Hello Louie Stoneking, If you haven't already found out about the Stoneking name, e-mail me at and I will tell you what I know about Stoneking. In my records I have a Victor Stoneking as a son of John Lee and Susie Anna Six Stoneking. This Victor would have been born ca1920 because I have John Lee's birth year as 1892. I'll help if I can. John

Hello Mary - If your Victor is the Victor that I have in my records, he is gr/gr/gr/gr/grandson of the 1747 immigrant, Johann Jakob Steinkoenig. He was a farmer from Germany, and came to America on the ship "Bilander Vernon" in 1747 with his wife and family. His wife died that year and he maried a Sececa Indian. The union of Jacob and the Seneca had children and sometime, probably with the American born, the name was anglicized to Stoneking.
Victor Stoneking lineage is as follows: 1)Victor b-ca1925; 2)John Lee Stoneking b-ca 1892 father; 3)George W. b-1850 grfather; 4)Jacob Jr. b-1821 gr/grdfather; 5)Jacob Sr. b-1790 gr/gr/grdfather; 6)Jacob II b-1765 gr/gr/gr/grdfather and 7)Johann Jakob (Jacob)Steinkoenig b-1707 in Germany.
I don't have much on Victor, only that he was a child of John Lee. John Lee was married twice so Victor would have brothers and half brothers. Contact me by E-mail at - - I can probably put you in touch with others that know more about this family than I do. At least we can share information.

I am interested in the spelling of your last name. My great grandmother's name was Sarah Alice Stonking, from Joplin(?), MO. She moved to OK and married Fred McBride. (I don't know if she married before or after moving.) Any possible relation or more info?

The name Stoneking in my family ended in the mid 1800's. I have not tried to follow the descendents caring that surname. If you have the name of your Stoneking ancestors in the mid 1800's there may be a connection. You dropped the "e" in the spelling of the name. This could have come about for many reasons. However, my guess is that all Stonekings are in some way related. Search in Pa.,Kentucky, West Virginia. Follow the migration trails.
