Welcome to G2G, Larry!

That's a little thin.  smiley  Do you have any other info?  Time frame, first name, relatives?

Hi, Larry, and welcome to WikiTree!

Larry, do you have a profile up for J. Stevenson? Do you know of a spouse? Can you give us a time frame? Any of these would be a great help to know where to look. Thanks!

I hope your experience on WikiTree is as profitable and enjoyable as mine.
We would need a little more info, like date of birth or death if you know it, first name or other family members. Thanks.

Thanks.  Here's his FindaGrave:

Here's a man old enough to be him in 1830:

He has a WikiTree profile:

James Stevenson

It needs sources and a biography and lots of work.  I think Capt Stevenson deserves it!
