  • Note:

    Stephen lived in the vicinity of his father's home place all his life, as evidenced by his purchase of land granted by his father in 1808 on Spruce Run, a branch of New River. Stephen and Barbary lived in a log house, with probably one room which most house's had at that time, they had a fireplace in one end of the room, table, chairs and benches, the loom, as they had to weave material for their clothing. They also had a spinning wheel in a place of convenience as it was used constantly. The parents usually slept in the main room and the children slept in a loft. Cooking was done over the fireplace, which was also the heat source for the cabin.

    Stephen bought and sold land several times between 1810 and 1837. I have been unable to find the grave site for Stephen but I am sure he was buried in Giles County, Virginia. Barbara, or Barbary which seemed to be her nickname apparently moved to Pike County, Kentucky with her children as she is listed on some of the documents in that county.

    In the will of John Huffman, the father of Barbara Huffman Rowe, dated the 6th day of March, 1824 and recorded in the Clerk's Office of the Circuit Court of Giles County at Giles August Court, 1834, contained the following provision; "Negroes to be sold by my executors immediately after by decease and the money arising from such sale to be equally divided among my daughters Catherine Damewood, Sophia Roe, Barbara Roe, Faney Hevery and Mary Bostevs except ten dollars to be give over and above to my daughter Mary Boster, to be freely enjoyed by then forever."

    Stephen may have married a second time in that Rebecca Rowe is listed as the mother of Reuben.
