Below you will find the obituary for Isham Hopkins Stephenson, born 1834 in Alabama and died 1918 in Coleman County, Texas. I must admit that I had never heard of Isham until he popped up on my radar when I had my DNA tested through ancestry.com. Since that time, I’ve learned quite a bit about him, even found him in Comanche County (where he was a Methodist minister) from 1887 to 1908, but I simply cannot make the connection.
Isham H. Stephenson married Nancy Henson in 1861 in Robertson County, Texas. She was born in Blount County, Alabama the daughter of William Miner Henson and Mary Lexy Green. I feel sure that it is through this Green connection that my DNA comes to match with that of Isham’s family, but I am not sure yet.
Margaret Stephenson married Charles Fenwick in Comanche in 1902.
Alice Stephenson married Henry Jasper Bingham in Comanche in 1896.
