  • Note: Martha Stone Cobb Daniel wrote the following about Margaret Price Cobb and John Stuart Stone: "Margaret Cobb married John Stewart Stone, young, handsome attorney at law Church services must have been more of a social outlet than conscientious seriousness about their religion, as Little Auntie was known to have removed the hair pins from her hair and casually allow her beautiful, golden brown tresses to fall to her waist - I ask you, now, what red-blooded gentleman could take that treatment in Church?! Needless to say, romance was on its way in lieu of all other considerations. Once again the parents did not approve, so this was fast solved - Soon Little Auntie was returning to Aberdeen Seminary for Girls - Uncle John simply met the first stop her train made and off Margaret got - He returned her to her home, sternly faced her parents and announced they were to be married, simple method just pays to be firm with parents - She too received the gift of a piano - Little Auntie was truly a high-spirited female, and once raced a man through town and won the race hands down - Since she was on her side saddle, no unkind remarks were made, but only a few eyebrows were raised - The Stones moved to Birmingham where Uncle John opened a law firm which proved to be most successful. After moving to Birmingham, Little Auntie continued to ride, but was soon driving a car with the same ease as she had controlled her mount. Many prominent attorneys have told me of the true legal knowledge they gained from John Stone - Becoming Chief Counsel for L&N Railroad, he and Little Auntie traveled mostly by private car - He was truly a VIP and Little Auntie never lost her spirit as long as she lived - She was his greatest asset."
