Looking for Descendants of Wilhelm Christian Stephan

I am looking for descendants of Wilhelm Christian Stephan, born March 1754 somewhere in Germany. Wilhelm later anglicized his name to William Stevens (also spelled Stephens).

Wilhelm married Margaret Stolz, the daughter of Jacob and Juliana Stolz, at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lancaster, PA, in 1780 or 1781. They had a number of children, including two sons, Jacob and William.

Wilhelm fought in the American Revolution and received land in Brooke County, Virginia (now West Virginia), for his service. His land was near that of Christian Snedeker.

My gggg-grandmother was Amanda Snedeker.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
