Anna Stevens (Damaris4 Whitney, Moses3, Richard2, John1), daughter of Cyprian and Damaris4 (Whitney) Stevens, was born 19 Mar 1732/3, Rutland, MA, and died 24 Mar 1811, Guilford, VT.

She married, 5 Feb 1755, Holden, MA, Samuel Nichols, son of William and Abigail (Kendall) Nichols. He was born 15 Feb 1728, Reading, MA, and died 13 Sep 1777, Guilford, VT.

Samuel Nichols, sometimes called "Esq.", is mentioned repeatedly in the town meeting records of Guilford, VT, along with his sons Ephraim and Jonas.

Children of Samuel and Anna (Stevens) Nichols:

i. Ephraim Nichols, b. 3 Sep 1755, Guilford, VT (also recorded as 21 Nov 1756, Rutland, VT); m. ca. 1783, Abigail -----.
ii. Samuel Nichols, b. 15 Jan 1757, Guilford, VT; d. 1842; m. 3 Aug 1779, Guilford, VT, Rhoda Carpenter.
iii. Jonas Nichols, b. 27 Nov 1758, Guilford, VT; d. 1 Apr 1843, Perry, Lake County, OH; m. ca. 1778, Putnam, Washington Co., NY, Elizabeth Smith.
iv. Anna Nichols, b. 19 Oct 1760, Guilford, VT; supposedly the same Anna Nichols who d. 16 Sep 1840, and who m. Sep 1774, Bridport, VT, Abel Rice. [NOTE: The tender age of this bride makes this identification questionable.]
v. Abigail Nichols, b. 1752, Halifax, VT; no further record.
vi. Asa Nichols, b. 1754, Halifax, VT; no further record.
vii. Ebenezer Nichols, b. 5 Nov 1755, Halifax, VT; no further record.
viii. Lucinda Nichols, b. 1758, Halifax, VT; no further record.
ix. Thaddeus Nichols, b. 1760, Halifax, VT; no further record.

NOTE: The dates for the last five children either are before the parents' marriage, or conflict with the dates of the first four children. Furthermore, they were born in a different town than that in which the parents apparently resided. This casts some doubt that they were, in fact, the children of these parents.
