Stone Bible

I've "rescued" an old 1849 Bible which originally belonged to the STONE Family of Wisconsin.

STONE Family Bible
Published 1849, New York, by the American Bible Society

Based on limited research I was able to find James Blinn STONE b. 11 March 1829 at Oshkosh, WI. James married Eliza Jane DANFORTH b. 7 June 1833, the daughter of Simon DANFORTH and Mary BISHOP. The couple was living in Oshkosh, WI during the 1880 census along with two daughters, Mary age 16 and Gertrude age 2. James R. was 51 years old, born in VT with both of his parents also VT born. Eliza J. was age 46, born in NY with her parents born in NY and CT respectively, both children were born in WI. Gertrude Alice STONE was born 18 June 1878 in Oshkosh, WI.

Harry HOBBINS and his wife Kittie Louise were living in Madison, WI listing her name as Louise during the 1880 census. Harry was listed as 26 years old, an insurance agent born in England and Louise age 22 with parents born in WI and NY respectively. I also believe that Charles SANBORN who married Gertrude Alice STONE was probably Charles SANBORN son of Silas & Emily SANBORN who were living in Madison, WI during the 1880 census. Silas was age 39, NY born and Emily age 35, VT born. Charles was said to be 9 years of age, born in WI. Their son Henry SANBORN b. 1 Sept 1902, died 17 Jan 1992.

I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact me.
