Zebulon Vance Stephenson was born 10 September 1876 to John Stephenson and Martha Marie Cannady Stephenson. He was the fourth of seven children (but definitely had the coolest name of all his siblings).
He married Elisabeth "Bettie" Stephenson on 19 December 1900 in Johnston County, North Carolina. They had 9 children, according to my records:
Zebulon Vance, Jr.
A retired farmer, Zeb died on 5 March 1954 in Duplin County, NC. He is buried in Montlawn Cemetery in Raleigh, NC.
