William B. Stockton
Mother Belle and Sons
Note On Locations and Occupations:

In 1896 (July), the family lived in or near Bryson City, Swain County, NC. (NC Birth Index for Bass Lee Stockton)

In 1900, William and Belle lived, with sons Edgar, Grady, and Bass, in Ivy Township, Precinct 1, north Buncombe County, NC, and
William was farming their own farm, with no mortgage.

In 1910 (April), the family, then complete, lived in Malott, WA. The census indicates that all the children older than Vernie were born in
North Carolina, so they probably moved from NC late in 1908. William's occupation was millwright in a sawmill, and Edgar and Grady
were working in a sawmill also. Bass was a waiter in a hotel.

In 1920, the family was in Copeland, Boundary County, ID. Edgar, Bass, Boyd, Glen, and Vernie were still at home. William's occupation
is listed as farm laborer; likewise for Edgar and Bass. Grady, 25, was living five houses away with wife May, 22, (born in Scotland,
mother tongue French), and their daughter Jeannette; his occupation was steam engineer in a sawmill.

In 1930, Belle was a widow, living with son Boyd, in that same town, Copeland, ID. Belle's occupation was "Farmer" on a "truck farm"
(growing fruits and/or vegetables for market?); Boyd was a "farm helper".

In summer 1959, Bass and Corinne (Panchot) Stockton traveled from their home in California with their son Jay to visit Bass's Aunt
Sophronia Stockton Hughey in north Buncombe County, NC, at the old Stockton homeplace.
