From Jedediah's Unpublished Diary
"My birth was on the Christian Sabbath, the 25th of March 1798 in the town of Hamilton, Madison County, State of New York. Was named Jedediah Dwight. Was baptized by the Elder Dr. Badger, father of Dr. Milton Badger, one of the first secretaries of the A.M.H.S. [American Home Missionary Society].

My father Deacon Jonathan Stevens was a native of Massachusetts, Town of Southwick, Berkshire County. My mother whose maiden name was Lucy Berry was a native of Meriden, Connecticut. They married in 1781 and lived together 53 years. They had 10 children, three sons and seven daughters."
