Surnames: Stockton, Hickey, O'Neal
The outlaws "Ike" and "Port" Stockton were sons of Samuel Stockton [Jr.] who appears to have been born c.1814 in White County, Tennessee. On 19 Aug 1843 Samuel Stockton [Jr.] married Jane Hickey in Itawamba County, Mississippi. In the 1850 census Samuel, Jane, and their family are shown living in Hopkins County, Texas.

Samuel Stockton [Jr.] (c.1814-c.1857) was the younger brother of William "Ole Ireland" Stockton (c.1812-1875) who also appears to have been born in White County, Tennessee. In about 1837 William Stockton married Merena O'Neal, probably in Tishomingo County, Mississippi. In the 1850 census William, Merena, and their family are shown living in Tishomingo County, Mississippi.

Although William and Samuel's father has long been a mystery, there is now excellent evidence that their father was Samuel Stockton [Sr.] (c.1787-c.1849) of White County, Tennessee, and later Tishomingo County, Mississippi. In 1840 Samuel Stockton [Sr.] (c.1787-c.1849) is shown living in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, as is his son William "Ole Ireland" Stockton (c.1812-1875). Samuel and William appear to be living near Goat Island on Yellow Creek in northeast Tishomingo County, Mississippi.

If anyone would like more information about Samuel Stockton [Sr.] (c.1787-c.1849), grandfather of the outlaws "Ike" and "Port" Stockton, just send me an e-mail and I will send you my paper that includes grant records, court records, tax records, census records, and more.
