On the Land Grant issue, I have some documentation. It is a bit odd though. On the day that Maris Catherine Davis Stone married Allen Carter Jones they filed papers as executors of William Thornton Stone's Estate AND filed to claim his land grant. I have not had a chance to research exactly what happened to the land grant - I think it was in Montgomery Co, but need to double-check. If you will send me your email address, I will scan what I have and forward it on to you.
