I am looking for any information on Clarissa STEVENS, born February 7,
1775, in New Lebanon, Columbia County NY, She married to GARNER JOLLS,
born May 23 1770, Bristol Rhode Island, Son of Ebenezer JOLLS, and Molly
Clarissa and Garner came to Cattaraugus County, with their son ABEL
Jolls, born c.1799, and Abel built the first frame house in Perrysburg
Catt. Co NY. The cornerstone of this building is on his burial plot in
the JOLLS Cemetery, on JOLLS Road in Perrysburg, with a bronze marker
imbedded in it.
Also there, is Clarissa STEVENS Jolls, there is a very old, but still
readable tombstone for her, and a newer marker, that reads
"CLARISSA STEVENS JOLLS

died April 18 1850. Only the name Garner is visible.
