Chapter 4 Isaac Hugh Stone - 1809-1852


     Isaac Hugh Stone, son of Henry Dessex Stone and Elizabeth (Hansford) Stone, was born in the latter part of 1809, probably in Morgan County, Georgia. He moved with his parents to Montgomery County, Alabama in the 1810s and to Jackson County, Florida about 1824.

     Isaac Hugh Stone married circa 1834 Caroline Wood, daughter of Silas Wood and Rhoda Prudence (Chapman) Wood. Silas Wood and Rhoda Prudence Chapman had married on 4 December 1809. Silas Wood was listed as a head of household in the 1825 census of Jackson County. Enumerated with him were 3 males under 21, 1 female over 21, 2 females under 21, and 2 blacks. The will of Silas Wood of 12 November 1835 mentioned Isaac and Caroline's daughter Elizabeth (Elisa) Prudence Stone:

     "In the name of God, Amen. I, Silas Wood of Jackson County in the Territory of Florida, being in perfect health of body, and of sound and disposing mind, memory and understanding, Considering the certainty of death, and the uncertainty of the time thereof, and being desirous of settling my worldly affairs, and thereby be the better prepared to leave this world when it shall please God to call me hence, do therefore make and publish this my last Will & testament, in manner and form following; that is to say:____________
     "First and principally, I commit my Soul into the hands of the Almighty God, and my body to the earth, to be decently buried at the discretion of my Executor hereinafter named, and after my debts and funeral charges are paid, I devise and bequeath as follows:____________

     The will of Silas Wood was filed and recorded in the clerk's office of Jackson County, Book F, pages 449 & 450.

     Isaac Hugh Stone appeared on a number of early Florida documents. In a petition to Congress, dated January 1831, "to establish an arsenal at some eligible place in case of invasion ...location town of Ocheesee," Isaac H. Stone, H. D. Stone, David C. Stone and Silas Wood were among the signers. On 13 February 1834 the governor's appointments for Jackson County included: Hugh Stone, auctioneer; justices of the peace, Henry D. Stone and Silas Wood. On 17 February 1840, Isaac H. Stone was nominated as a justice of the peace for Jackson County. In a memorial to Congress seeking statehood, postmarked 9 July 1842, Jackson County, A. J. Wood, S. Wood, were signers; postmarked 9 July 1842, Gadsden County, Isaac H. Stone, Shephard H. Stone, and Wm. J. Sansone were among the signers.

     Isaac H. Stone received patents near Ochesee from the Internal Improvement Fund of Florida for: Lot 2, Section 34, Range 8 W, Township 1 N on 30 June 1840 and the NW1/4 of SW1/4 of Section 34, Range 8 W, Township 1 N, on 30 November 1840.

     The 1840 census of Jackson County listed the Isaac H. Stone household to contain: one male-5, one male 20-30, one male 30-40 years old, one female-5, one female 15-20. That no female of Caroline's age is enumerated tends to confirm her death. The 30-40 year-old male would be Isaac, the 20-30 year-old male and 15-20- year-old female are unidentifiable. The female under 5 is Elizabeth Prudence Stone, and the male under 5 is Shade Sutton Stone.

     Isaac Hugh Stone married (2) ca. 1844 Frances Sansom (or Sanson). She was the mother of Isaac Hugh, Jr. and Rhoda. She died sometime after the birth of Rhoda in May 1847. The last record in Jackson County, Florida of Isaac Hugh Stone was, according to Pebble Stone, in 1849 when he reported real estate for tax purposes.

     Isaac Hugh Stone, subsequently, moved to Monroe County, Georgia where he married (3) 18 July 1850 Elizabeth English.

     The 1850 Calhoun County Census, dated 7 November, listed three of Isaac's children living apart from him in households of relatives. Eliza Stone, age 15, was living in household 129/129 of Almerine P. Wood and his 25-year-old wife Mary Ann Wood, and their children, Silas, 8, Almerin P., 6, Jesse, 2. Almerine P. Wood, a 36-year-old Georgia native, with a worth of $4,000, was the brother-in-law of Isaac H. Stone, Sr. Also living with Almerine was 55-year-old Georgia-born Rhoda P. Wood, his mother. Five-year-old Isaac H. Stone, Jr., and four-year-old Rhoda (R. M. in census) Stone were residing with William J. Sansom, a 33-year-old Alabama native, a "musition" with a worth of $1,000, who was probably Frances' brother. Also included were R. M., 50-year-old Georgia-born female; Marthy, 28, born Ala.; Elizabeth S., 24, born Ala.; Virginia A., 19, born Ala.; and Florida-born, Benet T., 18, Mary E., 15; John S., 12; Elizabeth S., 7. (The first name of Rhoda M. Stone has also been given as Ronda, but her name was Rhoda.)

