    Thanks for compiling such detail in your family history! You’ve managed to fill a few gaps I had in our Stephenson family tree. It would seem we are related, albeit once removed and about fifth cousins! Your George Wold Stephenson (b 1813) was brother to my Absalom Wold Stephenson (b 1798); Absalom is my Great Great Great Grandfather by direct line of descent. Consequently your George (b 1774) and my George are one and the same! I look forward to further additions to your info – I have a few gaps re George’s siblings (Henry and Mary’s other children) and the names of Henry’s siblings. Best regards from cousins in Australia!
