DESCENDANTS OF RICHARD ANDREW STOCKTON

I hope some day to add the ancestors of Richard Andrew Stockton. I believe them to be the family of Davis Stockton of Albemarle County, Virginia. My research indicates that Sue may also be a direct descendant of this family. That, of course, would make her a blood relative of my Stockton cousins. It's a small world.  I think that is kind of neat.

(2) on 23 May 1866 in Smith County, Texas, Elizabeth Ann Bickerstaff, b. 09 April 1836 in Mississippi, d. 29 March 1911 in Ozark, Franklin County, Arkansas; The Census on 23 July 1860 in Cherokee County, Texas (Beat 6) and 13 August 1870 in White Oak, Franklin County, Arkansas show the household of R.
