Surnames: Stevens, Stephens, Cogdell, McCulley
William Stevens (Stephens) brought his wife and family to Fayette county, TN from NC in the early 1830s. They resided in District 8 for the remainder of their lives, William dying there about 1860 and his wife, referred to as “Silvy” in his will, gone before 1870.

Their son, John Haywood Stevens, born in NC about 1810, died about 1843 in Fayette county. He left a wife, Frances McCulley, and six children…Lewis Haywood, Jesse, Harriet, William David, John, and Thursday Rebecca.

Their younger son, Lewis Stevens, married his brother’s widow on 24 Jan 1844. He died about 1860 in Fayette county, TN. Frances, called Fannie or Fanny, died in 1880 of consumption. She and the children had remained in District 8 of Fayette county.

The children of Lewis and Fannie Stevens were Eliza, James, Nancy, Zilpha, Robert and Julius.

Any additional information on this family would be greatly appreciated. I’m especially hoping to find where William, Zilphia and their children were born/resided in North Carolina before settling in Tennessee and where they are buried in Tennessee.

Thank you for any clues you can provide.
