Graduated from West Point 1842
My question is ... where does the name "STONE" come from in his family linage..
A biography list his parents as John Alexander and Margaret Davidson, of Baltimore (married 1818).They had 10 children..
His paternal grandparents are William Alexander and Sarah Gordon (immigrated from NC)
His maternal grandparents are Thomas Davidson and Elizabeth Longbottom (emigrants from Maryland.)
Would like to know where the "Stone" fits in.
Also, have stumbled across a "James Barton Stone Alexander" b. 1836 d.1861.
Also graduated from West Point in 1856
Can anyone tell me if they are related and how...
Tks in advance..
