I'm trying to identify the parents of my 2nd great grandfather, William A. Stone, b: Sept 1862 in Alabama. My William A. Stone married Martha Martina Royster, and his parents were supposedly born in GA.
I have located a Will Stone, age 7, m, w, born in AL, in the 1870 Clay Co., AL Census. He's living with the Allen Brooks family. There is also a Martha Stone, age 23, f, w, born in GA, living with this family.
The very next family following them in the Census is another Brooks family. It's Abraham Brooks, age 75, m w, farmer, from NC. He has a Lucinda Brooks living with him, at age 63, f, w, keeping house, born in GA. <--- I found this interesting since the Allen Brooks (age 66, m, w, miller, born in SC, "also" has a "Lucenda Brooks" (age 63, f, w, keeping house, born in GA), living with him and she has the very same info about her on the census as the other Lucinda does.
This Will Stone's information fits my William A. Stone. Can anyone tell me anything about the two Brooks families, or the Martha & Will Stone? Are Martha & Will, mother & son, or could they be siblings, cousins, etc?
