Stephen J. Varns was the son of John and Matilda Ashton Varns of Williams County, Ohio. The 1870 census of Harrison County, Iowa shows Stephen Varns, Clarisa (appears to be Clarisa but probably is CLouisa) Varns, and Zella Varns 4 living in the household of Richard Varns. Carrie Louisa was the daughter of Philip Fisher and Sophia Tesh (or Lesh or Lesher or Lesker) who lived in Williams County, Ohio. After Stephen Varns' death, Carrie L. Varns married Wm. M. Fountain on 9 May 1875 in Harrison County, Iowa. The Fountain marker shows information for Stephen J. Varns and young daughter, Mary R. Varns.

Zella Varns 4 in the 1870 seems to be the same child as Mary R. Varns who was 3 years 11 months ? days at the time of her death in 1872. The age in the census is likely inaccurate. Zella may have been a nickname. Her name may have been Mary Rosella or something similar or perhaps Zella was a nickname for no particular reason.
