Stanley William Stone (b. 7 Jan 1903), the tenth and penultimate child of Frederick James Stone and Loveday Jane Land, is listed on the 1939 Register, by which time he had already been widowed. Living with him at that time, at Foxdon Cottage, South Molton, were an Emily A Crook (b. 1894) - Stanley's elder brother, Frederick James Stone, was married to a Jessie Ann Crook, so family perhaps? - and son, Leslie Walter Stone (b. 17 Mar 1928). On the birth registration for Leslie, the mother's maiden name was listed as Skinner. 

However, there was no record of a marriage of a Stone and a Skinner. 

Eventually, I found Stanley W Stone's marriage to Evelyn A Robjohns, in South Molton, in the first quarter of 1926. Born Eveline Ann Skinner in 1896, she was the daughter of James Henry Skinner and Sarah Jane Cockram and, in 1901, had lived with her family at Backston Cottage, Rackenford and 1911 in East Anstey. Evelyn A Skinner had married George Henry Robjohns (b. 1897), in Tiverton, in 1920, however, he had died in 1925, aged only 28. (The couple had a son, George Henry Robjohns, b. 10 Oct 1920, who died, in Tiverton, in 2003.)

Then Evelyn A Stone died in 1935, aged just 38.

Stanley William Stone died in 1947, aged only 44.

Leslie Walter Stone married in 1949 and died, on 10 Apr 2008, in Sidmouth.
