"Elijah, the tenth son (of Joshua Stephens and Elizabeth Dyer), married Martha Patterson, who died about the year 1811 bearing an infant daughter named Cynthia, who in after years married Joseph Morgan and became the mother of four sons and three daughters. Morgan died in 1858 and her three eldest sons died in the Civil War, viz; William Leander, James Madison and Washington Posey. Her eldest daughter was mysteriously murdered in the woods. Her youngest son married and died bearing 3 or 4 children. Her youngest daughter married C. C. Lewis and has several children."
