Bio Photo In Honor of those who have gone before us 💙

NONE of us who have been working on the Peter Stephens family tree for more than 25 years will ever accept anything that contradicts or is inconsistent with the information we already have unless it is backed up by photocopies of actual documents or written transcript certified as accurately copied from the original. By certified it means checked by an acknowledged genealogist, historian or specialist who is not related to the people who own the documents.

Our ancestors are watching !

For anyone researching the Peter Stephens family:

One of the better authors and historians is Daniel Bly and he is among us here on findagrave (#48940997). One of his many works is FROM THE RHINE TO THE SHENANDOAH, Volume III (Baltimore, MD 2002), Stephens Chapter, pages 171-183.

Another well documented work is that of Linton E Love. He documents the Rittenhouse family immigrants & descendants in his RITTENHOUSE GENEALOGY CD version 20 March 2005" see page 13. Anyone wishing to learn should have a look at both of these works via Google books; the Rittenhouse work is available for free download in PDF form.

RE: Isaiah Puryear
I probably should not have assumed Isaiah's middle name was Berry, but I puzzle the piece with Littleberry Puryear referenced to his daughter Rebecca's death certificate as her father's name as Berry Puryear and my great grandfather is James Berry Puryear which is Isaiah's son by his second marriage.
