I recently purchased a Stephens Family Bible on Ebay that was probably owned by Patti Stephens DeBoer Walton. She listed her marriage to Hugh Ely Walton in Sibley, Iowa on January 8, 1924, also Hugh's death in 1936, and his burial in the Holman Township Cemetery.

Patti and I share Stephens ancestors going back to Wales in the 1700s. I would like to know Hugh's parents and his place of birth. Hugh's mother may have been Hannah. The 1880 census has a widow Hannah Walton with son Hugh living in Macoupin, Illinois. Hugh apparently was married to Amanda (family name unknown) according to the 1900 census. She died before 1920 when Hugh is listed as a widower.
