Stephen moved to Dobbs County, North Carolina from his birthplace prior to 1790. He settled on Goff Swamp which is
on the present line between Greene and Wilson Counties. He died there in 1822.
The 1800 federal census shows Stephen and his wife with six male and seven female children. The writer has a copy of a letter from Tracy Eason which says that his great-grandfather (Stephen) had eighteen children, nine male and nine female. This letter was dated 27 July 1958. Mrs. Otera Martin of Huntington, Tennessee says that she was told by her mother that her great-great-grandfather (Stephen) had sixteen children, eight male and eight female, and that they were assigned in pairs to look after each other. The Courthouse for Dobbs-Greene County was burned about 1875 and records are not available for additional study. Mrs. T.R. Eason of Texarkana, Texas has an old Eason Family bible that was printed in 1804 and dates as far back as 1758 are recorded herein.
