  • Notes 
    • From Gregory Stone Genealogy (citation details below):

      In early life [he] exhibited natural capacity and desire for learning, and after preparatory study under Rev. Joseph Wheaton of Holliston and Rev. Charles Train of Framingham, he was admitted to Brown University where he graduated A.B. in 1820 and A.M. in 1822. He then took up medical studies under Dr. John B. Kittredge of Framingham, completing them at the Harvard Medical School where he received the degree of M.D. in 1824. Soon afterwards he settled in Walpole, Mass., where he practiced his profession over forty years, until within a short time of his decease, 13 Aug. 1869, in his seventy-second year.

      Dr. Stone was a skilful, successful, and popular family physician, and obtained an extensive practice in Walpole and the surrounding towns; and his high character, abilities, geniality, and sympathetic disposition secured for him the confidence, esteem, and affection of a large circle of patients. While assiduously and faithfully devoted to the duties of his profession, he was also much interested in education, labored for the improvement of the schools, and was one of the earliest open advocates of temperance during the first agitation on this subject in Massachusetts about 1830. He was a man of calm judgment, firm convictions, and scholarly tastes. In politics he was long a conservative adherent of the Whig party, and in religion was a consistent member of the Unitarian church and a constant attendant at its public worship. For some years he was a councillor of the Massachusetts Medical Society and president of the Norfolk District Medical Society.
