      Thomas Stone, son of John and Elizabeth Stone, was born in Charles County during 1677, according to a deposition made in 1721. He married first Martha, the daughter of Colonel Philip Hoskins. The latter died in 1714, and besides appointing Thomas Stone as the overseer of his estate, he named as heirs his grandson Thomas Stone and daughter Martha Stone. Oswald Hoskins, son of Colonel Philip Hoskins, died in 1721 and named by will his brother-in-law Thomas Stone as the overseer of his estate, and at the same time mentioned his sister Martha Stone.

      The following list of children has been proved, but the fact that he named only two children in his will and referred to other children makes it difficult to establish an absolute list.

      Children of Thomas and Martha (Hoskins) Stone
      1. Thomas Stone.
      2. David Stone married twice. q.v.
      3. Anne Stone, died 1761, married Roger, son of Gerard Fowke.
      Issue: Catherine and Gerard.
      4. Mary Stone married William, son of Robert and Mary (Hoskins)
      Hanson. Issue: Aurelia; William; Theophilus; Samuel; and
      Jenny Hoskins.

      In 1715 he, as Captain Thomas Stone being a member of the Assembly, signed a petition to His Excellency on the death of the Queen and also the petition upon the ascendancy of His Majesty, George I, to the throne.3

      Thomas Stone leased to William Thornton, Gent., of King George County, Virginia, 500 acres of land in King George County, which Edward Maddock in his will, proved in Stafford County during 1694, had devised to John Robbins, son of Robert, of Maryland, but in the event that John Robbins died without issue the land was to descend to John Stone, son of John, of Maryland, and his heirs, and inasmuch as both parties died without issue the land descended to Thomas Stone, the present leasor "only brother of the said John of whole blood as heir-at-law".

      Thomas Stone after being a widower for several years married Catherine (???), but it is believed that no issue resulted from the union.

      Thomas Stone dated his will May 25, 1727, it being proved the following November 7, by the Rev. William MacConchie, Henry Barnes, and Verlinda Boughton. He devised his son David one-half of the dwelling-plantation and personalty. His widow Catherine was to enjoy the other half of the dwelling-plantation during life then to his son David. Certain personalty at her death were to be divided among unnamed children. The residue of the estate was bequeathed to David and Mary.

      The inventory of the personal estate of "Thomas Stone Sr." was filed on November 23, 1728, by Catherine Stone as the executrix, with Matthew Stone and William Stone as the kinsmen.

      Catherine Stone, whose will was proved in Charles County on February 1, 1750, by John Blackwood and Margaret Smith, is believed to be his widow. She named William Hanson and Gerret Fowke as executors and the following of no stated relationship as her heirs--Anne Fowke; Mary Hanson, the wife of William Hanson; Catherine Fowke, the daughter of Gerret Fowke; Richard Reeder; Gerret Fowke who received 500 acres of "Aqunkeck's Hills" near Permunkey; and David Stone, Mary Stone, and Anne Stone, children of David Stone.

      Isabella Ray, born say 1694, was the indentured servant of Benoni Thomas in July 1713 when she admitted in Charles County court to having a "Mallato" child by a "negroe." The court ordered that she be sold for seven years and that her child be bound out until the age of thirty-one. She was the servant of Thomas Stone on 14 June 1715 when she confessed to the same offense, and on 9 June 1719 and March 1722 when she admitted in Charles County court that she had two more mixed-race children. On 10 March 1723/4 the court sold her to Stone for twenty-one years [Court Records 1711-5, 250, 255, 483, 499; 1720-2, 307; 1723-4, 217]. She was probably the mother of

      1. Sarah, born say 1715, presented for having an illegitimate child about 1735. On 9 June 1747 Anne Fowke petitioned the Charles County court saying that Sarah, her "Mallatto Servant," had a child about twelve years previous, and she had neglected to have her adjudged for the expenses of having the child. The court ordered that Sarah serve an additional two years [Court Record 1746-7, 84].

      2. Charles Ray, born say 1722, was a "Molatto" married to Bridget Rae in November 1757 when the Charles County court granted his petition to have her declared levy free. His wife may have been identical to Bridget Ray, a "Mulatto" presented by the Charles County court in March 1749 for having an illegitimate child. She was presented for the same offense in August 1743 with no race of the mother or child indicated [Court Record 1741-44, 627; 1748-50, 603; 1756-7, 297].
