To collect and collate the information contained in this 
book has been a labor of love on the part of the compiler, who 
began thirteen years ago, and has devoted much time to the 
work. Every effort has been put forth to secure all the in- 
formation possible, especially on the line descended from 
Thomas. The results have not been entirely satisfactory, ow- 
ing to the imperfect condition of records, which makes neces- 
sary the omission of many families. 

The spelling observed is that of the family. The de- 
scendants of Thomas mostly use " Steevens " to the present 
day. Those of William drop the extra letter "e." No attempt 
has been made to give the English history, as the same is im- 
certain. The comments made in the Ancestor's history ex- 
plain the reasons more in detail. 

No effort has been made toward elaborate execution. The 
book is published for information rather than show. The com- 
piler has received from Mr. Edward C. Nichols, town clerk of 
Klllingworth, much valuable assistance in verifying records, 
and other ways which have contributed largely to greater 
accuracy in the records given herein. In the earlier part of 
the work Mr. C. Goodrich Walton also rendered valuable 
assistance.

lExpkuatnrg. 



Those who read this book will be aided in their examina- 
tion by noting the following facts : 

Each generation constitutes a division ; succeeding gen- 
erations are carried forward in family and numerical order. 

A light-faced figure preceding a name indicates that there 
is no further record. 

A black-faced figure indicates a subsequent history, which 
will be found in the next generation under the same number. 

Whenever the name of the State is omitted, it may be 
understood that the town referred to is in Connecticut. 

The names of husband and wife are put in black-faced type 
so that they may be quickly and easily recognized. 

The Index is divided into two parts. Part I contains the 
Christian names of those whose surname is Steevens. Part II 
contains all other names mentioned in the book. 



Ibt Anri^fitnr. 



Who the "John Stephens" was, who is known to be the 
ancestor of the Steevens family of Guilford, or from whence he 
came, is at present in doubt. It is stated in the " Stevens 
Genealogy," published in 1904, edited by Rev. C. Ellis Stevens, 
LL. D., of New York, that John was the second son of Sir 
Edward Stephens, of Little Sodbury, county Gloucester, and a 
most creditable English line, bristling with coats of arms, ex- 
tends back to Airard FitzStephen, a nobleman of Normandy. 
The story is very attractive, and the line, one of which any 
American might well be proud, but one link in the chain is 
broken, and the previoiis history availeth not. 

The book referred to says : 

Sir Edward Stephens, of the manor of Little Sodbury, Co. 
Gloucester, had issue, 

(1). Sir Thomas, 

(2). John, of Guilford, Conn., etc. 

In a foot note the editor says : "The identity of John Stephens, and the fact tliat his 
father was Sir Edward Stephens, of Sodbury, are specitically recorded in the family doju- 
nieuts, and in historical works a-nd official papers on both sides of the Atlantic, and con- 
firmed by contemporaneous circumstances, and by research, etc."' 

Unfortunately the editor's research did not extend quite 
far enough, for according to Foster's "Alumni Oxoniensis," 
page 1418, "John Stephens, son of Edward, of Little Sodbury, 
Co. Gloucester, arm., matriculated at Lincoln College, Nov. 24, 
1637, aged 15." An inscription taken from St. Thomas' 
Church at Oxford tells the remainder of the story. 

" Johannes Stephens filius secundo gcnitus Edwardi Ste- 
phens de Sodbury parva in comitatu Glocestiensi, Armigeri, 
Adolescens magni ingenii et praeter soiitum juvenilis aetatis 
studium pietate et bonarum literarum scientia ornatus ; obiit 
April 8, anno aetatis vicesimo-secundo. Anno Dom. 1643." 

See LeNeve's Monumenta Anglicana, Vol. I, page 203. 

Translation. 

John Stevens, second son born to Edward Stephens of 
Little Sodbury in County Gloucester, Armiger. a youth of great 
natural ability, and beyond the ordinary inclinations of young 
manhood distinguished for piety and literary attainments, died 
April 8, in the twenty-second year of his age, in the year of 
our Lord 1643. 

