My grand parents where Elwin G Stevens and Harriet St John Stevens .They owned a boarding house or hotel in PA .As I recall my mother joked about my fathers checkered family history.When I was a boy of 12 my father took me to the Capital and put his hand on a bust of Thaddeus Stevens and very firmly and proudly said this is your great grand-father.You would have to have known my father to understand how out of character and unusual this boasting was.I have read the books on Thaddeus and his taking up with his freed slave woman.If you looked at a picture of Thaddeus and a picture of my father You would know they where related.Same hair, same noise, similar eyes, same ears.I am guessing but it seems to me that he may have had a child with another woman and allowed his name to be passed on.I am not going to be disappointed if it is not true.I am more curious why my father George Theodore Stevens b 1910 ?PA was so sure he was,but so far in my investigations I am fairly confident it will remain a mystery. I have not been able to track any info on my grand-father because I am limited to what I can do on the computer In the next few weeks I will post a picture of my father and Thaddeus side by side at about the same age and let you judge for yourself. Any info you may have will be greatly appreciated.Again Thanks Lee E. Stevens
