This is a compilation of family notes on the Genealogy of "The Family of Cephus French Stone and Eliza Jane Fowler Stone", who lived in Carroll and Wythe counties of southwestern Virginia during the late 1800's. Cephus and Eliza had ten children, who gave them sixty grandchildren. The book traces ancestry lineage back to the birth of Christopher Hurste, who was born in Buckinghamshire, England, in 1525, and connects it to the thousands of living members of the family alive today who can claim to be direct descendants of Cephus & Eliza Stone. This edition provides newly added information to help understand how our family participated as the European explorers populated the New World. There is a new section in this edition showing cemetery locations where our relatives have been laid to rest.
