There are two classical Stone genealogy works:

1)   J. Gardner Bartlett,  Simon Stone Genealogy, Ancestry and Descendants of Simon Stone of Watertown, Mass. 1320-1926, published by the Stone Family Association in Boston, 1926. 

2)  David H. Brown, Dea. Simon Stone of Watertown, Mass., and Some of his Descendants, published in the New England Historic Genealogical Register, Volume 53, page 345, July 1899.

As you can see, I'm using my standardized place names in this series now.  It makes the post a bit longer, but more consistent.  Of course, "Massachusetts, USA" didn't exist as a state for much of the time period considered, but all of the towns mentioned did.  Purists can substitute "Massachusetts Bay Colony, North America"  if they wish!

I am wondering how you put your Surname post together - I assume from your genealogy program - but for the less techy of us (who would love to benefit from "learning to fish" from you for our blogs) could you walk us through how you do it. Many thanks and thanks also for such intersting and personal posts.
