I am seeking information about the parents/siblings of Minerva (Manerva) Stevenson (Stephenson) of the Nicholas/Fleming County, Kentucky area. This is what I know about her:
Born May 9, 1826-death certificate says born in Fleming County, Cowan precinct, KY; obituary says born in Lewis County, KY
Died July 27, 1899 at home of daughter in Pleasant Valley (which is in Nicholas County, KY-near Fleming County line)
Married David Jolly (August 22, 1827-April 27, 1895), son of James Jolly and Nellie Flora, on May 18, 1954; Mattison Flora signs marriage bond (“age of Manerva Stephenson proved by oath of Mattison Flora”)
Children of David and Minerva were Nannie Pickett (sp-Wm. Thomas Hammonds), Amanda Ellen (sp-Walter Lake Teel), William (sp-Mary Jane Blount), John Fleming (sp-Betty McIntyre), Alfred Jefferson (sp-Nancy Catherine Moore), Matthew (sp-Elizabeth King)
In 1850 census, Minerva is 23 years old, single, and living with Madison Flora-Flora, Madison, born July 21, 1818, died January 11, 1874 –re Poplar Run Cemetery enumeration, and his wife, Amanda (who I think was a Jolly)- Flora, Amanda, born July 1, 1819, died March 21, 1894, wife of Madison Flora-re Poplar Run Cemetery enumeration. They had several small children.
In 1850, a Sally Stevenson is head of household in district 1 of Nicholas County, number 115, age 53 with 3 males—James-18, Alfred-16, and James-9. A Thomas and Rebecca Flora family is next door (116) and a George and Lucretia Flora family at 118. Could this possibly be Minerva’s family? The Mattison Flora family in 1850 (where Minerva is living) is in the same district in number 523.
Does anyone have any information about Minerva’s parents or siblings?
