States: Indiana: Fayette
I now know that John Stephens died, 1827, in Fayette Co., IN. He had no heirs and his siblings were Ruth (Miller) - my line, Mary, Margaret (Morton), James, William, Samuel, Richard, Benjamin and Thomas. His father was Benjamin and his father was Richard of Ayr Twp, Bedford Co., PA. The family used the same given names over and over making the distinguishing of individuals difficult. One more common given name of this line is Abednego. To my knowledge, this name only occurs in this line and that of the Benjamin Stephens who married Rebecca Caldwell. One would assume the two lines are related since they also use the same names.
