      Thomas 4 Stockton, son of Jesse 3 and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton.

      Thomas 4 Stockton, a son of Jesse 3 and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton, appears to have been born on 4 June 1788. Thomas 4 Stockton was the only one of Jesse 3 Stockton's children that T.J. Stockton did not have an exact date of birth for in his book. T.J. Stockton's information that Thomas was born in 1795 appears to have been just an incorrect guess by T.J. Stockton. See below for both the 1850 census, Warren County, Illinois, and the Warren County, Illinois, cemetery records. Thomas 4 Stockton, son of Jesse 3 and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton, died 17 Jan 1853, age 64 years, 7 months, 13 days.

      ------------------------------------------------

      1782, the will of Thomas 2 Stockton of Albemarle County, Virginia, mentions son Jesse Stockton.

      Jesse 3 Stockton married Mary Hays in Albemarle County, Virginia.

      1788, Thomas 4, a son of Jesse 3 and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton, appears to have been born 4 June 1788 in Virginia. See 1850 census, Warren County, Illinois, Thomas Stockton, 62, born in Virginia, and see Warren County, Illinois, cemetery records.

      1790 Land Tax List, Albemarle County, Jesse Stockton is shown with 148 acres. Thomas 3 (Thomas 2, Davis 1) Stockton is shown with 152 acres. They are the only Stocktons on the Tax List.

      1790 census for North Carolina does not list a Jesse Stockton. In 1790 Jesse 3 Stockton, born 4 Sep 1755, would have been about 35 years old.

      1791 Land Tax List, Albemarle County, Jesse Stockton is shown with 148 acres. Thomas 3 (Thomas 2, Davis 1) Stockton is shown with 152 acres. Again, they are the only Stocktons on the list.

      1807, the will of Samuel 2 Stockton of Rutherford County, North Carolina, does NOT mention a son Jesse Stockton.

      1806, 1807, 1808, 1809, and 1810 Barren County, Kentucky, Poll Tax List, all show Jesse Stockton.

      LIFE SKETCHES AND REMINISCENCES OF T.J. STOCKTON, SR., 1898, page 155:
      "I will give the dates when my Grandfather Stockton was born and grandmother; Jesse Stockton was born Sept. 4, 1755; Mary his wife, born Dec. 25, 1761, my grandparents. Sophia, their eldest daughter, was my aunt, was born Dec. 12, 1790; John Stockton, born May 10, 1791; Rachel Stockton, my aunt, born May 10 1793; Thomas Stockton, my uncle, born 1795; James Stockton, my father, born Oct. 9, 1797; Polly Stockton, by aunt, born March 18, 1799; Jemima Stockton, my aunt, born March 15, 1801; Hannah Stockton, my aunt, born Feb. 9, 1809; Those above are my grand parents and their children, my uncles and aunts.

      The 1810 census of Barren County, Kentucky, shows Jesse 3 Stockton.
      [ALL INFORMATION IN BRACKETS HAS BEEN ADDED.]
      Jesse Stockton - 45+ [Jesse 3 Stockton, age about 55, born 4 Sep 1755, husband of Mary (nee Hays) Stockton]
      m - 16-26 [Thomas about 22, appears to have been born 4 June 1788 in Virginia, m. Elsie Johnson, moved to Warren Co., Illinois.]
      m - 16-26 [John about 19, born 10 May 1791, married Lucinda Mitchell in Woodford Co., KY in 1816]
      m - 10-16 [James about 13, born 9 Oct 1797, married Margaret Torbet, to Platte County, Missouri.]

      f - 0-10 [Hannah about 1, born 9 Feb 1809, married John O. Lattimore, lived near Vernon, Jennings Co., Indiana]

      This is an excellent match for what both DAVIS STOCKTON OF VIRGINIA and T.J. Stockton have for the family of Jesse 3 and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton. It does not appear that T.J. Stockton included any additional information about Thomas 4 Stockton besides his name and year of birth. The mother of Mary (nee Hays) Stockton was Sophia (nee Wood) Hays.

      20 Oct 1812 Sophia 4 Stockton, daughter of Jesse and Mary (nee Hays) Stockton, married William Evans in Barren County, Kentucky. Thomas Stockton, Jr., was the surety. He appears to be Thomas 3 (Thomas 2, Davis 1) Stockton, Jr.