These records prove that John, the second son of Edward, 
was born in the year 1622. The Harleian Society Publications, 
Vol. XXI, page 151, give Thomas, eldest son of Edward, as 



10 THE STEEVENS GENEALOGY. 

being four years old in 1623. Foster's Alumni Oxoniensis, 
Vol. I V, page 1420, gives "Stephens, Thomas, son Edward, 
of Little Sodbury, Co. Gloucester, arm., Lincoln College, ma- 
triculated Jan. 22, 1635-6, aged 16. Student Middle Temple, 
1636." This corroborates the first record and proves that 
Thomas, the eldest son of Edward, was born in 1618. It fur- 
ther establishes the fact that John's birth in 1622, as noted 
in previous proofs, is entirely reasonable. Had this John lived 
he could not have been " the ancestor," as he was only 17 years 
old when the real ancester emigrated, as the father of four 
children. 

Such evidence as this cannot be overthrown, and removes 
any possibility of claiming descent from this honored line. 

The N. E. Hist, and Gen. Register, Vol. 47, p. 115, refers 
to a will of Dame Anne Moulson, of St. Christopher, London, 
widow of Sir Thomas Moulson, knight and alderman of Lon- 
don. Date Aug. 11, 1657.^^ Proved Nov. 2, 1661. In this 
document the testator wills " to Mr. John Stevens and his wife, 
another of my niece Knightly's daughters; Mr. Thomas Stevens, 
eldest son of Mr. John Stevens, by Anne, his late wife, daughter 
of my husband's brother, etc." 

This might possibly refer to the " ancestor John." There 
is no authentic information as to the wife's name, which may 
have been Anne, instead of Mary. Steiner's history says John 
came from Kent. It would seem likely that he did come from 
that section, and that he was not an armiger, but a well-to-do 
farmer. This opinion is justified by the following extract from 
Barber's Historical Collections, pages 209, 217 : " Among the 
first 46 original planters who settled in Guilford were John 
Stephens and Thomas Stephens." "The first planters who 
came to this town (Guilford) were of two ranks, viz.: such 
who in England are called gentlemen and commonality. None 
were poor and few or no servants. The gentlemen were all 
men of wealth and bear the appellation of " Mr."; the others 
"goodman" or "neighbor." The first planters were almost 
all husbandmen by profession, no tradesmen or blacksmiths 
among them. * * They were country people and chose 
Guilford as a place like their old home in England, Kent." 

It is more than hkely that none were entitled to bear arms, 
and the descendants of "John Stevens " may well console them- 
selves with the reasonable assurance that their ancestor was 
"Mr." John Stevens, gentleman. 

The first known record of John Stevens appears in Edward 
E. Atwater's " History of the Colony of New Haven," page 
626, which says, the first ship, "The St. John," sailed from 
England May 20, 1639, and amved in New Haven about July 



THE ANCESTOR. 11 

10-15, 1639. The second ship came also in July, 1639, and on 
it were John Sheather and John Stephens, among 24 persons, 
most of whom settled in Guilford. John Stephens appears in 
the Guilford records as having settled there before or about 
1645, at which time he acted as a Judge in the town. It would 
appear likely, however, that he had been there some years, to 
have been appointed to so important an office. In 1650 he 
gives his name and the names of his sons Thomas and William 
in the first list of settlers in Guilford with the spelling " Ste- 
phens." All later records were " Steevens " or "Stevens," 
the former being more common. 

He was a member of the Church of England. He was 
married in England and his wife must have died before he 
emigrated, as she is not mentioned in any records of Guilford. 
Steiner's " History of Guilford and Madison" says: "John 
Stephens with sons Thomas and William came from Kent and 
were in Guilford at first division of lands." 

His "Home lot" of one and one-half acres was on the 
east side of Fair street, next north of William Dudley. He 
also owned thirty-six and one-quarter acres of "upland," be- 
side the alder swamp. 

He must have united with the church at Guilford between 
1650 and 1656, as he is recorded as a freeman in 1656. He 
executed a deed of gift to his son Thomas, of his East Creek 
land, near the alder swamp, of date Mar. 11, 1670. He made 
his will Aug. 27, during his last illness, and three days before 
his death, which occurred Sept. 1, 1670. The will was signed 
with his mark, he doubtless being too feeble to write his name 
in full, as he had often done in days of health. The full text 
of the will appears in the Appendix, copied from the original 
probate records by the compiler. 

