Stockdale is an unincorporated community in Paw Paw Township, Wabash County and Miami County, Indiana, United States.

History[edit]

Stockton was laid out in 1837 by Thomas Goudy. When the Eel River Railroad was built, it was extended to nearby Roann, but not to Stockton. This led to the decline of Stockton.[3]
