Researching William STEPHENS, Jr. ("Rev.") born abt. 1778 Henry Co., VA, married Nancy WILSON and possibly Rhoda HOPPER. He was the son of William STEPHENS, Sr. [ 1745 VA - 1829 Russell Co., KY] and Susannah "Anna" FOX [? - after Jan 1829 KY?]. Nancy WILSON the dau. of Thomas WILSON and Mary ____ of Henry Co., VA. [her brother, Rice WILSON, b. abt. 1795 said to have m. Millie STEPHENS, other brothers were Moses, Joseph, Thomas & James]

William STEPHENS, Jr. and his family moved from Russell Co., KY to Warrick Co., IN before 1832. Their known children were; Josiah, m. Sarah WILSON - Behome - Jackson - Lucy, m. Boyd SMITH - Rhoda - Lucinda, m. "FERNAMAN" - Nancy, m. "FERNAMAN" - Joshua, b. 5 May 1801, m. Mary Ann "Polly" BARROW [1806 KY - ?] had 13 children - William An, b. abt. 1803, m. Catherine GOSSER, died abt. 1860 Pike Co., IN, had 6 children - Thomas, b. abt. 1807 KY, m. Lucottia "Lucy" LIGON on 3 Aug 1830 Lincoln Co., MO, died 10 Jan 1866 Lincoln Co., MO, had 11(?) children in MO [was he first married in Warrick Co. ???, conflicting family stories, may have been in the carpentry trade in IN - from IN to MO in about 1828 with Stephen An STEPHENS, his uncle ?] - and Nathaniel, b. abt. 1819, m. Margaret ROY, had 9 children.

Does anyone recognize this STEPHENS family? When did William STEPHENS, Jr. die? And his wife? Looking for cemetery information, obit's available? Would very much like to learn more about the children of William... exchange information with descendants. Our line is through Thomas STEPHENS and Lucy LIGON.
