    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 25 Mar 1649, Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts

    Notes:

    Of Richard Goard's daughter Sarah, Robert Charles Anderson (citation details below) gives her baptismal date, then says "no further record." But there is further record of her — she married John Merrifield in or before 1665 (based on the Feb 1665/6 date of the birth of their first child, John) and then died sometime between 9 Dec 1678 (when her husband died) and 16 Jan 1678/9, the date of his probate. Credit to the unidentified author of Sarah Goard's WeRelate page for figuring this out:

    The probate of Sarah's husband John Merrifield, dated 16 Jan 1678/9, awards administration to "John Goad of Roxbury (Brother to the Widdow of sd. Merrifeild now also dece'd" [emphasis ours]. Subsequent to this, Sarah's brother John Goard of Roxbury died on 18 Feb 1679 ("of the pox," Anderson notes), so Peter Killey of Roxbury wound up being appointed administrator instead. But this definitely identifies the wife of John Merrifield as the Sarah who was a daughter of Richard Goard. And it corrects Clarence Almon Torrey's error in New England Marriages Prior to 1700 in making her a daughter of Joseph Goard.

    Family/Spouse: John Merrifield. John was born before 16 Apr 1649; died on 9 Dec 1678 in Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    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.

    Notes:

    He appears in several sources as "William Ebenezer Stone," and while it's possible that this was how he was christened, it's obvious from the record of his doings as an adult that he went by "William Eben Stone."

    From the The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, April 1922, page 83: "William Eben Stone, Ph.B.", by J. Gardner Bartlett:

    WILLIAM EBEN STONE, of Cambridge, Mass., elected to resident membership in the New England Historic Genealogical Society 5 May 1880, died at his home in Cambridge 23 February 1921.

    He was born at Walpole, Mass., 27 November 1845, the youngest son of Dr. Ebenezer7 and Elizabeth Holbrook (Hawes) Stone, the father being a graduate of Brown University and the Harvard Medical School and for over forty years a successful physician in Walpole and the surrounding towns. The progenitor of the family in America was Dea. Gregory1 Stone of Cambridge, Mass., in 1637, from whom Mr. Stone was descended through John2 of Sudbury, Mass., Nathaniel3 and Ebenezer4 of Framingham, Mass., Silas5 of Natick, Mass., and Dublin, N. H., who died near Saratoga while serving in the American Army in the Revolution, Silas6 of Sherborn, Mass., who also was a soldier in the American Army in the Revolution and was severely wounded at the Battle of White Plains, N. Y., and Dr. Ebenezer7 Stone of Walpole, Mass., his father. In all of his ancestral lines Mr. Stone traced his descent from the early Puritan founders of New England, including among his ancestors the Waites, Hills, Pratts, Russells, Coolidges, Twitchells, Bullards, Barbours, Haweses, and many other well-known families of Middlesex and Norfolk Counties, Mass.

    Mr. Stone was graduated at Brown University in 1866 with the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy, and then studied mining engineering for a year as a member of the first class ever graduated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1867 he went to Marquette, Mich., where he remained seven years as a chemist and engineer in the employ of various iron mining companies. In 1874 he secured an interest in the Champion Iron Company of Michigan, soon afterwards became treasurer and general manager of this company, with offices in Boston, and continued in these positions for twenty-five years. The mines of this iron company were rich in a scarce high-grade ore which was essential in the manufacture of steel by the earlier methods of the open-hearth process, so that the operations of the company, under the efficient, skillful direction of Mr. Stone, became extremely profitable. During all these years Mr. Stone's home was in Cambridge and his office in Boston; but four times each year he spent a few weeks at the mines in Michigan, supervising their management. About 1901 the company was very advantageously sold to Pennsylvania steel interests merged in the United States Steel Corporation, and Mr. Stone retired from active business with an ample fortune.

    From his early years Mr. Stone was enthusiastically interested in the genealogy of the Stone family and the history of his ancestors, and by his persistent efforts from 1880 to 1896, through researches by Col. Joseph Lemuel Chester, Henry FitzGilbert Waters, and himself, he succeeded in locating Gregory Stone at Great Bromley, co. Essex, England, and in tracing back his ancestry there for several generations. These results were reported by Mr. Stone at the first meeting of the Stone Family Association, held in Boston 26 January 1897. Of this organization Mr. Stone was the predominant but unostentatious leader during the rest of his life, serving as its vice president, 1897-1904, its president, 1904-1909, and a member of its executive committee, 1909-1921. The activities of this association culminated in the appearance in 1918 of the Gregory Stone Genealogy, an important work of nine hundred pages, the compilation and publication of which were almost wholly due to the enthusiastic efforts and extreme liberality of Mr. Stone.

    In 1907 Mr. Stone was appointed a member of the Committee on English Research of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and he served on this committee the remaining fourteen years of his life. During all this time he was not only a generous annual contributor to the funds raised by the committee for carrying on genealogical research in England, but, was also always warmly appreciative of the results secured and published in the Register. After holding membership in the Society for forty years, he was elected, at the annual meeting in February 1920, a councillor for a three-year term, only one year of which he had served at the time of his decease. During his later life he was a frequent visitor to the library of the Society and to the Boston Athenaeum, for the purpose of pursuing his favorite genealogical researches.

    In 1874 Mr. Stone established his home in Cambridge, where he resided the rest of his life, and in later years he also had a summer house on Fisher's Island, in Long Island Sound. He travelled extensively in North and South America, and several times made extended trips to Europe, where the family lived at one time for three years while his children were being educated there.

    He was a member of the Somerset Club of Boston, the Oakley Country Club, the New England Kennel Club, and the Cambridge Boat Club. He also held membership in the Cambridge Historical Society, the Boston Athenaeum, the Bostonian Society, the Bibliophile Society of Boston, the Society of Colonial Wars in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Society of Sons of the Revolution.

    The finest qualities of our ancient New England stock came to their fairest fruition in the character and personality of Mr. Stone. His innate refinement, cultured mind, and delicate modesty were always apparent; his courteous, genial, engaging manner and frank, sincere cordiality ever gladdened the circles in which he moved; his gentle, serene disposition, sympathetic kindness, warmth of heart, and liberal generosity endeared him to all his relatives and friends; and his unswerving integrity, sound judgment, and intellectual abilities secured for him the respect and esteem of the community. Favored with a tall figure, fine physique, and handsome countenance, he had a distinguished bearing and appearance. Remarkably fine health and unimpaired keenness of mind enabled him to enjoy life with full zest to advanced age, until finally stricken with illness a few months before his decease in his seventy-sixth year.

    He married at Cambridge, 22 June 1871, Katherine M. Fay, daughter of Rev. Dr. Charles and Charlotte E. (Hopkins) Fay. She survives him, together with their three daughters, Mrs. Arthur Loring Jackson (Pauline Fay Stone) of Cambridge, Mrs. Austin Tappan Wright (Margaret Garrad Stone) of Berkeley, Calif., and Amy Fay Stone of New York City. Their only son, Reginald Stone, died in 1892, in his fifteenth year.

    William married Katherine Maria Fay on 22 Jun 1871 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts. Katherine (daughter of Rev. Charles Fay and Charlotte Emily Hopkins) was born on 6 Jul 1847 in New Orleans, Jefferson, Louisiana; died on 29 May 1928 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