The order of birth of the ancestor's children has been made 
a subject of controversy by Dr. C. Ellis Stevens, in his history 
previously referred to. There is no question as to his error in 
this particular, as well as in the English descent. All pub- 
lished records seem to agree. Smyth's "History of Guilford," 
page 15, says, "John Stephens, with sons Thomas and William, 
appear to have been here, etc." Steiner, in his history, speaks 
of the sons as "Thomas and William." In connection with 
the Rossiters, Steiner says Thomas seems to have been the 
chief man in the business, and it was Thomas who handed the 
' Qflensive paper " to Governor Leete. Thomas' name appears 
first on the freemen's list, several years before William's. In 
American Ancestry, Vol. IV, page 18, this is said : " William 
died at Killingworth, 1710-12, of great age, selectman, yoiins;est 
son of John, who came from England about 1640 to Guilford; 



12 THB STEEVENS GENEALOGY. 

had four children, John, in England, Thomas, William, Mary." 
The most positive proof of all, however, is in John's will, 
where the children are named in order, Thomas being first. 
Talcott's manuscript gives the order as John, Thomas, William 
and Mary. Numerous other authorities might be cited in 
proof of Thomas' seniority, but as it is conceded by expert 
genealogists that Thomas was unquestionably the elder son, it 
seems entirely unnecessary to record them. Dr. Stevens' effort 
to establish William's priority was absolutely necessary to give 
him a direct line of succession.

John Stephens, born in England, date unknowm, married

John (2) probably never came to this country. Talcott's 
manuscript simply says of him, " Remained in England." This 
language would clearly indicate that he -never came over. Hon. 
R. D. Smyth says (N. E. Hist, and Gen. Register, Vol. 56, page 
358) that this John married Mary Coit, lived in West Haven, New 
Haven, and New London, and returned to England. Evidently 
this is an error. The John he refers to seems likely to have 
been the son of William Stephens, of Gloucester, an entirely 
distinct family. 

Mary (5) married, first, Henry Kingsnorth, of Staple- 
hurst, Co. Kent, time and place of marriage unknown, who 
died July 29, 1668, and she married, second, John Collins, of 
Branford, June 2, 1669. She died in 1700. Dr. C. Ellis 
Stevens, in his " Stevens Genealogy," 1904, page 60, says: 
" Mary Collins had daughter Mary, born Feb'y, 1700," but 
this could not have been possible, as ^lavy was born in Eng- 
land before 1639, and must have been about seventy years of 
age in 1700. If a child was born to her it must have been in 
1670. As her first marriage was fruitless, it is more than likely 



FIRST GENERATION. 13 

that the child Mary was by a previous marriage. This view is 
further verified in Chapman's " Chapman Family," page 190, 
which says that " Deacon Nathaniel Chapman married June 29, 
1681, Mary Collins, of Guilford, the daughter of John Collins. 
At this date a child of Mary Kingsnorth Collins could not have 
been more than eleven years of age, hence she must have been 
a child by first marriage. 

Hibbard's "History of Goshen," 1897, page 442, gives the 
following account : 

John Collins and wife emigrated from England in 1638. 
Was member Ancient and Honorable Artillery Co. in 1644. 
Had one child John by wife Susannah, born about 1644, This 
John married (1) Mary Trowbridge. She died in 1668 and he 
married (2) Mary Stevens, widow of Henry Kingsnorth. June 
3, 1669. He married (3) Dorcas Swain, widow of John Tain- 
tor. He went to Middletown in 1663, thence to Saybrooke, 
Branford, Guilford, and in 1671 back to Branford, where he 
died Dec. 10, 1704. He had children by first wife. John, 
born in 1665, Robert, born in 1667, and Mary, probably by 
second wife, who married Chapman. 

As this Mary is without doubt the one who married Na- 
thaniel Chapman in 1681, she must have been born before 
John, to Mary Trowbridge Collins. Steiner's "History of 
Guilford and Madison," page 131, says John Collins came to 
Guilford in 1669 and bought John Steven's home and land and 
was made "Planter" Feb. 13,1670. Married Mary, sister of 
Henry Kingsnorth and afterward came into possession of 
lands of Henry and James Kingsnorth. Smyth's " History of 
Guilford," page 22, gives a more detailed statement, and says 
John Collins manied Mary Kingsnorth, sister of Henry. There 
seems to be no question as to the error of these statements 
that John Collins married Mary, a sister of Henry Kingsnorth. 
John Steevens' will, made Aug. 27, 1670, clearly mentions his 
daughter Mary Collins (see Appendix). No mention is else- 
where made of a sister of Henry Kingsnorth, and as John 
Collins seems to be clearly defined, there can be no question 
that his second wife, Mary, was John Steevens' daughter, and 
the widow of Henry Kingsnorth, and it is quite as obvious 
that no issue resulted from the marriage. 

