Linda hammer...
relationship with the Stoneson side of your family only extended to Stone Stoneson through his mother Jóhanna who was my great-grandfather Kjartan Einarsson's half sister.
...What I had called  a mystery that I had wanted to solve when I knew that my Thorstein who was my grandfather's brother and the Thorstein whose family moved to the US  and changed their name to Stone (or actually Stoneson as I later found out) was not really a mystery - just a misunderstanding somewhere along the line with the change of names. Great uncle Thorstein changed his to Anderson and continued living in Victoria BC until his death in 1949

Johann SkuladottirChart
Roy dropped the ball in 2010 AND 2011 by forgetting to add the photo and chart to this family site or the chart to Ingjiborg Stoneson,
if you are related to Ingibjorg Einarsdottir, then you are related to Johanna.

Since the Clan pages are by Recent to Oldest, this photo is here due to connection of Einar Skeggjason.

Stoney Stoneson or officially known in Iceland as Þorsteinn Þórsteinsson, son of Þorsteinn Þórðarson, son of Þórður Þorsteinsson, and his wife Ingibjörg Einarsdóttir, daughter of Einar Skeggjason, who was the son of Skeggi Jónsson, whose ancestor was Skeggi Atlason, born 1620 in Iceland. Online has him as Stoney Stoneson, that is an ERROR. Taken me four years to get that straight.

This vintage photo verified against one Nelson Gerrard has in his collection of that area.
