I have wanted to reach out to other possible relatives for years so will do it now. I am the great (8 generations back) grandaughter of Peter Stephens starting back in the year 1767. He came over to the new colonies with Jost Hite and his family at that time and we have a book (Peter Stephens and Some of his Descendents) written by a cousin Dan Stephens in the 1930's. Dan was a senator from Nebraska at that time. The book is in all state capital libraries. My name is spelled Stevens now because my grandfather, Alexander Stevens, who was a strange fellow(minister and house-painter in Bloomington, Ind)decided to change the spelling to Stevens. My father William Frederick Stevens is in the Stephens book. This book contains family records down to my father's generation. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I know there are many, many of us out there. Would love to find as many as I can. I have my own copy of the book so have alot of info at my fingertips.