Henry Kingsnorth was born in Staplehiu'st, Co. Kent, in 
1618. He was a man of standing and property, both in old 
and New England. (Smyth's Guilford, p. 46.) He^died and 
was buried July 30, 1668. He came over in the ship "The St. 
John," which sailed from England May 20, 1639, and reached 
New Haven about July 10, 1639. (E. E. Atwater's History of 
Colony of New Haven, p. 626.) 



14 THE STEEVENS GENEALOGY. 

The famous " Planters' " agreement was framed on this 
ship and signed June 1, 1639, by Henry Kingsnorth and 24 
others, nearly all of whom settled in Guilford or Killingworth. 
A copy of this interesting document, explaining the origin of 
the name "planter," appears in the Appendix. 



§>HBx(ii (Bmn^tmn. 



Thomas Steevens (Jok?i ^), born in England about 1628. 
Married in 1650 Mary Fletcher, daughter of John Fletcher of 
Milford. Thomas came with his father from England to Guil- 
ford about 1646. He never became a freeman in Guilford. 
With his father and brother William he was a strong supporter 
of and adherent to Dr. Rossiter, and in October, 1662, all three 
joined with others in seceding from the New Haven colony, 
and tendered their persons and estates to the Connecticut col- 
ony. They were received into this colony and guaranteed pro- 
tection. The bitter controversy which followed caused Thomas 
to remove in 1665 to Killingworth, where in 1669 he was made 
a freeman. Thomas was a man of ability and prominence in 
Killingworth and was twice elected to the General Assembly. 
In 1654, while living in Guilford, he was chosen corporal in an 
expedition against the Dutch of New York. He died Nov. 18, 
1685.

William Stevens {Jo/m^), born 1630 in England. Mar- 
ried, first, Mar. 3, 1653, Mary Meigs, daughter of John and 
Thomasia (Fry) Meigs. She died and he married, second, 
Sarah, widow of David Carpenter, of New London. She died 
April 30, 1703. WilHam was associated with his father and 
brother in joining the Connecticut colony and probably removed 
with them to Killingworth, as he was a member of the church 
there in 1670. He sold all of his landed holdings in Guilford 
to WiUiam Seward on March 26, 1671. He died January, 1703.

Judith married in U'>S6 Samuel Buell, of KilUuKWorth, who died Nov 2, L.33. She died 

Oct 31 1732 

Mary was probably daughter by second wife. Married Joseph Harris, of Killingworth. 

The continuation of this line will be found in Part II. 
Copious notes had been taken, which were turned over to Dr.C. 
Ellis Stevens, who was then preparing a book on this line, 
with the understanding that he was to publish the same. 
His book, however, only gave the male line, and in a histori- 
cal, rather than genealogical style, and not suitable for ready 
reference. Dr. Stevens states that he destroyed the notes after 
extracting his male line of descent. Owing to grave errors in 
his book, which seriously impair its value as a work of authen- 
tic reference, it has seemed best to print so much of the Wil- 
liam branch as can be hastily re-collected from former notes, 
in spite of a promise made by the compiler to Dr. Stevens 
under the misapprehension that his work would give the full 
lines, both male and female, in extenso.

Jonathan Steevens (77/c?wff.y^ John^), born Killingworth, 
Conn., Jan. 2, 1675. Married, date unknown, Deborah Stiles, 
daughter Isaac Stiles, of Stratford, Conn., born Jan. 18, 1682. 
Orcutt's History of Stratford, page 367, (Dr. Henry R. Stiles' 
Genealogy, page 408, quotes same as his authority) says this 
Deborah Stiles married John Sheather, of Killingworth. This 
is probably an error. The town records of Killingworth, as cer- 
tified by Mr. Edward C. Nichols, the town clerk, show the 
riiarriage of four John Sheathers. The second John, who is 
credited by Orcutt as marrying " Deborah," is given as follows 
in Vol. 2 of the Killingworth records: "John Sheather and 
Darkes Stiles were maryed January ye 7th 1712-13." Was 
this Dorcas Burt, of Springfield, Mass., (See N. E. H. Reg., 
Vol. 32, page 302) who married John Stiles (born in England 
1633 and brought to America in 1634) Oct. 28, 1651 ?~ Dr. 
Stiles' Genealogy, page 81, says: "Mr. John Stiles died at 



