Who were these 2 Stone sisters?
Nancy Jerusha Stone was born about 1802 in South Carolina. She married about 1818
to Edward Colvin; Edward Colvin, born around 1798 in Chester County, South Carolina. The couple left Chester County, South Carolina shortly after the census of 1830 and moved to Green County, Alabama… one of their children Martha A. Colvin was born in 1833 in Alabama. So we know that Nancy Jerusha Stone was alive in 1833 in Alabama.
Edward Colvin went on to live until Feb 3, 1849 and died in Smith County, Texas. What took him to Texas? Where was Edward Colvin buried in Smith County, Texas?
Did Nancy Jerusha Stone make the move to Texas? Would anyone know when and where Nancy Jerusha Stone died and her place of burial?
Edward was mentioned June 27, 1846 (it is stated in document that Joseph Crosby's widow and the 3 orphans are several years now permanently in Alabama, and that the children's mother ,Elizabeth Stone Crosby, is sister in law of Edward Colvin.) at Pickens County, Alabama probate.
Elizabeth Stone, sister of Nancy Jerusha Stone was born between 1800 and 1810 in South Carolina and married Joseph Crosby (Crosby was born between 1800 and 1810 in South Carolina) They married between 1825 and 1830, judging the eldest daughter’s birthdate; Their children:
1. Emily A Crosby was born about October 17, 1829 at Chester County, South Carolina. Emily died August 30, 1893 at Pickens County, Alabama.
2. Amanda F Crosby was born in 1830 at Chester County, South Carolina.
3. Guthrie D. Crosby was born about 1833 at Chester County, South Carolina.
Joseph Crosby died intestate, before July 1833; and his estate settled in Chester County, South Carolina. Then as noted above, Elizabeth and the children relocated to Alabama.
I am almost certain that I have identified the father and mother of these 2 Stone sisters. But I need more evidence; Does anyone know more about them? How, when and where did they die? Any other records? documents? leads?
Where did these 2 sisters and their families live and where were they buried? Were there other Stone families in these areas, that they could be linked with ? It would be great to share research with other researchers.
