Rebecca Stone left North Carolina with her family to move to Henry Co., Missouri where she met and married Joseph Garrett. She was a teacher and among the three Rs, she taught her children to believe they were better than their father and the Stones were too good for the Garretts. She finally convinces her husband to sell the farm and move to the Town of Calhoun, [Henry Co.] Missouri just north of Lewis, [Henry Co.] Missouri.