FOURTH GENERATION. 19 

Windsor, Conn., Dec. 8, 1683, ag-ed about 50. His widow 
probably married again, as a " Darkes " Stiles married John 
Sheather at Killingworth, Jan. 12, 1712-13." It hardly seems 
probable that this was Dorcas Burt, the widow, as she was 
born in 1638, and would have been about 74 years old, while 
John Sheather was born March 23, 1684, and at this time about 
28 years old. Dr. Steiner, in his history, credits several child- 
ren to her. It seems likely that the "Darkes" who did marry 
John Sheather was a daughter of Dorcas (Burt) Stiles or some 
other Dorcas Stiles. Clearly a genealogical error or omission 
has occurred somewhere. This Dorcas died Nov. 7, 1748, and 
hers is the only recorded death of the wife of any John Sheather 
in the Killingworth records. 

As additional proof, Deborah's first child Jonathan was 
born about one year previous to the recorded marriage of 
Dorcas, as shown by the certified record. There can be no 
question as to the correctness of this record. Subsequent 
names and probate records show that Jonathan's wife was De- 
borah Stiles, and comparative dates and facts point to the one 
given as being the correct " Deborah." Jonathan died June 2, 
1746. Deborah died March, 1748. See wills of both in Ap- 
pendix.

Ebenezer Steevens {Mmthayi^^ , Thomas^, John^), born 
Killingworth, Conn., April 4, 1713. Orcutt's History of Strat-

might have been some other Ebenezer, but the Killingworth 
records show that this Ebenezer was born as stated above. 

Married, Dec. 3, 1742, Lucy Griswold, daughter of Ben- 
jamin and Abigail (Norton) Griswold, born at Killingworth, 
March 23, 1721. Their first home was at Killingworth. It is 
recorded that " Ebenezer Steevens, of Killingworth, and Philip 
Chatfield bought of Josiah Stoddard, in Salisbury, Conn., 1059 
acres of land, April 25, 1752. Dec. 4, of same year, he bought 
of John and Esther Barnes a quarter section on Town Hill, 
near Salisbury. About this time the family moved to Salis- 
bury. Their child Beulah was the first child born in Salisbury, 
according to the town records. They joined the Congrega- 
tional Church at Salisbury by letter from the church at Killing- 
worth prior to 1763. He was appointed Corporal in Col. Seth 
Warner's Regiment Feb. 25, 1779 ; Ensign Aug. 7, 1779 ; Quar- 
termaster Sept. 7, 1780. The town records of Salisbury show 
that at a meeting held May 13, 1756, "voted that Ebenezer 
Steevens is chosen to receive and take in the produce of the 
county to answer the county rates of the year ensuing." May 
10, 1781, Ebenezer Steevens confessed judgment to Ethan 
Allen, of Sunderland, Bennington Co., Vt., for sum ^13. 6. At 
Freemen's meeting, April 13, 1773, Ebenezer Steevens took 
the Freeman's oath as required by law. Lucy died in 1811. 
No record can be found of his death, which occurred previous 
to 1811 and later than 1798. His will was made July 4, 1798.

OF 



William Stevens, 



THIRD GENERATION. 91 



William Stevens* 



Much information concerning this line may be obtained 
from the very elaborate history prepared by Rev. C. Ellis 
Stevens, LL. D. (1282), and published 1904. This tabulation 
is given without historic matter, to include several families not 
mentioned in the history referred to, for the convenience of 
those who may desire information about both lines. The com- 
piler has devoted several years to the collection of information 
on this line, and could include much not here given, but in 
deference to the book above referred to it is omitted. 

For First and Second Generations see page 15.

Samuel Stevens {William^ , Jolni^) , born Killingworth, 

March 1, 1657. Married, first, date unknown, Elizabeth . 

She died May 30, 1701, and he married, second, Meletiah 
Bradford, daughter of Major William Bradford and grand- 
daughter of Governor Bradford, of Massachusetts. He died 
in 1712. He had the title " Ensign." 

1001 Temperance Stevens, boru 1683. 

1002 John Stevens, boru 1GS5. ' 

1003 William Stevens, born 1C86. 

1004 Samuel Stevens, born 1687. 

1005 Tamisen Stevens, born 1690. 

1006 Mary Stevens, born 1696. 

1007 Elizabeth Stevens, born 1703. 

Temperance married Denton . (See Appendix). 

