About Hannah Stone

Hugh's origins are as yet unknown, yet recent research points to a strong possibility he hails from Somerset/ Devonshire area. His probable connection to the Beverly, MA Stone line (see discussion below) offers a possible clue. Also, his in-laws (Andrew and Ann Foster) arrived in Gloucester, Essex County, MA in 1636 (Pope's Pioneers). At about the same time a John Stone lived in Gloucester. It is possible this John was Hugh's father or a brother and also frequently assumed to be John Stone, later of Beverly/Salem. Investigation continues.
