Hi Connie,
Thanks for writing. I located an Alfred A. Eveland (b.1856 - d.1930). He was the son of Peter Eveland and Rebecca (last name unknown). Peter Eveland was my GGG-Grandfather John's brother. Alfred's Siblings were:
Catherine (Kate)

It is possible that these brothers and sisters (including Alfred) were all stepchildren to Peter Eveland except for Hiram and Alvira.

The information I have lists Alfred's wife as Bernice (b.1864 - d.3/24/1881). It's not clear if he had any children with Bernice, at least I don't have any info on any. He then married Lenora (b.1856 - d.6/1/1899) and had at least two children: Atta B. Eveland and an unknown infant. I don't have any info on a wife named Stella but if you got that info from census or obituaries then I'm apt to believe it. Stella could have been a middle name, as could Lenora. I'd recommend searching the 1930 census for his widow.

I hope that there is something there that you can use. I would love it if you would keep me up to date on what you find.... seeing we're cousins and all.

Take care,
