Stephen Day
Birth: Sep. 25, 1815
Honesdale
Wayne County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 2, 1892
Brinkhaven
Knox County
Ohio, USA

Stephen was the son of Elias (1792-1873) and Abigail (___) (1794-1891) Day. He married Mary Draper May 24, 1836 in Brinkhaven, Knox Co., Ohio and had seven children, Elias Edward (Edwin) Day, Harriett Day, Rebecca Jane Day, Mary Frances Day, Henrietta Day, Dommoris Day, and Lewis F. Day.
He came to Ohio with his Father when he was a young "lad" and settled on a Farm about 2 miles south of what was then called Mt. Holly, now Brinkhaven. His Obituary describes him "as a man he was full of life and activity, and of a very jovial and pleasant disposition and as a husband, most kind and dutiful." He was a Farmer and a Merchant, owning a Dry Goods and Grocery Store in Tiverton Center, Coshocton Co., Ohio. He helped organize and build "The United Brethren" church in Union Township in 1864. His Obituary goes on to say "As a Christian he was sincere and devotedů As a friend he was reliable and strong, and to be depended upon in times of need."
