Interesting person/cousin in my files (from my Ralph Allen Book)

Richard Stockton was born in Princeton on November 8, 1791.

He studied law and practiced in New Jersey before moving to Mississippi, where he was made one of the judges of the State Supreme Court.

Became Attorney General.

Richard was killed in a duel with John P. Parson in New Orleans, Jefferson, Louisiana, on February 5,

A letter in his pocket stated his purpose not to fire.
