On February 14, 1778, being then at least 18 years of age and before the "Worshipful Richard Barnes" he swore allegiance to the State of Maryland in Charles County. Later he settled with his parents in Stafford County, Virginia, where in 1783, according to the tax list, he maintained one dwelling and two out houses on his estate and had four whites in his immediate household.

      One son--Alexander Smith Hawkins Stone--has been established or inferred. On May 7, 1813, Richard Marshall Scott, of Bush Hill, Fairfax County, Virginia, deeded to Alexander S. H.

      A sale of the personal estate of Alexander S. H. Stone occurred in Stafford County on December 3, 1823, with John C. Erington as the administrator. Among the purchasers were Barton S. Stone and William H. Stone.
