Todd, My GGG Grandmother Sarah Rock came to Preble county OH in 1821 >after her father John Rock died in Cabaras county, SC. He and his brother >Robert had came to America from county Antrim, Ireland prior to the American >Revolution. John was born in 1737 and Sarah in 1791. She apparently had >relatives there and she was a Covenanter. She converted a young Quaker there >to the Covenanter faith and married him on June 14, 1825. He was a shoemaker by >the name of Thomas R. Stevenson who also owned and farmed some land in the >area. He was born in 1803 in either NJ or SC. I'm >particularly looking for any mention of Thomas or Sarah's family in the area. >They lived for several years in Preble county OH and then moved to Morning Sun, Iowa. They had >five children while living in Ohio and Thomas diedin 1854 at Morning Sun, IA >and his family there moved on to Clarinda, IAabout 1856. Most of them are >buried in the church cemetary there. Are there any lists of members of any of >these congregations still existing? Sarah Stevenson, William M. Stevenson, >and Robert Stevenson were charter members of the Clarinda, IA congregation. I >would appreciate any information that you can share. I have a lot of data on >this familys decendents but have no ancestors past John and Robert Rock. >Except perhaps John's wife Catherine McClellan who was supposidly related to >Maj. General George B. McClellan who was commander of the Army of the Potomic >at the start of the Civil war. Sarah Rock had the following siblings William, Mary, Robert, Jane (Tippin),Dolly (died at age of one in SC )and Catherine Rock who married a Daniel S. Wilson and had 8 children all born in Preble county. We may well be connected as your William Rock is probally a son of one Sarah's brother William or Robert. Also there is the possibility that he is a Grandson of her uncle Robert Rock. This looks like a good lead.Glen StevensonHolmen, WI.
