I don't have anything on your Reuben, but I do have a Stevens in my
database. She is Ann Stevens, born circa 1592, possibly from Suffolk,
England, who married John Bishop, circa 1610. They ended up in Guilford,
New Haven CT. She died circa Apr 1676. This is pretty far afield and the
information is shakey because it is from an LDS ancestral file with dates
that don't make sense. But these early people sometimes came over as
interrelated families, so there may have been an early Stevens presence in
CT, maybe in the Guilford area, from which your Reuben descended.
