Ross Stevens Farm
The Ross Stevens land was first owned by the United States government and bought from it by George Burch and Ramson Paterson in 1866. In 1873, it was sold to George Burrows. In 1900, Chauncy Stevens, father of Ross, bought it from a lumber company. Chauncy then built a house and barn. In 1903, he married Maud Turner of Verb township. In 1907, Ross was born. He lived at home with his parents and helped them farm, until 1931, when he married Innis Snyder, a Clark county school teacher and daughter of Grant Snyder.
Over the years, Chauncy built new buildings and improved the old ones. In 1936, Ross bought 80 acres of joining timber land from George Mueller. Later, he sold this to Art Neustedt. In 1936, Mrs. Chauncy Stevens passed away. Ross and his father continued to farm together until Chauncy retired.
In 1939, a daughter, Dona Lee, was born to the Ross Stevens'. She is now married to Andy Balciar. They live in Marshfield, Wis., where he works for Badger Consolidated and she teaches school. They have one daughter, Brenda.