Dr. C. Ellis Stt^vens, in his "Stevens Genealogy," page 63, says that John (1002) " died 
unmarried Oct. 5, 174:;." Under the best evidence obtainable it seems altogether lik'«lv 
that this IS an ernir, and the death recorded is that of John (1U~'0), son of Samuel U'X)4.") 
It is also more than probable that this John (l»X)e) really married Elizabeth firiunell. in- 
stead of John (13), as recorded on page 21 . This evidence has been secured since that 
record v.as printed. The editor is somewhat in doubt, but inclines to the belief that the 
record given under John (43) belongs actually ts) John (lOO'J). Under corrected informa- 
tion the following changes should lie noted : Jahn and Elizabeth Grinnell were niarrifd 
March 15, 1709-10. She died Feb. 14, n4r-l8. EJiakim was born Feb. lb, ITU. John born 
Jan. 21, 1715. Jemima born .March 11. ir~'0. Married Benjamin Griffith Dec. 2.5, 174ti. 

It is also possible that William (lOO.i) was the one who really married Ridiamah Earl, 
instead of William (4S). The possibility of this is suggested by the fact that the sister, 
ElizaVjeth (1007), had a son Leverett. The fact that Christopher (121) wills lands on the 
"Mill Plain," which descended from Thomas, would indicate that the record as given on 
page S2 is correct.

The Planters Covenants 



The History of the Colony of New Haven by Atwater, page 
626, says the first ship, " The St. John:' sailed from England 
May 29, 1639. On this ship were twenty-five persons, including 
Henry Kingsnorth, nearly all of whom settled in Guilford. 
While on the high sea nothing was more natural than for these 
sturdy sons of the soil to be planning for their future. From 
Smyth's History of Guilford we copy the famous planters 
agreement, which was framed and signed on board this ship 
while on the voyage. 



THE COVENANT. 

We, whose names are hereunder written, intending by 
God's gracious permission, to plant oiirselves in New England, 
and if it may be, in the southerly part about Quinnepeack : 

We do faithfully promise each to each- for ourselves and 
famines, and those that belong to us ; that we will, the Lord 
assisting us, sit down and join ourselves together, in one entire 
plantation ; and to be helpful each to the other, every common 
work according to every man's ability and as need shall re- 
quire ; and we promise not to desert or leave each other on the 
plantation, but with the consent of the rest, or the greater 
part of the company, who have enlisted in this engagement. 

As for our getting together in a church way and the choice 
of officers and members to be jomed together in that way, we 
do refer ouselves until such time as it shall please God to set- 
tle us in our plantation. 

In testimony whereof, we subscribe our hands the first 
day of June, 1639. 

Signed by Henry Kingsnorth 
and 24 others.

114 THE STEEVENS GENEALOGY- 

From this agreement came the word " planter " as dis- 
tingfuished from " freeman." The former being applied till the 
person joined the church when the latter title was used. No 
list of planters was extant in Guilford till 1650, when a list of 
freemen was made to which was appended the " planters." On 
this list appears the name of Henry Kingsnorth as " freeman " 
and the names of John Stephens and Thomas Steevens as 
planters. The name William Stevens does not appear till the 
second list. 

The church was instituted in Guilford June 19, 1643. 

The fundamental agreement contained the following : "We 
do now therefore, all and every of us agree, order and conclude 
that only such planters as are also members of the church here, 
shall be called "freemen."

CHESTER THOMAS 316. 

Chester Thomas descended from Jacob Thomas, an old 
and prominent Vermont farmer. A number of his ancestors 
fought in the Revolution. An uncle, Isaac Thomas, was killed 
in Gen. Sullivan's march up the Susquehanna, at Horseheads. 
His mother, Susannah Rowley, was the daughter of Dr. Reuben 
Rowley, a distinguished soldier of the Revolution. 

At the age of twenty-one Chester was elected constable, 
and held various offices in Bradford county. Pa., for twenty- 
five years. He was sheriff for three years. 

