Stephens, Joshua Chapman, was born in Canisteo, May 30, 1816. Nathan Stephens, his father, was born December 8, 1783, and May 11, 1790, came with his father, Jedediah Stephens, to Canisteo and settled on a farm of 400 acres. He married Rachael, daughter of Elisha Gilbert of Addison, by whom he had five children, Elisha G., Jedediah, H. M., Ebenezer C., and Franklin. He lived on a farm, known as lot No. 10, 1st division, until his death, which occurred April 4, 1862.

Three of the Sons are carpenters and joiners, and James A. is at home on the farm. A fact worthy of notice is that not one of the Sons weighs less than 200 lbs., and is said to be the strongest and most robust family in the town. Mr. Stephens has held the office of supervisor and other minor offices, and is a member of Morning Star Lodge of Masons, No. 65, also of Steuben Chapter.
