    • !SOURCE: J. Gardner Bartlett, Simon Stone Genealogy: Ancestry and Descendants of Deacon Simon Stone of Watertown, Mass., 1320-1926 (Boston: Stone Family Association, 1926), pp. 52-56:
      Dea. Simon Stone ..., born in Boxted, co. Essex, England about 1630, was brought to New England by his parents in 1635. He was brought up as a farmer on the paternal homestead at Mount Auburn in Watertown, Mass., to which he succeeded on his father's death in 1665... [He] married about 1655, Mary Whipple, born in Bocking, co. Essex, England, about 1634, daughter of Elder John and Susanna (--------) Whipple, and when a child brought to New England, by her parents. Her father, Elder John Whipple was baptized at Bocking, 29 Aug. 1596, son of Matthew and Joanna (--------) Whipple, was a clothier ... emigrated with his children to New England about 1638 and settled in Ipswich, Mass.


      !IMMIGRATION: Came from London in April 1635. _A Partial list of the Descendents of Matthew Whipple, the Elder, of Bocking Essex County, England_ / Compiled from Divers Sources by Henry Burdette Whipple (High Point, North Carolina, Oct. 1965), p. 8.

      !SOURCE: Mail from Dean Roe to the Whipple Web Site, October 1997: "He was brought up as a farmer on the parents' homestead at Mount Auburn in Watertown, Mass. (Now the site of the Auburn Cemetery near Harvard University). Upon his father's death, in 1665, he took over the Auburn Homestead. In 1662 he became proprietor of lands in Groton, Mass., totaling 88 acres, which were recorded 17 Feb 1670/1; these lands he eventually settled on his two eldest sons, Simon and John Stone, who located there. But Deacon Simon Stone always resided on the Auburn homestead in Watertown, and became more prominent in local public affairs than his father had been. From 1672 to 1679 (inclusive) he was elected a selectman; in 1672, 1673, 1676, 1677, 1679, 1681, 1682, 1684, 1687, and 1690, he was deputy for Watertown to Massachusetts General Court. In his later years he was a deacon of the Watertown Church. "During his lifetime, Deac. Simon Stone divided all his property, both real and personal, among his large family of children, giving the homestead at Mount Auburn to his youngest child, Ens. Jonathan Stone, and a hundred acre farm adjoining on the west to another son David Stone; so at his death he left no will and no administration was taken out of his estate. He had conveyed a farm (55 acres) to Simon Coolidge on 3 Feb 1668/9, in Wtertown (now Weston), late of the widow and heirs of Henry Greene, clerk, deceased. His farm was bounded east by Benjamin Wellington, south by Nathaniel Coolidge, west by Robert Jennison, and north by Samuel Hyde, Sen. (Middlesex County Deeds, vol. 3, fol. 336.)"

      !BURIAL: Simon Stone's tombstone in the Old Watertown Cemetery is inscribed as follows: "HERE LIES YE / BODY OF SIMON / STONE, DIED FEBRY / YE 27TH 1708 / AETALIS SUAE 77 / THE MEMORY OF" --Dean Roe.
