So with birth date for Quill I went looking at 1880 census.

1880 census Bandera Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Thomas STEVENS Self M Male W 25 AR Farming TN MO
Margret STEVENS Wife M Female W 24 TX Keeping House KY TN
Luilo STEVENS Son S Male W 6 TX AR TX
Avalina STEVENS Dau S Female W 4 TX AR TX

Same page 1880, right age and birth location to be the father of Thomas:

Henry STEVENS Self M Male W 62 TN Farming --- PA
Margret STEVENS Wife M Female W 50 AR Keeping House KY KY
Lewis M. STEVENS Son S Male W 19 TX At Home TN AR
Lula B. STEVENS Dau Female W 14 TX TN AR
Henry STEVENS Son S Male W 9 TX TN AR
Magdaline STEVENS Dau S Female W 7 TX TN AR
Millie STEVENS Dau S Female W 5 TX TN AR

I went back to 1870 cenus and Thomas was living in household of Henry.

1870 census Bandera Co, TX:

Stevens, Henry, 52, b TN - land 1800/personal 500
" Mageth[sic], 42, b AR
" Thomas, 15, b AR
" George, 13, b TX
" Texan, 11, b TX
" Levis, 9, b TX
" Eizabeth, 7, b TX
" Lular[sic], 5, b TX
" Henry 1, b TX

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Stevens, Henry, born Tennessee, 1818 + or - five years. Several people are working on this line. Be careful, see if you can learn sources for their information. All show father of Henry as Thomas, except one. Now, did all the others copy from each other, or did the one have an error?

As for the war in MO, I have no idea. I have a Thomas and Mary Jones line in Colonial VA I'm working on, if you get your line into that time period and location, get back to me.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
