I grew up in the Mountains of West Virginia. My ancestors were in the Appalachians before the 1700's. I recently relocated to Phoenix,Arizona to escape the harsh winters,cold and rain.Down Stephenson Lane has been a long dream to tell the story of my Mother's family. I learned great things from the teachings of my many Aunts and Uncles.....and there were no lack of cousins as my Mother was one of Eighteen siblings. Please enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed my family and still do . This will be our Seventy-fifth Reunion this year!!
