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.

Yes I am so distantly related that it hardly counts but I count them anyway. I love family. Glad to know you are mine.

Can't remember a post, refresh my memory, please.
Abraham Stevens abt 1745 d. 1826 KY was the father of Mary "Polly" Stevens 1782 VA d. 15 Mar 1852 Shelby Co KY. buried Long Run Church Cemetery, Jefferson Co KY. She married James Morris, Garrard Co. KY 3rd of July 1797. Abraham Stevens was named on the marriage record as her father.
I understand that Abraham was the son of John Stevens and Martha Cergeir d. Shelby Co KY 1813, who were married in
NY 1741. Some of the family of Abraham lived in Harrison Co IN.

Carlton, please understand, that when I could not find out who Maria Christina was before marriage to Peter Stephens, it was I, who stormed onto the Stephens forum, guns ablaze, not unlike yourself, demanding for someone to prove to me how they knew she was not the daughter of Nicholas Rittenhouse!! You can find my posts all over genforum and other places....making a big issue of it. And like an idiot, it was explained to me, but not to my satisfaction UNTIL....finally someone on the Stephens forum gave me the phone number and address of Larry Rittenhouse, then president of the Rittenhouse Society. We spoke by phone and he explained to me that he had copies of the marriage banns and marriage record of Maria Christina Rittenhouse, daughter of Nicholas Rittenhouse. He sent me copies of these. And I began spreading the all would know that theory was no longer valid.

The records sent to me showed the parents names of the marriage banns and the marriage record itself showed that their daughter, Maria Christina married Jan Casper Jansen...sometimes you will find his name as John Johnson, Casper Janse, etc. On the marriage record it is Jan Casper Jansen. The marriage date and their childrens' birth dates and their own death dates, making it impossible for Maria Christina Rittenhouse, daughter of Wilhelmina DeWees and Nicholas Rittenhouse of PA to have been married to anyone else. Maria died before Casper and they had several children.
I have posted all their information several time here and elsewhere. Anyone wishing to view the most accurate account of the Rittenhouse famiies can find the entirely of Linton E Love's work to download in pdf format.

So regardless of what else is on your mind. It is unreasonable to continue the erroneous idea that Peter Stephens wife was a daughter of Nicholas Rittenhouse. It only spreads the errors to those who are new at genealogy.

I have kept all these messages. Daniel Bly has told you that you are wrong about the Rittenhouse name, because I have proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt...STOP erasing messaged you get that prove you wrong...and then you wonder why I post to you on others' pages. We are sick and tired of you demeaning our beloved ancestors Peter and Maria Christina Stephens. Would you like for me to file a lawsuit to you for libel slander??
What is wrong with you....YOU are trying to change history and have shown us NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING.

Daniel Bly and I have a combined 45 years of experience on this family. We have made all the resources anyone would need to prove what we know about them ! THERE ARE NO UNANSWERED QUESTIONS EXCEPT FOR WHY ARE YOU SPOUTING OFF THIS NONSENSE AND HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW US???

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."
