William Stone was born in 1700 in Woodbridge, Middlesex County, New Jersey to William Stone, Sr and wife Margaret Dix. He married Margaret (maiden name unknown) about 1727, presumably in Woodbridge. His children are all believed to be from his first marriage. Margaret died in 1737 at the age of 30. Tombstone read: "Here Lyes Ye Body of Margaret Stone Wife of William Stone Dec.d May Ye 8th, 1737. In Ye 30th year of her Age."

William and Margaret Stone's children:
Benjamin Stone
Robert Stone

William was a bachelor for many years until he married Lucy Walker on 1 April 1758 in Woodbridge. No known children of this marriage were recorded.

William Stone was said to be a private in the New Jersey Militia during the Revolutionary War. This would have been some feat, since at the beginnings of the hostilities he was in his seventies.
