Bio and Links
Bio Photo Adding memorials is a great way to honor your family & get to know them better. My main goal is adding everyone buried in Lincoln County, WY & Harrison County, IN. Next projects will be Jasper County, MO & Bourbon County, KY & always adding my LOOMIS family from Essex, ENG, Tolland, CT & Grant County, KY & Pendleton County, KY. Probably, my most active line is the LONG line of Boone County, AR, Sevier County, TN & Ottawa County, OK. Spending time with friends & family on FindaGrave is very relaxing.

CARLTON stop trying to change history to be something you read online. Most of us know that database is made up of old ancestry trees that we all submitted the first year that ancestry dot com was formed. Other unreliable databases are Select Marriages and Millennia File...and two databases on the LDS site.

You are obvious from the internet troll group. Same false claims and same failure to show anyone proof. You should pay attention to why Daniel Bly told you about PROOF and stop making false claims.

Historian and author Daniel Bly wrote:
"NONE of us who have been working on the Peter Stephens family tree for more than 25 years will ever accept anything that contradicts or is inconsistent with the information we already have unless it is backed up by photocopies of actual documents or written transcript certified as accurately copied from the original. By certified it means checked by an acknowledged genealogist, historian or specialist who is not related to the people who own the documents."

Carlton aka Brad you disgust me

Ridiculous. You say don't bring Bly and Love into it? They are the two most prominent historians of the subject of Stephens and Rittenhouse!!!

I give Daniel Bly and Linton E Love's publications as my main sources for both the Stephens and Rittenhouse families. That is the proof.

If you read them, and had respect for them, then you would know that Maria Christina is not who you say she is. It's that simple. That is where the proof is!

Peter Stephens and Maria Christina gave birth to their first 3 children in Germany...that is the proof...two of those 3 children state they were born in Germany in their Naturalization papers. That is proof.

Hundreds of documents we all gathered for the "file cabinet" of the Stephens Forum on, hosted by Jarie Slack.

The Newtown Historical Society pays tribute to the German settlers including my ancestral names of Chrisman, Hite and Stephens. Proof is abundant and available for anyone who takes the time to read it.

I have researched since before 1997. Thanks to the availability to documents on the internet, I've added my finds to the other documents on these families. That is proof.

Now, IT IS YOUR TURN. Tell us your proof.

WE ARE WAITING. Otherwise stop wasting our time.

Deborah Wood, Please read my reply to you on Cassie Hill. since you disable your messages.

Don't included Daniel Bly and Linton E. Love in your drama. have respect for them and their work.

It alright if you closed the case, it shows you are wrong.

Do me a favor, stop put messages on other members pages, there is no reason for that. I have my own page for messages.

Real documents?
Great what is it?

I sure hope you aren't saying that Daniel Bly, Linton E Love and I used are not real. It's as simple as telling us and showing us what you have.

We have shown you our proof. You have shown us NOTHING. You keep saying you have documents- what are us one...tell us about one.

Carlton, I have no interest in what you are made of...OMG...I could care less. But I will not stand for anyone trying to make changes and showing no reason for it...not one.

Daniel Bly and I have told you how we know that Peter Stephens wife was born in Germany and was NOT a daughter of Nicholas DeWeese. If you have something to the have our attention it to us...tell us about it.

Otherwise, cased closed as far as I'm concerned.

Carol , Deborah again disable her messages.

Deborah , if yours a FACT and not an opinion, so is mine then.

Some of the fact on line has been changed.
There are real documents stating that Nicholas Rittenhouse and Wilhelmina Dewees and their children. There is a document stating that Maria Rittenhouse married to Peter Stephens,

Deborah, how can I reply to you when you DISABLE your messages? What is the reason for that?

For Carlton .....
...and any other interested researcher...

Carlton, mine is fact, yours is opinion....why on earth do you think she was a daughter of Nicholas Rittenhouse? Based on what? Give us one reason and now...

Mine is fact - NOT opinion !
Further proof of the children of Nicholas Rittenhouse and Wilhelmina DeWees is found in both of their Last Wills, easily found online. From both documents one can see that they had no daughter named Maria Christina who was married to Peter Stephens:

Philadelphia Cou WBE page 280, dated 4 May 1734
Children: William, Seikie, Catherine, Mary, Henry, Matthais, Susanna.
Note that there is no daughter named Maria Christina Rittenhouse here.

1737 WILL OF WILHELMINA DEWEES, a translation from Pennsylvania German by D. K. Cassel (page 74) of the will of Wilhelmina DeWees, the wife of Claus Rittinghausen, dated 6 March 1737
Note: Same children are included, plus grandchildren.
Again no daughter named Maria Christina Rittenhouse.

LAST WILL OF PETER STEPHENS, SR: Peter's will has been added to his memorial #167660501. Henry was their youngest child (see above discussion of Find A Grave memorials in addition to these official names).
The children of Peter & Maria Christina Stephens were
1) Lewis aka Ludwig
2) Maria Christina
3) Lawrence
4) Magdalena
5) Margaret
6) Peter
7) Henry
