      "Spencer Stone, the son of Thomas Stone and Mary Butler, was born on 3 June 1755 in Prince William County, Virginia. In about 1777/1778, Spencer is believed to have been married in Culpeper County, Virginia to his first wife, Nancy "Sally" Smith. Sally was the daughter of Thomas Smith of Ireland, and his wife, Mary Jackman. "Sally" Smith was also a native of Virginia, having been born in Fauquier County on 9 September 1757.

      Spencer Stone was found on page two of the 1778 List of Tithes taken by William Pickett for the Lower District of Leeds Parish, residing next door to his father, Thomas Stone, Sr., and his brother Thomas Stone, Jr. During the Revolutionary War, Spencer Stone served as a Private in Captain Samuel Scott's Company of the Lincoln County, Virginia Militia (Lincoln County is now part of Kentucky), and for his service he received a land grant from Patrick Henry, the Governor of Virginia. Although this land grant, which consisted of 100 acres of land along the Dix River in Lincoln County, Kentucky, was authorized on 28 June 1780, it was not surveyed until 24 April 1783.

      According to the Lincoln County Court records, Spencer petitioned the Court on 15 October 1805 for permission to construct a water grist mill on this property. The Court ordered the Sheriff to visit the site and ascertain if the construction would cause any damages. On 11 November 1805, the Sheriff reported that he did not feel any damages would occur, and Spencer was allowed to build his grist mill. Spencer and Sally resided in Lincoln County, Kentucky for more than thirty years prior to Sally’s death on 3 January 1813. She was the mother of nine children with Spencer, all of which having been born in Lincoln County except for their first child, John Thomas Stone.

      After the death of his first wife, Spencer Stone remained in Lincoln County for several years. In the fall of 1815, however, he moved to Scott County, Kentucky where his son, Elias Barbee, had settled sometime earlier. According to the records of the Dry Run Baptist Church in Scott County, Spencer Stone was admitted into membership there on the third Saturday in December 1815, and remained with that church until October of 1817. During the following year, 1818, Spencer moved back to Lincoln County, where he remained until his death.

      Shortly before leaving Scott County, however, Spencer married for a second time to Anna (Christy) Lindsay, the daughter of Julius Christy and Agatha Barnett, and the widow of John Valentine Lindsay. Anna (Christy) Lindsay was the mother of Catherine Houston Lindsay who had married Spencer's son, Elias, in Scott County in about 1814. There were no issue from Spencer's second marriage.

      Although some of Spencer's children eventually moved to Indiana and other parts of Kentucky, he and his wife remained in Lincoln County. Spencer Stone subsequently died on 1 January 1838 in that part of Lincoln County that was later made a part of Boyle County in 1842. Shortly after Spencer passed away, Anna moved to Fayette County, Indiana to be closer to some of her children from her previous marriage to John Lindsay. It is believed that she died there in about 1844."
