Re: Jayvan Stephens Mantachie, Itawamba County Miss.
I am connected to the Stephens families of Itawamba Co. MS.
Several of my Morses maried members of the Stephens family.
Many settled in Itawamba Co. Others settled in Hunt Co. TX and Claiborne Parish, LA. and other places.
I have a copy of a cemetery book of Itawamba Co. MS. with many cemeteries listed.
One is the Stephens cemetery. I'll mention a couple of the earlier ones. The first Stephens buried there was, J. R. Stephens with these dates:12/12/1828-7/28/1854.
Asso, there is a Zachariah Stephens 1/8/1787-10/2/1881
and his wife, Tabitha Stephens 1/14/1799-8/8/1872
There are many Stephens buried there along with connectedfamilies.
I'll be gald to look up any name if you will contact me.