     Isaac Hugh Stone, Sr. died probably in December 1852, Franklin County, Florida.

     Record of Wills, Vol. 1, 1846-1894, page 61, Franklin County, Florida has the probate record for Isaac H. Stone:

"In the name of The State of Florida

     On 7 June 1854, Clinton Thigpin, agent for Mrs. E. Stone, appeared before Judge Eppes and swore that a correct statement of the acts & doings of admx. of the estate of I. H. Stone was: CR received of a bill & Griffin $172.81; T. J. Eppes 125.00; sold cattle 200.00; to balance in hands adminis. 316.78; total $814.59.

     On 2 May 1855, Mrs. E. Stone, administratrix of the estate of Isaac H. Stone, appeared before S. Baker, Justice of the Peace of Franklin County, to swear that she had fully administered the estate, paid all demands, relinquished all her claims as set out and asked to be discharged from further administration. Assets of the estate were in the hands of W. J. Sansem [writing is difficult to read; this would be William J. Sansom or Sanson] of Calhoun County who is Guardian of my deceased husband's children - 1 Deaf & Dumb negro 5.00, 1 negro nearly grown 500.00, Land 200.00, total $705.00.

     Pebble C. Stone, in an undated letter received on 21 February 1979 by Spessard Stone, wrote, "I have not been able to find Isaac Hugh Sr. grave but I have located the four children and have been to all 4 graves. They all have markers. I believe Isaac Hugh Sr. does too if I knew where to look. But I have not been able to find any written evidence. All I have is what my father told me that his father told him that his father was Isaac Hugh Stone and your grandfather [Isaac Hugh Stone 1870-1925] was named for him."

     Isaac Hugh and Caroline (Wood) Stone had children 1 & 2, and he and Frances (Sansom) Stone had children 3 & 4:

In his CSA pension application, he variously gave his birth as 17 Oct 1837 and 17 Oct 1847. Early censuses establish 1845 as his birth year. The 1850 census of Calhoun County listed him as five years old and the 1860 Calhoun County census as fifteen years old.
     Isaac married (1) in Calhoun Co., Fla. 12 Sep 1867 Anne Flowers, born ca. 1850, daughter of Capt. Flowers who formerly lived at Apalachicola, and later Calhoun Co., Fla. Ella Stone’s CSA pension application has her “Annah,” but the Edenfield Web Site spelled her given name “Anne.”

