Linda, we are working with several different people with the same names, thus some confusion, at least on my end.
For Example:You have Elijah as born 1864 however there was also an Elijah that was listed in the 1850 Switzerland County as 7 years old thus born abt 1843.

1 Male 16 + 1 Male Under 16 2 Females 0All Other Persons 0Slaves
This would make him born at least before 1774.

This would make Stephen born about 1813, sorry my notes show which state he was born in. I have another note that shows his birth as Jan 1812 in Chestnut Mound, Smith County, Tennessee Also show him married to Polly C. (Mary) Horton (This would match with the above 1860 census)
Children: Mahala 1842 Harriet 1847 George 1849 Martha 1854 Sarah 1855 Asa 1859 Elizabeth 1861 Elijah 1864 Lucy 1865 Mary Susan 1867 Margaret M 1868 Frank 1869
