Query Surnames: Stevens

Date: 6 Sep 2000

Query: My daughter has just purchased a house in Miami County. It is well over a hundred years old and is in need of loving care. She has begun to find out something of its origins.

Its first owner of the house was William M Stevens of Kentucky received a land grant for property in Miami county, possibly because of service in the Blackwar War. The grant was recorded 21 Sept 1860. Subsequently recorded in Miami County on 25 Mar 1895. The property is not located in a town. The previous owner of the property was widow of Oh-Kaw-Pe-Kiew.

I have been able to locate the following: The 1867 Miami County Census shows a Wm. Stevens in Osawatomie Twp. (pages 11 - 12). The 1870 Fed Census Index for Kansas shows Wm L Stephens in Osawatomie Twp (page 451).

I would like to talk to anyone who has record of this gentleman and of his home and property.
