STOCKWELL, Joseph
STOCKWELL, John

20 Oct 1824 Samuel STOCKWELL of Boon Co., Ky., obtained a patent for 80 acres of land in Rush Co., IN., Township 14-N, Cert. 5195 (Source: BLM Land Patent Database) extracted by Sue Elfving.

SE Notes:Could this Joseph STOCKWELL be the same who, styled as being of Boon [sic] Co., Ky., patented land in 1838 in Ripley Co., IN? In 1825 in Ripley Co., IN., Job Combs (brother to Michael Combs) married Henrietta WILLIAMS.

Could this Samuel STOCKWELL be related to the Mary Ann STOCKWILL who married Job Combs (or Coons) in 1823? Is he the same who, still styled as being of Boone Co., Ky., obtained a second patent for land in Clay Co., IN., in the same township (12-N) in 1841 as did Samuel Combs who is believed to be the same as Samuel Stockwell Combs. (BLM record: Samuel STOCKWELL of Boon Co., Ky., 5/25/1841, 80 acres, Clay Co., IN., Township 12-N, Cert. 28767).

SE Note: Possibly the Joseph STOCKWELL that appears on the marriage record for one Mary Ann STOCKWILL that married Job Combs (or Coons) in 1823. It is not yet known (more research required) if this STOCKWELL family is related to a Samuel Stockwell Combs (b. Ky.) who married Mary PINKLEY, who patented land in 1841 in Clay Co., IN., who removed to Delaware Co., IA by 1860, and who had sons named Andrew J., James Wilson, and Job Combs. Samuel's ancestry is unknown at this time. Nor is it known whether this Samuel S. Combs is somehow related to the brothers Job and Michael Combs of Ripley, Montgomery, and Clay Cos., IN., reputedly the sons of an older Job Combs and his wife Abigail Coons. Of further interest is that the STOCKWELL family is found in the same Indiana counties where Job and Michael Combs and Samuel Combs are found. Joseph STOCKWELL of Boone Co., Ky. patented land in Ripley Co., IN where Job Combs married Henrietta WILLIAMS in 1825. Samuel STOCKWELL of Boone Co., Ky. patented land first in Rush Co., In., and then in Clay Co., IN. in 1841, the same year as did Samuel Combs. Michael STOCKWELL of Putnam Co., IN., patented land in 1829 in Montgomery Co., IN where brothers Job and Michael Combs lived before removing to Clay Co., IN where Samuel STOCKWELL and Samuel Combs patented land in 1841. Another interesting fact (possible coincidence?) is that the brother Job Combs and his wife Henrietta WILLIAMS were the heirs of one Nathan WILLIAMS (interest in land in Montgomery Co., Ky.) and there was a Nathan H. STOCKWELL who patented land in Carroll Co., IN.
