JOHN STEVENSON

"John STEVENSON, one of the old settlers of Ringgold County, residing on section 12, Jefferson Township, was born in Guernsey County, Ohio, April 4, 1817, a son of James Stevenson, a native of County Down, Ireland, who came to the United States when a young man.

Our subject received his education in the rude log-cabin subscription schools of that early day.

He was married June 13, 1839, to Miss Margaret Henderson, a daughter of Andrew Henderson, and of the six children born to this union, three are living - Andrew, Thomas and Lana.

Mrs. Stevenson died February 11, 1864, and Mr. Stevenson was again married April 17, 1866, to Miss Rebecca Bingaman, a daughter of the late John Bingaman. By his last marriage Mr. Stevenson had two children who are both deceased.

Mr. Stevenson came to Ringgold County, Iowa, in 1868, and settled on the place where he now resides, which is known as the Beaver Farm, his home farm in Jefferson Township containing 377 acres, besides which, he owns eighty acres of land located in Union County, Iowa.

Mr. Stevenson is a member of the United Presbyterian church."
