Ned, we have two Stephens here. Stephen, the son of Joseph, submitted an affidavit with the pension app that says he and his brother, Isaac, had financially supported their parents for the previous 8 years, etc.
I obtained the full pension file from National Archives. It has several documents that aren't available through Heritage Quest, including an affidavit that clearly states it is from Stephen Holley, of Cornwall, Vermont. He attests to serving with Joseph Holley. There are also affidavits from Jesse Bishop of Addison County, VT and Russel Hunt of Litchfield County, CT attesting to Joseph's service with them.
I will email my transcription of the full file to you directly. There were a few indecipherable words and question marks in their places, but it was mostly quite readable.
