Stone, Barton Warren, 1772-1844, American clergyman of Kentucky. With four other ministers he withdrew from the Presbyterian Church and in 1804 began to form new churches whose members called themselves simply Christians. Through his acquaintance with Alexander Campbell he sought to merge (1832) the Christians with the Disciples of Christ.
