W. A Stone was William A. Stone (middle name, Asahel) who enlisted for Civil War army service in Company F, 157th Regiment New York Infantry at Hamilton, New York(Madison County), August 26, 1862 as a 1st Lieutenant. He was appointed regimental adjutant January 26, 1863. He was discharged March 28, 1863. (His brother, James Riley Stone, served as Captain of Company F. Captured at the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863, he died as a prisoner of war at Macon, Georgia, August 12, 1864, and was buried at Andersonville National Cemetery, Georgia as an unknown soldier.) After the war he married Rose Dickey and had four children. In the 1870s he practiced law in Conestoga, New York. He and a friend with the last name of Woodruff, set a fire, which burned up part of the town. Whether intentionally or accidentally, comsumption of alcohol may have been a factor. William was tried, convicted, and sent to Auburn prison for a number of years until pardoned. It was after this that he apparently remarried and relocated in Cleveland. He applied for an invalid army pension September 19, 1890 in Ohio which was not issued. His widow, Margaret K. Stone, applied for widow's pension in Ohio but is was not issued. He was buried April 21, 1891 in a veterans plot in Section 72 in Woodland Cemetery set aside for indigent Civil War veterans. Residence: 142 Lyman. Cause of Death: Carcinoma. Nothing more can be found in local sources about William or Margaret.
