The oldest son of James and Sarah Stoneman was Joshua Stoneman who was born 1771 in Orange County North Carolina. He is believed to have studied medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and often witnessed wills and deeds. Dr. Joshua Stoneman died in 1840 in Grayson County, Virginia. He was married twice.

I transcribed the following many years ago. It was first written in 1919. This is in the Iowa Historical Society files, as well as the LDS files. It is the genealogy as written by one of Samuel Burcham & Emily Stoneman Burcham's daughters in Iowa. Emily Stoneman was the daughter of Dr. Joshua Stoneman. Samuel was the son of Burden Burcham, son of Levi & Nancy Denny Burcham. This has been around for many, many years and I've often thought that this is the document that some associated Levi Burcham's wife Nancy with having the maiden name Stoneman in error. I hope this helps someone.
