Re: Pvt.James Stone 24th Virginia Cav.
Thank you to Mr George Martin and Mr A.H. Hurd III for your response and research. According to my deed and the documented history of my property, a family by the last name of Jones purchased the property around 1900 from an unknown person. This timelime seems to coincide with the Stone's departure from Greenbrier Co to Indiana. Further research at the courthouse may reveal who owned the farm prior to the Jones family. Our property is located in the Fort Spring District of Greenbrier County. We think that the Stone's who are listed in the 1880 census of Greenbrier Co Fort Spring District may be previous owners of our farm. So it appears that the Pvt. James Stone buried in the graveyard was actually in the 26th Virginia Battalion Infantry. The current headstone on the grave is not the original government issued headstone and seems to be a brass on stone plaque and is probably not greater than 50 years old. I will contact Jim Talbert at the Greenbrier Historical Society. Thank you for all your help. Tim
