Hi,
       Yes I do have that info. I got it from the LDS IGI, like you said, but I feel uncomfortable with it. I have seen too many mistakes in the IGI to believe all of it. For instance, I have the book "Thomas Henry Stevens' Decsendents" by Archer and Carol Stevens. I'm sure you've seen this book. I am a descendant of David Burrus Stevens, and you and I are
cousins. They show the parents of Nancy Wood Posey are Benjamine Posey and Susannah Easley. The IGI says the parents are Jesse Posey and Susannah Wood. So which is right? On the one hand, I believe Archer and Carol Stevens, but since Nancy's middle name is Wood, that would infer that Susannah Wood is her mother. Also some people say her middle name is Ann.
       I searched the marriage record a year ago and couldn't find anything so I just ordered the microfilm again to renew my search.
       If you can contribute anything to this controversy, let me know.
       Thank you,
       Bobby Stevens
