Surname Saturday ~ STONE of Beverly, Massachusetts
John Stone (about 1595 – about 1670) arrived in Massachusetts
in 1635 on board the ship Elizabeth, with his two sons by his first wife, and with
his second wife and her four Haskell children (including William Haskell (1618 –
1693) my 9th great grandfather in another lineage). They settled in Beverly, near the head of
the Bass River near the present day Cummings Center (formerly the United States
Shoe Machinery Company).
John Stone ran the ferry across the Bass River from Beverly
to Salem until 1639. He removed to
Beverly sometime before 1662, and was one of the founding members of the Beverly
church in 1667. His son, Nathaniel
(about 1632 – 1718), my 8th great grandfather, was a constable in
Salem in 1667 and was a freeman in 1668.
He died intestate in 1718. I descend from his two eldest sons, John (1661
– 1736) and Nathaniel (1663 – 1741)- my 7th great grandfathers (see
