    Notes 
    • Abel Stevens followed his brother, (156) Roger Stevens Jr., into Augusta Twp., Leeds, Ontario in 1793, when it was unknown to whites and unsurveyed.He built a mill on Upper Beverly Lake, and a 31 mile road. He also discovered an iron ore mining area near by, the only one in the province, and laid out a blue print for its operation. He established a nonconformist church in 1803, based on the doctrine, "The Bible itself is sufficient for Faith & Practice; Church & State should be separate". He walked alone from one end of the province to the other, and back and forth to VT, bringing over 100 families to settle in Bastard and Kitley Twps. He was not discouraged by the mysterious death in of his older brother Roger, with whom he had closely collaborated throughout the Revolution, or with the loss to the family of that brothers valuable 400 acres north of the Rideau.
