Biography of John & Abigail Stone
Yates County, NY Biographies





Stone, John and Abigail (Winship), were pioneers in Milo, N. Y., coming from Chester County, Pa., in 1797 and locating on the farm now owned by Calvin H. Stone. In their family were nine children. John Stone died in the town in December, 1873. Calvin H. Stone has always lived on this farm, having been born here September 15, 1815. The property was sold to him by his father prior to the latter's death. In 1849 Calvin married Mary A. Keeler by whom he has two children, John A. and Charles A. Mr. Stone was formerly a Democrat, but changed his views on account of his opinions on the slavery question, which to his mind made Democracy and anti slavery incompatible. He has since then been a strong Republican, and as such was assessor of his town for twenty three years. He is also a faithful member of the Second Milo Church (Baptist) and for about thirty years has been superintendent of its Sunday school.
