I have a copy of the listings of births, marriages, and deaths from the Stephens Family Bible. The first birth listed is Elijah Bluford Stephens, October 31, 1817. He, as well as many others, are buried in the Salem Baptist Church Cemetery in Bluffton, Cherokee Co., AL. At least one is buried in Rock Run. Will be hapy to share information with those interested. Also, some may be interested to know there will be a Stephens family reunion on August 7, 1999, at Chehea State Park. The family Bible no doubt will be on display at that time.

How are Pope's involved?

The following listings for "Pope" are in the Stephens Family Bible:

- W. B. Donaldson and Essie Mae Pope were married July 11th 1916
- Elva Pope Donaldson was born Sept. 5th, 1917
- James Harbin Pope and Cola Lucile Gray were married April 10, 1936
- Madolyn Louise Pope born Dec. 21, 1937

The way these fit into the Stephens line is:

Generation 1
Elijah Bluford Stephens (1817-1895)
m. Jane Barnett

Generation 2
Sarah Frances Grizel Stephens (1856-1898) (Buried at Salem Bapt in Bluffton, AL)
m. Henry Donaldson (Buried at Salem Bapt in Bluffton, AL)

Generation 3
William Bluford Donaldson (1876-1959)
m. Essie Mae Pope

Ida Ethel Donaldson (1885-?) (buried at Rock Run, AL)
m. James W. Gray

Generation 4
Cola Lucile Gray (1928- ) (currently lives in Anniston, AL)
m. James Harbin Pope (buried in Chattanooga, TN)

Generation 5
Madolyn Louise Pope (1937-abt 1996) (buried at Rock Run, AL)
m. Dan Hammonds
m. ? Sessums

I am not sure who Elva Pope Donaldson is, probable the daughter of William and Essie Mae Donaldson.

I was interested in what line of Stephens are recorded in your bible. I am descended from Jerry Stephens, born in Lancaster, SC in 1822. Died 1904 in Delta, AL in Clay Co. His children (that I know of) Perry (my link), Albert, Frank, Mae, and Margaret. I would like more info on the reunion if it's my line. Thanks.

Do you know who Annie Louise Baker parents are? My Grandmother was Sarah Margaret (Maggie) Baker and had a sister named Annie L. Baker.