In 1858 he left Pennsylvania and settled in Shawnee Co., 
Kansas. In 1859 he was elected to the Territorial Council by 
the counties of Shawnee, Osage and Lyon. In 1861 President 
Lincoln appointed him United States Special Agent for Kansas 
and the western territories Nebraska, Dakota, Colorado, Utah 
and New Mexico. In 1862 he was appointed Captain and 
Assistant Quartermaster, resigning soon after his wife's thril- 
ling experience at Baxter Springs, on account of poor health. 
In 1864 he was a Presidential Elector and voted for Abraham 



APPENDIX. 127 

Lincoln. After retiring from public life he eng-aged largely in 
contracting for and furnishing supplies to the United States 
government. In politics Mr. Thomas was a Democrat origi- 
nally, with anti-slavery convictions. He was a close friend of 
David Wilmot, author of the famous " Wilmot Proviso." His 
devotion to the anti-slavery cause early drew his attention to 
Kansas, and it was owing to this fact that he settled there, and 
took up the Republican issue. He aided materially in locating 
the capital of Kansas at Topeka. He was the leading spirit in 
the canvas for this result. 



LYDIA STEEVENS (THOMAS) 466. 

Account of Baxter Springs Massacre and Her Tlirilling Adventure, 

October 6, 1863. 

Captain Chester Thomas was Quartermaster at Fort Gib- 
son, Indian Territory, in October, 1863. He was very ill, and 
his wife received a message at her home, in Topeka, Kansas, 
to come to him with all possible haste. She gathered a quan- 
tity of delicacies and prepared to start at once. Adolphus, the 
eldest son, was to accompany her. He went home to inform 
his family and make necessary arrangements, but his wife 
strenuously opposed his going, having a presentment that if he 
did he would never return alive. He, therefore, gave it up, 
and a neighbor. Captain Home, who was going to Fort Scott, 
took his place as driver of her carriage, and conducted her 
safely to that place. Her team was a pair of fine dapple gray 
mares and the carriage a top buggy. 

Arri\nng at Fort Scott, Mrs. Thomas learned that Gen. 
James G. Blunt was about to move his headquarters from Fort 
Scott to Fort Smith, Ark., and would start the next day for 
Fort Smith by way of of Fort Gibson. Gen. Blunt consented 
to escort Mrs. Thomas to her destination and detailed John C. 
Pratt to drive her carriage. 

The troop, consisting of Co. I, 3d Wisconsin Cavalry, 40 
meh, Co. A, 14th Kansas Cavalry, 45 men, the Brigade Band, 
Gen. Blunt's stafi" and ten baggage wagons, left Fort Scott 
about noon October 4, 1863, marched six miles and encamped 
at "Dry Wood " 

The next day they marched thirty-four miles and camped 
at Cow Creek. Trooper Pratt was unhitching the team, to 
picket them out for grass, when one of the horses kicked him 
on the leg. This put him out of sorts, and going to the head- 
quarters wagon he told Charles H. Davis, one of the 3d Wis- 



128 THE STEEVENS GENEALOGY. 

consin men, who had been detailed as messenger to Major 
Henry Z. Curtis, of Gen. Blunt's staff, and was riding- in the 
headquarters wagon, that if he wanted his job he could have 
it. Davis gladly consented and at once took Pratt's place as 
driver for Mrs. Thomas. 

The next morning (October 6) they started on the march 
about six o'clock. At noon, the advance, consisting of Gen. 
Blunt and Major Curtis in a top buggy, Mrs. Thomas and 
driver in a top buggy, two ambulances and fifteen mounted 
men, halted about one mile from Baxter Springs, waiting for 
the balance of the escort to come up. As the command came 
up firing was heard from the southeast, in the direction of 
Baxter Springs. On their left, about half a mile away, was a 
belt of timber, and there appeared at the edge of this timber a 
troop of about three hundred mounted men, dressed in blue. 
Gen. Blunt supposed they were Federal troops coming out of 
Baxter Springs Fort to escort them in. Capt. Tufft, chief of 
escort, came galloping up to the General and said it was Quan- 
trell. The General, not believing it, was slow to comprehend 
the situation. In the meantime the troopers continued to 
approach, and at once broke into a charge, which was accom- 
panied by rapid firing. Blunt's men fired one volley and the 
conflict became a complete rout. In less time than it takes to 
tell it the greater portion of Blunt's men were slaughtered in 
cold blood. 

On the first onslaught. Gen. Blunt (dressed in citizen's 
clothes) and Major Curtis had alighted from their buggy and 
mounted their horses, which the colored servants had been 
riding. Trooper Davis at once started Mrs. Thomas' team on 
a dead run, breaking to the right over the prairie, to the west. 
Mrs. Thomas had said to Davis, "What are we going to do ?'' 
He replied, "Get away from here if we can," at the same time 
telHng her to get down from the seat and lay flat in the bottom. 
She did this, her feet and body being under the seat and her 
head next the dashboard, with nothing under it but her arm. 
Davis got on his knees and leaned far over the dashboard, 
with his head down as low as he could get it, arms extended, 
his left hand grasping the reins, his right playing the whip and 

' the horses running at full speed. 

