Mystery: This photo was in the Aunt Nancy Stone album. On the back "CLAFLIN'S 229 PHOTOGRAPHIC GALLERY, Main Street, Worcester, Mass."
Other Stone names in the album without the photo include Stacy Stone, Alvah Stone, Gardner? Stone. There are no other surnames included in the album. The majority of the Carte de Viste photos are made in the Massachusetts area, mainly from Worcester, MA. Others are from Boston and NY. I am searching for any connection to my Great Grandfather, George Edward Stone b. in Rome GA mid 1800s, married Nancy Rebecca Wells of GA. They lived in Atlanta and the gravesite of George Edward is said to be somewhere on the east side of Stone Mountain, GA. Nancy remarried and moved to AL with her children, Tom, Ed (my Grandfather), Zeke, Effie and Dera. Can anyone help me identity this photo or provide any information to help in my search for my Stone ancestors or the location of the cemetery east of Stone Mountain GA?
Heather Clark Worchester was a small community in those days, with a lot of Irish immigrants, the census might tell you if there was a large Stone family contingent. However, the Wells family was quite well represented in Mass (and all New England), from the beginning of the US.
