They may have had a daughter named Viola:

They may have had another daughter named Ethel:

Here is a marriage for Lewis & Beulah:

It looks like daughter Viola from his 1st marriage was living with them in 1910:

Edna L Philips        5/12 -dau- b. 1910 ME

Hope this helps. I'm sorry I could not find Henry Stevenson's 1st marriage. Annie
