Henry Wilburne Stevens
Stevens served as a private under Captain Nathan H. Luse's Company of Infantry, which was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel David Neilson in the Mississippi Territory. He was enlisted from January 2, 1815 through March 31, 1815.
After being discharged Stevens briefly practiced law in the Natchez District with William E. Parker, a fellow veteran of the war. In 1816 he moved to Montgomery County, Alabama ...
Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive. Researchers and staff have identified students through letters, diaries, family histories and genealogies, and town histories as well as catalogues of students printed in various years. Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students. The history of both schools and the identification of the students who attended them owe credit to the early 20th century research and documentation efforts of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel and Samuel Fisher, and the late 20th century research and documentation efforts of Lynne Templeton Brickley and the Litchfield Historical Society staff.
