Jill Franklin Hicks wrote 18 Nov 2003: I too have ran into the same 2 George Russell Stephens, and there are 2 George Russell Stephens, born about the same time. This is what I have came up with. Della Velma Franklin who married George Russell Stephens is the daughter of David Franklin and Leona Lone Hampton. On the 1930 Overton Co., TN. Census, you will find George Russell, Della Velma and her mother in the same household. On the 1920 Fentress Co., TN. Census: George Russell and Della Velma are living next door to Leona Franklin, Leona has a Nova C. Smith in her household that is her neice., Since Nova is the daughter of John and Armildia Franklin Smith, Leona must have been the widow of Armilida's Brother David Franklin. (This is my belief anyway, since David Franklin died between 1900 and 1910, there is no census showing them as a family. David Franklin died shortly after Della was born.) When I was in Jamestown a couple of months ago, Opal and I called a Decendant of this family, and she said that the George Russell Stephen that married Della Velma Franklin was the son of Marion Collier and Julia Tucker Stephens. The lady I talked to was Nola Alma Stephens d/o Caleb David and Ermine Smith Stephens. I think that she is the neice of George Russell and Della Velma.
