Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 12, 1863
Virginia, USA

Born c. 1841-42 (son or other relative of Orren Stone and Joanna Turner Stone?). Farmer, Peru, Massachusetts. Civil War veteran.

Enlisted as a Private on 21 July 1862 at the age of 21 (Newell P. Stone). Enlisted for three years in Company K, 34th Infantry Regiment Massachusetts on 31 Jul 1862. Died of disease with the same unit on 12 March 1863 at Fort Lyon, south of Alexandria, Virginia.

Buried in Turner Cemetery, Savoy per _Tombstone Inscriptions, Savoy, Massachusetts, 1800-1950_ compiled by Mr. and Mrs. Walter E. Corbin and Mr. R. R. Mason, Sr. (typescript held at the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield). A government veteran's gravemarker was applied for by a D.W. Whitney in 1879 for "Newil J. Stone," Private, Co. K, 34th Regt. Mass. Inf., died March 12th 1863, to be sent to the "Village Cemetery" (aka Windsor Hill Cemetery?) of Windsor, Berkshire Co., Mass. (Ancestry.com/NARA Pub. M1845). Are there tombstones for him in two cemeteries? If so, in which was he buried? Or were both tombstones just memorials and did his body remain in Virginia?
