REMEMBER to SIGN Our GUEST BOOK This site is dedicated to the memories of William Nicholas Stone and Nancy Ellen Varvel. Although it began as a small way of passing on to our children their hard earned heritage, it is now gladly given to YOUR FAMILY. Our ancestors came from all over the world to a small corner of northwest Missouri. The effort for accuracy is non-ending and as genealogists if mistakes are found please contact Patricia Smith Moody at firstname.lastname@example.org We will continue tracking the family genealogy and breaking down brick walls. I am so grateful to all those who have proceeded me in finding out who they were as families and the things that brought alliances and new lines. Our STONES and ancestors made many transitions in their convictions. This started the movement of the Stones who became a moving force in spreading the word of the CHRISTIAN Church by establishing towns in TN, KY, IL, IA and MO and CA. Sometimes it was the METHODIST Church followed by the CHRISTIAN Church in an area but they seemed to go hand in hand as they traversed and settled our NATION. It was their FAITH that brought us from there to here and united them in their efforts to settle this land for us. Many "earned" their land via their MILITARY SERVICE which allowed expansion westward. They survived the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, as families who served on BOTH sides and learned to somehow "mend"/"accept" and bring our families forward. ALL who would like to join our effort with history, photos or stories are welcome. Many have given me information to this project but I owe special THANKS to MARY FINCH SMITH, JACK MacDONALD, DAN HAYES and to GAIL MARTIN. We are the STORY TELLERS of our family history.
