Richard Stevens was a noted hunter and trapper. He married Sally Ambrose, and settled in Montgomery County in 1831. The first day after his arrival in Montgomery he killed six deer, and during his residence in the County he killed 400 deer, 40 bears, and so many wild cats, raccoons, etc., that he could not keep an account of them. He had six children Hiram A., Emily, Willis, Lucretia, Virginia, and Joseph. Hiram A. married Sarah A. Garrett, and lives in Montgomery County. Emily married Evans B. Scale, and also lives in Montgomery County. The rest of the children settled in other States.
