Enoch A. Stephens b. 1868 is my dad's grandfather whom my dad never knew . Enoch A. Stephens died when my grandfather was but 2/3 years old .

In 1888 Enoch A. Stephens married Martha Elizabeth Anderson b.1869 Ar. , in Little River Co., Arkansas . They had two children :
Paralee Stephens b. 1890 Ar.
Enoch Jessie Stephens b. 1894 Ar.

In 1895 he signed a promissory note in Mar 1895. By Aug. 1896 Martha had remarried to Thomas B. Hamilton in Indian Territory ( Johnston Co., OK. ). We assume Enoch A. died either in Little River Co., Ar. or in Chickasaw Nation IT (OK)now Johnston County.

If anyone reads this and knows anything about the Stephens family in Little River Co., Arkansas , I'd sure appreciate any help .I would truely love to solve my Dad's line .

After WWII and eating Aif Force food , my dad refused to eat SOS made of Corned Beef , but he loved gravey . So my Mom fixed it her way . I have since added the jalapenos.



Brown 1 lb. of ground beef in skillet with onion and 1 glove of garlic if desired .After meat has started to sear also add 1 to 2 minced jalapenos to meat mixture . Salt & pepper to taste . After beef has cooked pour in colander to drain fat .
Take 2 to 3 Tb. bacon drippings and put into skillet . Enough flour to make a roux and salt & pepper . When mixed and all flour moistened add milk ( 2 to 3 C. depending on thickness desired )gradually stirring constantly( with slotted spoon ) until desired thickness is accomplished . Add meat and heat through .
Can be served over steamed rice or just plain bread . Really good

Note* You can also use one of the new cream gravey mixes now out on market . I find these work very well .

About 8 small turnips peeled and diced to 1/4 cubes and place in sauce pan and fill with water until water covers turnips . Add a 1/2 chopped onion ( no salt or salt pork (or bacon)at this time )and bring to a boil . Cook on med heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hour or until soft all way through .
Mean while dice salt pork and brown in small skillet and set aside .
After cooking add salt pork , salt and pepper to taste and about 1/2 tsp.sugar ( optional ).


For a long time I have tried to find out why after cooking turnips turn a brownish color . I've asked many older than myself with no results .
After having a craving for nice vegetables to eat , I had to have some turnips , greens and etc. I did some experimenting and I found that the large turnips are the ones that turn brown during cooking . Keeping to the smaller turnips about the size of a small tomato ( or tennis ball ) does the trick . After cooking you have a beautiful white turnip .

Cooking too long or possible adding salt pork too soon will also cause them to turn brown so beware .

********************************************


The Vinegar Pie was submitted by my Aunt Eula McGowan who died last Sept. 2002, and though I don't remember anyone but my grandmother Stephens making Vinegar Cobbler or anything sweet with vinegar, I can testify to my Aunt being a great cook.

I have tried the above Vinegar Rolls recipe and it is very good. This lady though in her late eighties is living.

Edwin Earnest Stephens WW1 1918, Died Michigan City, IN They said he drowned with the bends after lunch. But with the technology of today it is doubtful he drowned in this manner. More research needs to be done.
