Second Generation
 
3  Abijah2 Stevens (Thomas1) was born about 1718, possibly at Dover, NH. He married Frances Dore. She was the daughter of Philip and Sarah (Child) Dore. Frances died in 1804. Abijah died in Lebanon, ME, 15 January 1809, age 91 {16}

Abijah Stevens was a brother of Samuel Stevens and came to Lebanon from Dover, NH {26}. He was one of the early settlers of Lebanon, ME. Abijah lived on the westerly side on the Old Road near Merrow's Corner {26}.

Abijah Stevens removed to Berwick about 1760. "One Abijah Stevens and his wife with their children lately come to this town they not being inhabitants" were warned out of Berwick, 5 May 1760. Abijah "Stephens" is listed in the 1771 Mass. Tax Evaluation as a resident of Berwick with two males over 16 in the household [Abijah and possibly son Samuel] {22}. There are no buildings listed, but the real estate included 4 acres of tillage on which 40 bushels of grain were produced, and 6 acres of upland mowing land which produced 7 tons of hay. He had a horse, 4 oxen, 2 cattle, 6 goats and/or sheep, and 1 swine The annual worth of the real estate was 5. Abijah was a farmer. The next person on the list was Jonathan Stephens, who had no property.

In Rev. Isaac Hasey's diary {26, 29}, Abijah Stevens is mentioned first on 31 May 1773, and again on 15 June 1773 when Hasey visited him. Abijah purchased a pew in the Congregational Church, 14 March 1774. He requested prayers for himself being sick, 24 September 1775, and Rev. Hasey visited him the next day. Abijah requested prayers for his son "in ye army," 10 October 1776. He gave a deed to John Hayes, 9 October 1778. Abijah Stevens purchased Philip "Door's" [Dore] farm, 10 March 1779. Mr. Hasey was at Abijah Stevens' home 24 January 1785, and wrote a deed from Philip Door to Benjamin Stevens. Rev. Hasey wrote an agreement between Henry Door and Abijah Stevens, 5 September 1792.

Abijah Stevens was head of a family in Lebanon in 1790 of one male over 16 years, no males under 16 and one female {1}. Apparently there were no children living in the household of Abijah and Frances Stevens. Rev. Hasey visited and prayed with "old" Mr. Abijah Stevens 2 February 1808. On 10 January 1809 Mr. Hasey again visited and prayed with "old" Abijah Stevens. Abijah Stevens died on 15 January 1809, aged 91 years, and on 17 Jan. Rev. Hasey "preached at ye funeral of Abijah Stevens" {26}.

Joseph and Benjamin, "sons of - and Frances Stevens," were baptized 11 November 1762 at the 2nd Church, Berwick {28}. Chamberlain (1976) {26} lists only Thomas and Benjamin as children of Abijah Stevens.

Third Generation
 
8  Samuel3 Stevens (Abijah2 Thomas1)was born about 1743. He died in Lebanon, 26 December 1823 (g.s.), age 80 {24, 26}. Samuel married first to Abigail -. She was born about 1734 and died in Lebanon, 15 December 1829, age 95 (g.s.) {24, 26}. [Samuel married second to Betsey - {26}]??. They are buried in Lebanon, ME.

Samuel Stevens was living in Lebanon as early as 1773. About 1784 he removed to the farm which was owned in 1896 by Daniel Stevens. He became a member of the First Church in 1773, and his wife, Abigail in 1774. In 1803 he was appointed a deacon in the First Free Baptist Church. {25 }

Samuel Stevens is named in Mass. Archives, Vol. 56, p. 196, as "of Lebanon, drummer, enlisted 20 May, 1775, in Capt. Philip Hubbard's Co. of Col. James Scammon's Regt. Rev. Isaac Hasey wrote 27 May 1775, "Bill up by Sam Stevens for himself going into ye army." {25}

NOTE: The dates do not seem to agree. It would be more likely that Samuel, as a son of Thomas, was born in 1733, which would be the time that Thomas' other children were born and which would make him about the same age as his wife. However, the children of Samuel and Abigail were baptized (and probably born) in the 1770's, which would make Abigail 40 years old or older at their birth. Chamberlain (1976) {26} suggests that Samuel was a brother of Abijah Stevens. An Abijah Stevens [#22?] of Lebanon married in March 1796 to Sally Merrow {20}.

9  Thomas3 Stevens (Abijah2 Thomas1) was born about 1743-47. He died 10 May 1822 at Lebanon, age 75. Thomas Stevens of Lebanon married 20 January 1774 at Berwick to Molly Stanton of Berwick {28, p. 251}. She was born about 1758 and died 2 January 1832, age 74. They are buried in Lebanon on the Isaac Blaisdell farm south of the farm last owned by David Wesley Varney (1939) {26, No. 153}.

On 16 November 1778 Rev. Isaac Hasey gave Thomas Stevens eight dollars for Mrs. Betty Stanton. On 29 July 1785 Rev. Hasey wrote a bond for Benjamin Stevens to Thomas Stevens. Thomas Stevens raised his barn frame on 9 June 1786. Rev. Hasey wrote a deed from Joshua Pray to Thomas Stevens 29 March 1787, and on the same day Rev. Hasey wrote a bond from Thomas Stevens to Patience Hussey, widow. The next day, 30 March 1787, Rev. Hasey wrote a deed for Thomas Stevens of the Hussey place. On 6 July 1789 the widow Hussey gave a deed of the mill to Thomas Stevens.

