Excerpt

hysically and kept an erect figure till his death. He lived to be ninety years of age. He died in March, in 1823, on the farm of his son John, (15), near Hardin and was buried in the old Hardin graveyard.

JOSHUA STEPHENS, (6), lived in either Ross County or Franklin County until 1816, when he followed his two sons, John, (15), and E. D., (16), to Shelby County, where he lived with them on their farms near Hardin. His grand-children remember how the old gentlemen used to sit around the fire-place while they teased him by slyly pouring corn into the huge pockets of his old Revolutionary Army coat. Although over eighty years of age, the love of the chase never died, and he often took his old rifle and spectacles and sat by the old salt lick and waited for the deer which never came. (So said Richard Cannon, of Hardin, to me in 1886, who knew him well, and also spoke of his Revolutionary services). He died in March, 1823, on the farm of his son John, (15), near Hardin, and was buried in the old Hardin grave
