It is always exciting to here from new cousins!Here is some of the info that I have on Zachariah and Nancy:
Zachariah D. Stephensborn 1838 to Zachariah Stephens and Tabitha Powell, Tuscaloosa County Alabama Nancy Ellen Mcvayborn 1838 in Madison Co Alabama (?) to Hugh Mcvay and Martha Ann McAdrory. Zachariah and Nancy married July 9 1857
Children: 1. Javan Stephens b April 1858Itawamba Co. Miss. d 1918 Sherman, Grayson CountyTexas married Susan Josephine Fason(my line) 2. Hugh Z.b 1860 Itawamba married Bell Durrett 3. John M.b 1862 4. James R. b 1867 5. Marion E. b 1869 6. Mattie R. b 1872married Jesse Smith 7. Mary (Mollie) A. b 1875 8. Elizabeth (Lizzie) b 1877
Seems that all the children were born in Mississippi?
Which line is yours? Have loads of stuff on Zach Sr'sbrothers and sisters as well as the Powell family.How does this info fit with yours?I am also trying to get a direct line on Nancy Ellen which I have found hard to do with all of the Hugh Mcvay's