In 1790, Thomas Stevens was head of a family in Lebanon, consisting of 1 male over 16 years, 1 male under 16 and 7 females. Mr. Hasey wrote, 14 March 1792, that he finished the school at Thomas Stevens'. Thomas Stevens requested prayers, 30 December 1792, on the death of his aunt, Judith Downs, aged 99 years. In the Federal tax of 1 October 1798 he was assessed on a house and 120 acres of land. Thomas Stevens was an officer in the Militia and was called Lieut. Stevens in 1801 and 1802 Mr. Hasey visited and prayed with Thomas Stevens having a wounded eye, 7 September 1803 {26, No. 153}.

Thomas Stevens' relationship to Abijah is supposed by his residence and date of birth. However, Chamberlain (1976) also places Thomas as a son of Abijah.

15  Benjamin3 Stevens (Abijah2 Thomas1) . "Benjamin, son of - and Frances Stevens, baptized 11 November 1762" at the Second Church of Berwick, ME {28}. He was born about 1760 {25}. "Benjamin Stevens (Stephens) married 16 March 1786 Elly (or Etty) Stanton {16; 24}. She was perhaps the daughter of Benjamin and Lydia (Brackett) Stanton of Alfred and Lebanon {25}.

Benjamin Stevens was a private in Capt.

He served two months, from 10 July to 10 Sept., 1779, and travelled 210 miles." {25}

Chamberlain (1976) {26} lists Benjamin as a son of Samuel and Abigail Stevens. He mentions that on 17 March 1782 Mrs. Stevens requested prayers for her son Benjamin in the Army, and that on 8 January 1784, Joseph Stevens and Benjamin Stevens got home from the army. Rev. Hasey noted that on 8 January 1784 Joseph Stevens and Benjamin Stevens gave a bond to Judith Downs and on 29 July 1785 Benjamin gave a bond to Thomas Stevens.

36  Elihu4 Stevens (Joseph3 Abijah2 Thomas1) was born 26 January 1792 [1788]. Elihu married first 9 September 1809 at Rome, ME to Betsey Grant. She was born 12 September 1791 in Smithfield, the daughter of Joshua and Betsey (Horsum) Grant. Betsey died 13 September 1826, age 38 [born 1788, grave stone]. Elihu Stevens and Mary Browning, both of Rome, married 20 December 1827 (int. 10 November 1827). In his obituary notice, Elihu is said to have married a granddaughter of General Burgoyne [Mary (Burgoyne) York] as his second wife. Mary was born in 1787 and died 24 May 1840, age 43.

Elihu, of Belgrade, married third on 10 July 1840 [int. 12 June 1840 Smithfield] at Smithfield by William H. Ellis, JOP, to Mary Grant of Smithfield. Mary was the sister of Betsey Grant. Mary, also known as "Polly," was born in 11 May 1805. While living at home, Polly Grant had a child, John Fish, born 28 July 1839. Mary died 15 September 1867, age 59. Elihu died 10 August 1889 at the home of his son, Asa C. Stevens, in Belgrade, age 101 years.

Elihu was a farmer. He said that he could remember hauling an ox load of beans to Augusta and selling them for five shillings per bushel. At that time there were but two stores there. He remembered the first plow he ever saw when he was but 15 years of age. When 25 years of age he raised 116 bushels of wheat and 100 bushels of shelled corn in one year (1813) from his farm.

Elihu Stevens was a private in the Massachusetts militia, Capt. William Hussey's Company, Lt. Col. D. McGaffey's Regiment. He served from 12 September 1814 to 26 September 1814. This company was raised in Rome, ME and saw service in Hallowell. Other privates in the company were Samuel Grant, Elisha, Ephraim, and George W. Mosher, and Mark Wentworth. It is recorded that rather than appear with an old gun, Elihu purchased one with his own money from a Mr. Greenwood Childe, then of Augusta. Elihu had some difficulty in obtaining his pension, on account of insufficient service, however, he did receive a pension of $8.00 per month for his service.

In 1850 Elihu Stevens, age 63, was living on his farm in Belgrade with Polly, age 43, Adalade, age 9, Elijah, age 6, Edgar, age 5, Elmena, age 3, Francis, age 2, Julius, age 6 months, and John Fish, age 13. In the year before his death, Elihu had been living with one of his sons in Readfield.

Elihu Stevens is buried in Smithfield, ME. Son Alonson is buried at Pine Grove Cemetery, Belgrade.

1820 Census, Rome: 6---1- 1--1--1

There are reports that Elihu Stevens was born in 1788. His obituary, printed in the Lewiston Journal, prominently mentions that he died at age 101, and his gravestone is also indicates that he was born in 1788. However, other evidence places his birth in 1792. Elihu Stevens was a second cousin of Hon. Lot M. and A. P. Morrill, probably through his maternal grandmother's family (Macomber).
