MCDOWELL, STEPPHENS posted by Dahrl E. Moore on Wednesday, December 18, 2002
I am interested in any information on the murder of Henry STEPPHENS on 26 Dec. 1876. This would include any coroner's inquest, newspaper article or death certificate if at all possible. Supposedly he sold horses in Vinton and was murdered on the way home, this being the family story. His wife's name was Margaret MCDOWELL, children, Harrison, James, Joseph, Mary Jane who was my husband's ggrandmother. Any and all help greatly appreciated. Dahrl E. Moore
