John Stone Immigrant - Rugeley - Wrong?

Surnames: Stone
I'm a direct decendant of the the John Stone that died in Virginia in 1736, wife was either Mary O'Brissel or Mary Wilkins, children John, Eusebious, Esther, Steven, Sarah, William, Ann, Francis & Nicholas(The Quaker)-

there are more than 1000 familey trees on this site that shows John as an immigrant from Rugeley, Staffordshire and the son of Richard Stone of Rugeley - this seems to be information from a comprehensive chart compiled by several authors copywritten by D La Pierre Ballard and on a website

I have recently been to Rugeley, Staffordshire and took the chance to visit the library and go thru the Parish Register. I can't seem to find the link that would show the John Stone in Rugeley is indeed the John Stone mentioned above.

There are so many trees that have this and I wonder if they are all copied from the above referenced document?

Here is a snap shot of what I found checking from 1573-1708

all dates and names are from this particular parish register so if it is not included then it wasn't in that regisiter

Nicholas Stone (d. 3 July 1679), mar. 3 Jan 1617 - Jane Bannister (bap. 18 Sept 1584 or 26 Mar 1592 d. 12 July 1625) children - Jane (bap. 5 May 1622 d. 7 May 1622) Mary (bap. 14 Jan 1627 or 8 Jun 1628 d. 13 Aug 1677)Jane probably died in child birth of Mary - Nicholas next child showed it was from Nicholas and Mary(prossibly a new wife not married in Rugeley Parish)John (b. 6 May 1632 d.17 Sep 1672)more on him later - Susan (bap. 9 Sep 1638) Thomas (bap. 9 Dec 1645 d. 5 Mar 1708)more on him, too

Richard Stone (d. 12 Nov 1681) mar. Dorothy (?)(d.8 Oct 1684) children - Mary (d. 5 Jan 1646) Jane (bap. 9 Oct 1648) Judith (bap. 14 May 1651) Richard (bap. 11 Jan 1653 d. 1 Oct 1684)

John Stone (son of Nicholas)(bap. 6 May 1632 d. 17 Sep 1672) mar. 20 Sep 1655 to Elizabeth Adey (d. 3 Aug 1666) children - John (bap. 31 Jan 1660 d. 13 Feb 1660) mar. 3 Jan 1667 Elizabeth Marshall (d. 28 Jan 1672) children - Sara (bap. 14 Nov 1667)

Thomas Stone (son of Nicholas) (bap. 9 Dec 1645) mar. Elizabeth - children (at this point I won't list all children, they had 9, but only 3 made it out of childhood) John (bap. 21 Oct 1584 d. 24 Oct 1684)

This is all I've found.

I'm looking for feed back and help finding John the Immigrant's origins - such a commom name in England.

Sorry I'm so long winded but wanted to give you all the info I had.
