There was a Robert Stockton living in Cumberland Co KY. There were also the heirs of John Stockton of Pittsylvania Co VA who came to this area- and a Robert was not named among these. I cannot positively identify the Robert in Cumberland as being this Robert, son of the Rev. Robert & Catherine Blakey but some Stockton researchers seem to think so. I include Cumberland records I have found - however, there is also indication that Robert, son of Rev. Robert & Catherine Blakely remained right there in Barren Co KY:

Barren Co KY records which contradict the fact that this is the Robert Stockton found in Cumberland Co::

Probably the daughter of Robert Jr - it would appear that Robert was deceased given that Nancy gave permission, but see next record.

Was this record actually a record of Reuben Stockton rather than Robert? There are several unanswered questions that I'll leave to Stockton researchers.

Robert STOCKTON Jr. and Nancy BLAKEY were married.1 Robert and Nancy were first cousins. Nancy BLAKEY1, daughter of William BLAKEY and Elizabeth SPENCER, was born (date unknown).
