Stephen was born 27 July 1756 (based on his Bible record, though the month is uncertain), the son of Francis Blackwell and Elizabeth Cornell. Presumably, he was born in Hopewell Twp., old Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co., NJ, where his parents lived.

He served in Carle's Troop of Light Horse, in the Hunterdon Militia during the Revolutionary War; he later became a captain in the militia. He was co-executor of his father's estate in 1791. He purchased 260 acres, 1792. He was taxed in Hopewell Twp., 1780/85, and documented there 1801 (listed as a farmer) until his death. He was a constable, overseer of roads, etc.

Stephen died in Hopewell Twp., old Hunterdon Co. His death is reported as 3 Dec. 1831 by local historian Ralph Ege in Pioneers of Old Hopewell
