SYLVANUS/JOHN STEVENS, Ridgefield/Fairfield,c. 1820

I am trying to trace back a John Lang Stevens, b. abt. April 1822, d. May 1900, Bethlehem, CT. His death record from Bethlehem, Litchfield, CT gives his father as "Sylvanus Stevens" and birthplace as Ridgefield, Fairfield, CT. No mother listed. I strongly suspect "Sylvanus" is the same as Silvanus Stevens from the Poundridge, Westchester, NY area who married in 1807 Laura/Lora Olmstead from Ridgefield, Fairfield, CT. If anyone has information that would help me bridge this gap, I would appreciate it. Thank you, M. Winslow
