Bienville Parish, Louisiana, census with 7 of their children. An 8th daughter, Sarah, was born in 1872.

with whom he had one more child, a son, Moses, in Sep 1879. Lewis passed away in 1895. Both he and
Isabella are buried in the Pleasant Grove cemetery in Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

Lewis and Isabella's 5th child, son Clayton Alexander Stevens, married Susan Elizabeth "Lizzie" Diamond,
on 3 Jan 1897. The couple moved from Bienville to Red River Parish after the 1900 census where they
