The biography for Jason Stephens.
Born in Boise, ID USA after my parents finished college at Boise State University and got married. We spent 4 years in Boise and the Salt Lake City before moving to Portland, Oregon where I grew up from 5 yo until I went to college.
My mother grew up in Lewiston, ID where here mother (and her maternal 6 aunts and 2 uncles) were born to Eugene Bershaw and one of two mothers. Eugene’s father, Joseph Bershaw had been born as Joseph Bergeron in Ottawa, Canada (Baptized at St Jerome Cathedral outside of today’s Montreal by ~30 miles) and after immigrating to Idaho, USA his name somehow changed. My father’s parents where: Clarence (went by Steve) Stephens who we do not know a lot about, other than he was born in Texas and left for the navy at the youngest age possible after his father was supposedly killed after crashing into a tree (my grandfather felt he knew it was due to a life of drinking a gambling, but no way to know that..). He left his mother and sister (possibly other siblings) on the farm they lived on and never went back after the navy. My fathers mother’s maiden name was Weber, first name Opal. She had a sister Lillian (who I met multiple times). Opal’s sister, and parents all spoke German.

My great-grandmother on my paternal side was also a Weber. Her parents were from Switzerland and Germany. The family settled in St. Louis after immigrating.