     On 1 Jun 1903, Isaac Hugh Stone applied for a Confederate pension from the state of Florida. He swore that he enlisted on or about May 1863 in Calhoun County in Captain Clinton Thigpen's Company A, 2d Fla. Cav. He averred: "I was wounded in right thigh at battle at Darvey's Still but it was a flesh wound. I was taken sick with fever at Baldwin Fla. & was sent to the hospital at Marianna Fla & was there until the raid at Marianna Sept 27th 1864 when I under instruction from officers left to escape capture & went home & later returned to my company-- I contracted cattarrh of head & bronchitis while in service & have never recovered from it. I also contracted rheumatism while in active service & stricken that. The fever above mentioned disabled me & I have never fully recovered my strength. I have kidney trouble & suffer greatly." I. H. Stone gave his P. O. address as Sneads, Fla. In this application he gave his birth (1845 is more likely) as "17th day of October 1837 in Jackson county, State of Florida." Cornelius Rogers and Lt. Archibald McMillan, late of Co. A, 2nd Fla. Cav., swore they served with him. His claim was approved 15 Mar 1904, with pay from 5 Jun 1903 at the rate of $96.00 per annum.
     On 17 Jul 1909, Isaac H. Stone reapplied under the Act of 1909. On this occasion he gave his birth as "17 day of Oct 1847, in the county of Jackson, State of Florida." He stated that he had enlisted as I. H. Stone at Camp Jehu in Calhoun Co., Fla. April or May 1863 in Co. A and was honorably discharged at Baldwin and took the oath in Tallahassee in May 1865. He listed his property as: 160 acres in southeast part of Jackson County, Fla. $500.00, 3 horses--13 cows--50 head, 310.00, personal property, 200.00, total $1010.00. He gave his postoffice address as Cowfort, Jackson County. Thioph West, M.D., diagnosed, "the scars of gun shots wounds on the right shoulder and the right leg, which indicate considerable disability of the right arm and leg in addition to the above condition he is advanced in life, being 62 years old." His claim was approved 1Sep 1909, with pay continued at the previous rate of $120 per annum, pensioner no. 2206.
     On 1 Sep 1910 Isaac H. Stone of Route 1, Box 22, Grand Ridge, Fla. applied for a pension increase. He gave his age as 70. Records are incomplete whether or not it was granted.
     Isaac Hugh Stone died 28 Jan 1919, Grand Ridge, Jackson County and was buried in Shady Grove Cemetery.
     After his death, his heirs, J. L. Stone, Clara Lewis, Lula Edenfield, T. B. Stone, J. H. Stone, Eliza Money, and Ella Stone in her own behalf and as guardian of her minor son, I. H. Stone, Jr. petitioned J. Bowers Campbell, County Judge of Jackson County, for a settlement of his estate. Ella Stone, I. H. Stone, Jr., and J. H. Stone each received a forty-acre tract of land; the others having each prior to Isaac's death been deeded forty acres. Furthermore, all of the personal property, including $548.15 in the Citizens State Bank of Marianna, was divided, apparently, in Feb 1919. That Isaac, Sr. was a farmer was evidenced by assets, which included: 40 head of hogs, 12 head of cattle, 24 head of goats, 1 9-year-old gray horse, 1 19-year-old gray horse, 1 mower & rake, 1 lot plows, 1 cultivator & middle buster, 1 sugar mill & pan.
     On 11 Mar 1919 Ella Stone applied for a pension as the widow of I. H. Stone, who died 28 Jan 1919 in Jackson County. She stated she had resided continuously in Florida "since birth now 52 years ago." Her address was Rt. 1, Grand Ridge. Her claim was approved 7 May 1919, with pay from 18 Mar 1919 at the rate of $180 per annum, pensioner no. 2134. In continuing her application on 4 Dec 1930 at Grand Ridge, Ella declared in part: "The truth is Mr. Stone never enlisted at all. Captain McMillan just picked him up when he was a boy, too young to be mustered into service and he stayed with McMillan's Co. Capt. McMillan gave him a horse to ride and later a gun. That is what Mr. Stone told me. Mr. Stones father was named Isaac H. Stone...Mr. Stone was raised up an orphan. His parents both died when he was small. He never knew how old he was. He had no record of his age." On 27 Feb 1931, Ella was dropped from the roll after H. M. Dickson, 54, of Shady Grove, on 4 Dec 1930 gave a statement, in which he said that Isaac's "wife and my wife were cousins... Isaac Stone, if living would now be about 68 years old..." Thus, if true Isaac would only have been an infant in the war and his widow ineligible for a pension. On 3 Mar 1931 Ella responded with an appeal and subsequently with affidavits proving I. H. Stone's age as being the eighties, if living. One affidavit of 9 Mar 1931 was from J. W. Yon, born 31 May 1858, who related, "I. H. Stone and his mother were half brother and sister..." On 11 Dec 1933 W. Alford of Jackson County swore, "Isaac Hugh Stone...lived in the upper edge of Calhoun County, and lower edge of Jackson County...the only Isaac Hugh Stone who lived in said territory except his son Isaac for the last fifty years..." On 2 Aug 1937 Ella designated I. H. Stone to receive, after her death, all amounts accruing to her as a Confederate pensioner.
     On 26 Sep 1958 the Dade County Veterans Service Office wrote the state service officer in St. Petersburg in support of her claim. On 2 Oct 1958 the Dade County Veterans Service Office wrote Tallahassee in regard Confederate veteran widow's benefits for Ella E. Stone, 621 N.W. 97th Street, Miami, who was drawing state funds as a Confederate widow. A letter, dated 7 Oct 1958, Miami, noted Ella had not remarried since the death of Isaac H. Stone.
     Ella Stone died 3 Aug 1960, Grand Ridge. State "Death Registrations" gave her age as 99, but her initial pension application indicated she was 93. At her death she was receiving $100 pension per month. I. H. Stone, her designated agent, of Route 1, Box 35, Grand Ridge, received three days' benefits, $9.62.
