Family History

The Stevens family documented in this collection can be traced to Otho Stevens of unknown parentage and birthplace, although it is probable he was born in Great Britain and certainly died in Hampstead, N.H. in 1771. Descendent and resident of Pittsford, NY, Robert Croll Stevens, a genealogist and biographer, collected materials documenting the personal and professional lives of five generations of Stevens family, beginning with Alden Sprague Stevens, 1795-1874, a member of the fourth generation of the Stevens family.

Other major members of the Stevens family documented in this collection in descending order of generation are: Robert (Wadleigh) Smith Stevens, Frederick Charles Stevens, Robert Sproule Stevens, and the collector himself, Robert Croll Stevens. In addition, published and unpublished materials relating to members of the immediate families of these men has been carefully sought and included.
