Morgan Township -
JAMES STONE.  July 4, 1803, the father of the subject of this sketch made his entrance into the township of Morgan.  He came originally from Connecticut.  In the War of 1812 he was in command of a volunteer militia company.  The farm upon which he made a settlement is now owned by the heirs of James Stone, Jr.  His parents were James and Isabel Dewey Stone, who deceased, the father Feb. 17, 1831, and the mother Feb. 24, 1860.  James Stone, Jr., was born Feb. 13, 1809.  He was the fifth of a family of eight children and acquired his education as best he might at that early day, attending the district school at such times as he cold be spared from the labors of the farm until he arrived at the age of twelve years, after which he studied evenings by the light of the wide open fireplace.
     About the time of the death of his father he became the owner of fifty acres of land, and this was the start for the ample fortune afterwards accumulated.
     He was for many years actively engaged in the dairy interests of the county, usually manufacturing the milk from one hundred cows.  He will be remembered as having made several enormous cheeses; for one of these, weighing some nineteen pounds, he was awarded a silver cup by the American Institute in New York, in 1848.
     In his township he was public spirited and energetic, and as a consequence was usually in some township office.  Was a justice of the peace for many years.
     He early espoused the cause of the colored man, and was one of the seven in Morgan township who voted for James G. Birney, candidate of the Abolition party for President.  His house was a station on the underground railroad in the early, perilous days of the slavery agitation.
     Early left with the care of his father's family, he brought them up in a manner creditable to his kindness of heart.  In his social relations he was ever kind and affectionate.
     On the 5th of February, 1834, Mr. Stone was united in marriage to Abbie A. Loveridge, who came with her parents from Colchester, Conn., and was residing in Morgan township at the time of her marriage.  From this marriage was born, on Aug. 29, 1836, Abbie A., who is still resident on the old homestead.  The 6th of the subsequent October the mother of Abbie died, and on Sept. 8, 1842, Mr. Stone was again married to Nancy M., daughter of Harry W. and Nancy Wright Loomis, who were of the pioneer settlers in Windsor township.  The children of this marriage are James Birney, born Aug. 25, 1845, deceased; Berenia L., born Apr. 20, 1849, deceased; Lillie Bertha, born June 20, 1854, deceased; and James Ralph, who was born Aug. 22, 1858, and is now completing his education at Grand River institute, Austinburg, this county.
