I was delighted to read the piece on my namesake (not a direct descendent; my ancestor, through both parents, was his aunt), but you missed what was, most likely, his most important  role in history: Stockton was a direct link from the liberties Penn granted to his colony, through his law clerk, James Madison 1771, to the Bill of Rights. Stockton was a Quaker, as am I.
