George H. Stevenson (1855-1938)



George H. Stevenson was born October 30, 1855 in Boone County, Kentucky.  He was the son of James S. Stevenson and Elizabeth J. Huey.  George’s mother died while he was very young, so he and his father lived with family members during his growing up years.

George married Florence May Clements on September 8, 1886 in Boone County, Kentucky.  He was 30 years old and she was 27 years.  Florence was born in September 1859, the daughter of Roger T. Clements and Minerva J. Riley.

After their marriage, George and Florence settled their family on a farm in Union, Boone County, Kentucky.  They were the parents of ten children:

Hubert W.                                born 1887, died April 17, 1887
Elizabeth Jane “Lizzie”            born February 18, 1888
Albert May                              born November 24, 1889
Nina Proctor “Nancy”             born September 5, 1891
Ruth Hunter                            born September 6, 1893
Lucy                                        born February 22, 1896
Dorothy                                   born January 21, 1898
Liberty Voshell "Libby"          born June 4, 1900
Two children born and died between 1886 and 1900

Florence May Clements Stevenson died before 1910, as George was listed as a widower in that census. 

After the death of his wife, George continued to live and work on the family farm until his death in 1938.

George H. Stevenson suffered a heart attack and died on January 28, 1938 in Union, Boone County, Kentucky.  He was 82 years old at his death.
