  • ID: I00360
  • Name: Charles Stevens 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 8 MAY 1681 in Abingdon Parish, Gloucester Co., VA 2 3
  • Death: 26 JUN 1726 in Spotsylvania Co., VA 4 5
  • Reference Number: 360
  • Note:

    A note on the use of DNA for research: I strongly encourage male Stevenses to have their DNA checked and to post it on line, either with their identity shielded, as is offered for the Stevenses, or posted without restriction, as I have done.

    Many have joined in this vast work, but it is only a start. I had FTDNA at check my Y DNA to determine common male descent and so far have several matches. While the 12 allele check is a way to start, I recommend the 25 allele results for more refined comparisons. Particularly valuable would be more from the male Stevens line in Europe, where additional results can begin to pin down the origin of the Stevens immigrants to the new world.

    Charles married three times, first Mary, then Sarah, third Elizabeth. His will was signed in 1726, probated in 1727 in Spotsylvania Co. (Book A, 1722-1749, p. 61). His will leaves Elizabeth his Essex Co. lands, thence to his son Mumford. He also had daughters named in the will Mattie and Elizabeth Stevens, so they were born prior to the will being written.

    This is undoubtedly the Charles that Nancy Roberts notes here:

    On GenForum Mumford site, Nancy Cornelison Roberts, December 05, 1998, in reply to Moe Cunningham, "I am searching for the parents of Elizabeth Mumford who married Charles Stevens. He died 1726 Spotsylvania Co., VA; they had Mumford, Elizabeth, Mattie. She md 2) William Bledsoe, pre Aug 1727 and died aft 1770. Could she be granddau. of Edward Mumford? Anyone know names of children of his sons? I have extensive data on Bledsoe family." Nancy Roberts

    I am distributing the children in a pattern that makes sense given his three wives, giving the early ones to Mary, none to Sarah, based on dates, and Mumford on to Elizabeth, given her surname! The dates of birth of all the children are from Pamunkey.... except Mumford, whom I have shifted to accord with the last marriage.
