Re: Stephen Mahaffey b. 1794
I can only say that the Martha buried in Iowa on Find a grave says Gonsaulus as part of the listing. I don't know how they got that information as it is not on the stone. Stephen and Martha also show in the 1850 census for Henry, Co Iowa with children; Ester, Rachel and Job. Ester is married to Theodore Coulter and is buried with them in Ebenezer Cemetery. So don't think this is the same family as in Illinois. The Mahaffey's seem to use the same names over and over each generation so it makes things difficult. Let me know if you figure it out.
