna Singletary] born in 1679. But the first message in this thread says:
"John Stone, Sr. b. Nov 24, 1668 Andover, MA
m. Nov 14, 1690 Andover, MA (to Mary Russ)"
How could his Father have been born in 1668 & have a son in 1674? Therefore, I assume the John Stone Sr who married 1690 Mary Russ, was not the father of the SC John Stone, Jr.
Do you agree?
The date that you give for death of John Stone III is the date that the will of John Stone, Charles Town, blockmaker, was proved. This is very confusing. They appear to be entirely different people.
Anyone reading Ancestry Message Boards want to discuss the Stone family and the 4 or 5 seemingly different John Stones with me?
