I don't know if I can help, but I am also related to the Stephens, Barkers, Fraleys and Isons of Elliott Co., Ky. My gr-gr.grandfather was James G. Stephens and he was married in 1854 to Pricy Henson in Morgan Co. She later divorced him and he married Polly Osburn. Jame's parents were Daniel and Dorcus Manis Stephens. James was originally from Hawkins County, TN. He also had a brother Steven and a brother Andrew and other siblings as well.
If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know.
