  • Notes 
    • Robert Nelson Stockton , who married Mary Jane Baldwin, was a son of William and Sarah (nee Marrs) Stockton, and a grandson of Thomas and Mary (nee Golden) Stockton, Sr. In about 1795 Thomas Stockton, Sr., became the first settler of what is now Clinton County, Kentucky, and Stockton's Valley is named after him.

      Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi Goodspeed Publishing Company, 1891 Volume II pp. 845-846

      Robert N. [Nelson] Stockton, of Smithville, P. O., Monroe county, was born in Madison County, Ala, February, 1814. His parents are William and Sarah Marez [Marrs] Stockton. William Stockton was reared in Stockton valley, in east Tennessee, a tract of land deriving its name from that of his family, and was a farmer and merchant all his life. His wife was a native of Logan county, Ky. Both were members of the Cumberland Presbyterian church. Mr. Stockton, who saw service in the Creek Indian war, came to Mississippi in 1830, and moved on the farm where his son Robert now lives, in 1831, where he died July 27, 1833. He was a prominent Mason. His widow married Rev. Mr. Weaver, and died in 1878. Robert N. Stockton's early life was spent in farming, a practical preparation for the planter's life which he has ever led since he was sixteen years and four months of age. He has held the office of supervisor and was bailiff for fourteen years. During the late war he was a member of company B, of the Third Mississippi battalion, under command of Lieutenant Bergin. He was in the service one year and was discharged on account of sickness. He is a prominent Mason, and member of the Blue lodge No. 165, of Amory. He is one of the most successful farmers in the county, and owns about nine hundred acres of well improved land, all in one body. He was married December 31, 1844, to Mary J. Baldwin, and they have had thirteen children, names as follow: Sarah S., Affiencia A. Robert C., Josephine, Amelia, Silas G., William L, Nancy M., Mary V., Nathaniel M., Fannie E, Jane V. and John C. B. who died December, 1878, aged twenty-two years. Mr. Stockton has led an honorable, upright life and has been more than successful financially, and the same may be said of his sons who are old enough to take active part in the duties of life. He is passing his declining years in the quiet enjoyment of the fruits of his industry, held in high esteem by this large circle of friends, an!
      d loved and honored by his family.
