Yep.You mailed me photos of Julia Green and Daniel Henderson about a year ago. I'm descended through Julia's son Allison Woodville MILLER by her first husband Berry MILLER.Allison married Calvin and Margaret's daughter Sarah Jane "Sallie" STEPHENS in 1853 in Murray County, GA.Small world, isn't it?Here are my notes on Calvin, some of which were given to me by Mark STEPHENS: ----------- Calvin E. Stephens is listed in the 1850 Georgia Census as living in Stewart County (Lannahasse District) age 23 and married to Margaret F. (Beard) age 17 and lists his occupation as farmer.
C.E. Stephens on the 1860 Georgia Census is living in Sumter County age 33 - occupation Farm laborer - value of estate $210 - can read and write.Others listed are Margaret F. age 27, William John Thomas age 9, Rebecca N. age 6. Sara J. age 4 and Mary A. age 1.'.
Source Roster of Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865:
C.E. Stevens (Stephens) - Private July 1, 1862 transferred to company G, 8th Reg.. GA Cavalry July 11, 1864. Captured near Greenville, NC Feb.18, 1865.Imprisoned at military prison camp Hamilton, VA March 9,1865.Sent to point Lookout MD. March 24, 1865 and died of chronic diarrhea June 1, 1865 - Claimed residence in Spalding County GA.
You won't find Calvin E. in the 1870 census as he died on his way home from the Civil War. He actually lived through the war and then fell ill and died on his way home. ---------------------
And that's all I have on him.I'm still trying to track down the truth regarding this tragic fire sufffered by either the STEPHENS or the MILLERs or both.One story says that Allison was actually engaged to one of the older STEPHENS girls, but she caught her skirt on fire while washing clothes down by the creek and died.Allison then took up with Sarah.Another story says that Berry MILLER (Julia's first husband) died in the fire along with some of the STEPHENS family.Who knows if we will ever get to the truth?Anyway, looks like we have names for Margaret's parents and siblings.This takes us back beyond the time of useful census records (at least for listing family members), so any further digging will have to be in probate, land and tax records.Maybe a published history if we get lucky.
