Since Ann STEPHENS was a widow by 1850, it is hard to tell who her hubby might be....too many in Monroe Co TN 1840.Some are still lvg 1850, so that leaves Wesley, Henry, Absalom, David, Jael/Joel, John, Michael, Richard, Sampson. I would guess either John or Richard.Ann's birth 1794-1800.If the earlier date is correct, she might not be Cleveland's mom, as she would've been abt 47/48, but not impossible.
If there were minor children in the household when the father died the courts usually appt a grdn for the family [women weren't capable of managing the home..LOL]. You might contact Monroe Co for a search.
