George Stevenson's bio is on p. 670
The paragraph about his parents (it is fabulous):

"John Stevenson, the father of our subject, was born near Fifeshire, Scotland, in 1798. He learned the business of making linen cloth, which he followed in his native land for many years. He was married to Elizabeth Duncan, who was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1800.

Soon after his marriage, Mr. Stevenson went to Ireland, where he carried on his business, and where his family of children were born. Those now living are: Jane, Thomas, John, Mary, Sarah, Rachael, Margaret and George. John is employed in the print works in Wappingers Falls, and Thomas is a clerk in a store in the same place.

On May 12, 1848, the father came to America, the family following him one year later. He settled in Wappingers Falls, and found employment in the cotton mills there. His death took place in 1868, and that of his wife in 1862. They were members of the Presbyterian Church, and in his political views Mr. Stevenson was in sympathy with the Republican party."2
