Additional Information

Robert Stevens:

Buried: Folly Mountain Cemetery, West Folly Mountain, Colchester, Nova Scotia, Canada

Notes:



per 1838 census, Robert is living next door to William at #113 Londonderry and is thought to be a son.

9 Nov 2006 - This note came from the Colchester Historical Society: "Hi Dianne: Below, is a note from Jane Wile regarding the question you asked. We didn't have a copy(but do now) of the register here so checked with her.

....I did look over the marriage record Dianne Stevens was asking about and it is recorded in the Rev. Bayne register as taking place Jan 16 1849 at Folly Lake. I've looked these Stevens families over before and have corresponded with Dianne about them and it is because the marriage took place at Folly Lake that I believe that Robert Stevens b. 1824 has to be the son of William Stevens of Folly Lake.... there was no other Stevens families at Folly Lake. The second Robert Stevens b. 1796 she refers to did not live at Folly Lake - he lived at East Mines/Debert area.

I hope this helps. If we can be of further help, please let us know. If you would like to make a donation, a cheque can be made out to the Colchester Historical Society Archives and mailed to the address below attention to me.

    "From Jane Wile a volunteer researcher - This Robert I feel certiain is the sonof William Stevens and Hannah Higgins (William is the sn of Thomas Stevens and Agnes [Nancy] Elliott. . . .
    Next, I located this William Stevens property at Folly Lake on the land petition (dated July 16, 1861) of James Higigins who was to receive the property bounding William Stevens north property line. This James Higgins is Likely a nephew of Hannah (Higgins) Stevens.
    Next, I looked at Church's map of Colchester and it identifies that "R. Stevens" lives on the east side of Folly Lake in the exact same place where the William Stevens farm would have been. Deeds might show a property transfer. The above William Stevens is not recorded on the 1871 census and so likely died between 1861 and 1871.
    Now, there are two Robert Stevens in the Londonderry census of 1871 and when you compare the families and their near neighbors there is no doubt that the R. Stevens at Folly Lake is Robert, husband of Agnes McLean.
    Looking at the 1828 (I believe she means 1838 census. - DZS) census Robert Stevens of Folly Lake wasb. Oct 12,1824, so this means he would be in the 'above 14 years' on the census. William and Agnes Stevens of Folly Lake have two sons above 14years in this census and Robert and Mariah Stevens do not record any sons above 14 years.
    This is my reasoning behind my conclusions. I think they are sound - the location of Robert's farm on the Church Map was the clincher for me.
    Now as for William Stevens of Folly Lake, he is the possible son of Thomas Stevens and Agnes Elliott."
