About George B. Stone

Son of Barton W(arren) & Caroline (Walton) Stone (killed at 7 Pines, VA, during the Civil War; see a transcription of the receipt for this monument; George Barton Stone is actually buried here. The receipts were found in his estate papers. The Battle of Seven Pines (just east of Richmond, VA) was fought on May 31 - June 1, 1862 and he was wounded but did not die till June 9th. On this date a Mr. Satterwhite purchased for Barton Warren Stone a walnut coffin which he had lined with zinc and also purchased a box of packing (?). One receipt is to Mr. Satterwhite from C. D. Yale & Co. located in Richmond for lining the coffin with zinc. The other receipt for payment is for B.W. Stone from Satterwhite. By lining a coffin with zinc they would be able to ship a body back home. They would not have used the zinc if they were going to bury him in Virginia. )
