Do you have more on your John Stone born 1717 in Devon,
England and migrated to North Carolina. I am looking for
more information on a Capt. John Stone of old Edgecombe-
Bute-Halifax-Franklin County, North Carolina. The first
evidence I have of a John and Ann Stone of Edgecombe was
in the court records of 1755. Capt. John Stone that I am
researching could have been born as early as 1717 but I am
thinking closer to 1734. He had children by Alicia Hurst
in Edgecombe-Bute-Halifax District on Fishing Creek with
the second and last child, a son, being born in 1755. I am
not sure if they ever married. Alicia died before 1757 for
Capt. John Stone had married Pegee Merritt and they had
the first of their four known children in 1760. Their
first child they named John. John would grow up and marry
Sarah "Sally" Walker. I am trying to find Capt. John Stone
parents, brothers and sisters. All of his children are;
a possible illigitimate son, William Green...possible
mother was the youngest sister of Henry Green who married
the daughter of William Stone and Elizabeth Dennett thought
to be the sister of Capt. John William Stone which would
make Henry Green and Capt. John Stone possible brother-in
laws. The next two children of Capt. John Stone were born
by Alicia Hurst who also raised William Green. They are
Mary Stone born about 1753/54..Jonathan Stone born in 1755
Alicia died shortly after the birth of Jonathan for as
stated Capt. John William Stone had married Pegee Merritt
daughter of John Merritt by 1757. If another child was
born between 1758 to 1759 we have no knowledge. The first
living child of John and Pegee Stone was John Stone, born
in 1760. Another son, William was born in 1763. Another
son, Merritt Stone was born in 1765 while their daughter
Elizabeth was born in 1767. Not sure who William Green or
Mary Stone married. Jonathan married Felisha Cooke. John
married Sarah Walker. William's wife is unknown right now.
Merritt married Karenhappuch "Happy" Stallings while
Elizabeth Stone married John Hight Jr.,. Any help would
be much appreciated.
