Frederick James Stone, fifth child and eldest son of Frederick James Stone and Loveday Jane Land, married Jessie Ann Crook, daughter of Samuel Crook and Elizabeth Hill of the village of Mariansleigh, near South Molton, in the 2nd quarter of 1926. Frederick, born 1888, will have been 38, while Jessie, born in 1900, was 26, but it seems to have been the first marriage for both of them. 

Frederick and Jessie appear to have had two children: 
  1. Alfred Stone born 30 Apr 1928, died Q3 2004
  2. Daughter born 1936, who may still be living.
Curiously, there are two entries on the 1939 Register for Frederick J Stone (b. 27 Mar 1888) and Jessie A Stone (b. 26 Sep 1900), one at West View, Bishops Lydeard and the other at C&B Cottage, Combe Florey, near Taunton, Somerset. My guess is they moved from one to the other close to the date that the register was prepared. On both, Frederick's employment is Farm Carter.

Frederick J Stone died in 1968, aged 79. Jessie Ann Stone in 1984.
