John Kelly STEVENS, d Fort Wayne, 1929
Posted by: Jacqi Stevens (ID *****1846) Date: October 12, 2002 at 18:07:53
  of 911

I am researching the line of John Kelly STEVENS. He was b 1856 in Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co to John STEVENS and Catherine KELLY.

John moved to Fort Wayne by the time he was 21. About a decade later, he joined the Fort Wayne Police department, where he served until his retirement.

John was married three times. While I know certainly that his third wife was Theresa BLAISING (Anglicized spelling version) or BLESIN, I am having trouble locating verification of the first two wives' names. His first wife, whose name may have been Mary or Mary Catherine, was b Ft Wayne, but is buried in the STEVENS family plot in Lafayette, IN (d 1881). She had a daughter, Catherine, b shortly bef her death.

The second wife may have been Clara (possibly MILLER), but I also have record that she and John may have been m 1879, which would indicate she preceeded the marriage to Mary. However, the problem is that this wife would be the mother of John Kelly STEVENS' second child, William H. A. STEVENS, b 1884. These dates are not adding up!

If anyone is working on this line and has any data you would be willing to share to help straighten this out, I would appreciate hearing from you!
