Stone, Sheffield F. 1858-1934 Morris Obituary

Sheffield Stone

Morris, Nov. 23---Sheffield F. Stone, 76, veteran hunter, and one of the most respected citizens of the town of Morris, died at the family home Thursday evening at 7:45 after many weeks of illness.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Dr. C. E. Vermilya, will be held at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be in the family plot at the Brick schoolhouse cemetery.

Addendum: His date of death was Nov. 22, 1934. If there is an obituary with more information, I don't have one in the Mary Boice Gale Collection. I do have more information on him since he was my Grandfather William E. Stone's half brother.

Sheffield Fordyce Stone was born March 15, 1858 at Burlington, NY to Isaac Aylesworth and Phebe (Talbot) Stone, the oldest son of their 5 sons. He was a direct descendent of Arthur Aylsworth as well as Simon Stone. He married Arabelle R. Haynes in 1890. According to the 1900 census, they had one child, but none were living.
In 1892 they were living in Otego, NY, but moved to Morris in 1902 and lived there the rest of their lives. He was a blacksmith much of his life. On the 1925 and 1930 census, his occupation was listed as a farmer.