For some distance several of Quantrell's men pursued, 
firing constantly. The top of the buggy being up the pursuers 
could not see the occupants, and supposing them to be sitting 
on the seat, they riddled the top with bullets, all of vrhich 
passed over them. Their lives were saved by their precaution. 
The horses ran at topmost speed for about three miles, and 

then becoming exhausted, stopped in a hollow — a "sugar-bowl" 
as it is called on the prairie. 



APPENDIX. 129 

As they came to a stop Davis got out of the buggy, and 
looking back, saw two horses coming rapidly toward them with 
empty saddles. As they came up he stopped them and led 
them up to the left side of the buggy. Mrs. Thomas at once 
jumped astride of one and Davis mounted the other, and both 
started on a gallop. After going about half a mile, seeing no 
pursuers behind, they stopped, worn out with the fierce riding, 
and not knowing what to do next. About half or three-quarters 
of a mile to their left they saw a little knot of mounted men 
standing still. They decided to approach cautiously and see if 
they were friends or foes, so they started on a walk, and at the 
same time one man from the party started toward them. Very 
soon Mrs. Thomas stopped and Mr. Davis rode on alone till he 
came within hailing distance, when he discovered that they 
were from their own escort. He called Mrs. Thomas, and to- 
gether they rode up to the party, which consisted of Gen. Blunt 
and nine of his men, who had escaped the general slaughter. 

After a short consultation in regard to Mrs. Thomas, Gen. 
Blunt turned to one of his men and said, "You go with Mrs. 
Thomas to Fort Scott. Go in a northwest direction across the 
prairie, keeping away from the road." Upon this Mrs. Thomas 
started with the trooper and Mr. Davis remained with the 
party. He says, "This is the last I ever saw of Mrs. Thomas 
and I do not know the name of the trooper who went with 
her." 

Soon after Mrs. Thomas and trooper Davis abandoned the 
carriage. Major Henning found it just as it had been left, with 
the horses still standing in their tracks. Supposing of course 
Mrs. Thomas and the driver had been killed, he took the team 
and drove it to Baxter Springs. When Trooper Davis and his 
party reached Baxter Springs toward night he found the rig 
there and drove it out to bring in a wounded comrade. The 
team was later sent to Fort Scott by Major Henning. 

The experience of Mrs. Thomas after she left Gen. Blunt's 
party can only be given in the traditional story handed down 
from memory as she told it later. Certain it is that she left the 
surviving party with a single trooper as escort and upon the 
same horse she had ridden since leaving the buggy, not having 
dismoimted while with Gen. Blunt's party. They traveled till 
darkness overtook them, when they halted in a grove of cotton 
wood beside a stream. Mrs. Thomas was assisted from fhe 
saddle, her clothing stiff with blood from the wounded horse 
she rode. She had probably changed horses after leaving 
Trooper Davis and the party, as it is stated that she had ridden 
two horses during the afternoon. It also appears that several 
soldiers, probably straggling survivors of the massacre, on 

16 



130 THE STEEVENS GENEALOGY. 

their way to Fort Scott, had joined them, as — according to 
Mrs. Thomas' own statement — 'The soldiers watched while I 
slept the sleep of exhaustion with the sod for a pillow." They 
discovered another camp on the opposite side of the stream. 
Not knowing- whether they were friends or foes, the strictest 
silence was observed till morning, when they discovered that 
they were friends, who kindly provided them with breakfast, 
and then they resumed their journey to Fort Scott, arriving 
safely before night. 

Mrs. Thomas was obliged to remain in bed for a week or 
more. Upon her recovery she returned to Topeka. Her health 
never again became robust, and in a little more than a year 
she passed away — her end no doubt hastened by the terrible 
ordeal through which she had passed. She died December 3, 
1864. It is hardly probable that any woman during the civil 
war passed through a more thrilling experience to come out 
alive. 



Mr. Charles A. Davis, to whom we are indebted for the 
facts given in this account, is still living in good health at 
Baraboo, Wis. He confidently believes that he owes his life 
to the kick of the horse, which gave him the position of driver, 
making an escape possible.
