- It was Darcy's Stone tree that really got things started for me in 2003. Darcy has so much information on the Stone family that for a while it was all I could do to keep up with him just typing it in! On several occasions he has sent back corrected copies of my entires, adding greatly to the accuracy. He is an avid communicator, with reams of information arriving on a regular baisis via his secretary Deb Prosser. From Darcy's research we learned about the connection to Laurence Stone in Ireland -- our oldest known Stone ancestor.
