Almira Stone
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 10, 1811
Windsor
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: 1870

Almira Stone was the youngest child of Simon Stone and Charlotte (Hall) Stone of Windsor, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts. Her father died when she was not yet 8 years old and her widowed mother and most of her older brothers and sisters not long afterwards relocated from Windsor to the town of Riga in Monroe County (western) New York, following in the wake of, and joined by, many of her mother's Hall relatives.

When her brother, Ward Stone, died in Riga in December 1829, he left Almira his silver watch and a portion of his property (she was 18 at that time).

On 1 May 1831 Almira underwent adult baptism at the Congregational church of Riga, along with her brother Philander and their cousins, Alvah and Chapin Hall. Almira and Philander were also admitted to membership with the Congregationalist society on that date. The following year (29 June 1832) she and Philander were dismissed by the Riga Church to transfer to the nearby Churchville one.

It seems she never married, but spent her years living in the Riga and Churchville area near her many cousins and siblings. She is buried in the family lot in Churchville with her brother, Philander, and his family.
