Direct descendants of Hiram Stevens who lived and worked in Monroe before the Civil War visited from California and Alabama April 11 to learn more about their relative. They are shown in front of the house Stevens owned in Monroe. Their brother Bill Stevens had inquired about his great-great-great-grandfather through the Green County Historical Society website, but was unable to make the trip due to a death in his family. Sherry Anderegg and Tom Mitchell did some research and were able to provide them with information regarding Stevens and provided the tour around the city and out into the country where Stevens also owned 40 acres of land west of Monroe. Stevens was an attorney, solicitor in chancery and a general land agent. He purchased the house and lot in February 1856. He helped organize a high school in 1854 and was a member of the committee to welcome the railroad to Monroe in 1858. He enlisted in Company F of the 31st Wisconsin Infantry in November 1863 as a second lieutenant and was promoted to first lieutenant during the Civil War. Shown in front of Stevens' former home from left are Sammy Atkins and his daughter Makayla, Kathee Rosenberg and Dianne and Robert Gonzalez. Hiram Stevens was Sammy's great-great-great-great-grandfather, Makayla's great-great-great-great-great-grandfather and Kathee and Dianne's great-great-great-grandfather. (Photo supplied)
