Moses Stevens is my GG Grandfather, his daughter, my great grandmother was Mable Stevens Daniels. I don't know if any of this will help you or if it has anything to do with your Moses Stevens. This article came from Portrait and Biographical Album Graitiot County, Michigan, Moses was a mechanic, carpenter and joiner, section 31, Ithaca Township, was born in Gloucestershire, England, October 30, 1819, and was the son of Emanuel and Elizabeth (Gasser) Stevens, natives of England and of English descent. In his native country his father (Emanuel) was a tinsmith, and he came to America in 1831, settling in the State of New York. He there engaged in farming and died in 1842. The mother ( Elizabeth) died in Tuscola County, Michigan, in 1881, at the age of 86 years. Whe n 12 years old Moses came with his parents to this country, and he lived in New York State until he was 21 years old. He was then married to Susan M. Hulett. They came afterwards to Tuscola County, Michigan, where she died, in September 1871. April 1, 1874, he was married to Sabra Blair, who died in the same county a year later. October 3, 1876, he was a third time married, at East Saginaw, Michigan; and he took for his life partner this time Mrs. Elmira M. Potter (nee Lake), daughter of Nicholas and Alzina (Cross) Lake, natives of St Lawrence County, New York, and of English descent. They followed farming, and removed at an early day to Ontario, Canada. After 20 years’ residence there, they came to Forestville, Sanilac County, where the father died, in September 1854. His wife afterwards removed to Gratiot County, then went on a visit to Iosco County, where she died, in December 1874. Elmira M. was born at Smith falls, Canada, January 24, 1833. At the age of 19, she came to this State: and she was married at Grand Lodge, Eaton County, October 12, 1856, to William Potter, a native of New York. Three months later, they came to this county, and located a half mile from Ithaca. Mr. Potter improved 120 acres of land, and died September 2, 1862, aged nearly 33, leaving to the care of his widow three children, Ida B. George W. and Cora M.

Mr. Stevens had by his first marriage three sons and seven daughters, all of who are living except one son and two daughters. Mr. and Mrs. Stevens now live on the Potter homestead. They belong to the society known as the
Seventh-Day Adventists. In Politics Mr. Stevens is an adherent of the Republican Party.
