On another thread, titled "Martha Stephens Rogers and Hester Rogers," I previously commented that my g-g-g-grandfather Emmor Jefferson Stephens had been a bartender on the Ohio River. This is a typo. He had been a bargetender on the busy Ohio River.
I also previously commented on the fact that Emmor Jefferson Stephens and his younger brother Isaac married two sisters, Elizabeth and Mary Bowles. What is most interesting about my ancestor Elizabeth Bowles is that she is believed to have descended through her mother from the Fulton family of Washington County, Pennsylvania. Robert Fulton, the celebrated American inventor, is described as a cousin in family chronicles.
