Hi Deborah,
         My great grandpa was James Reubin Stephens. He married Vianna M. (Annie) Skipper 3 June 1885. She died a few days after giving birth to my grandfather,George Benjamin Stephens.According to grandpa Stephens Annie was a fullblood cherokee.He claimed to be 7/8 cherokee.Annie's sister Mercy E. Skipper maried James' brother John A.. Stephens. Annie's parents were John Skipper and Sarah ?. They all lived in and around the Tallahassee, Monticello Florida area.

Headstones in Beth Page cemetary,Wakulla co.;
James C. Skipper--24 Jan. 1850- 4 Feb. 1922
John Nelson Skipper---1 Oct. 1855 - 27 Feb. 1914
Sallie Elizabeth Skipper -13 Oct. 1885 - 6 Oct. 19?
Sarah Rebecca Skipper - 14 Dec. 1889 - 21 Sept. 1918

Nina Leon Skipper -28 Sept 1879 - 25 Aug.1882
Lucy Lee Skipper -9 Oct. 1896 - 23 Nov. 1897

Many years ago there was a town called Magnolia in this same area. it was on the Wacissa river. When the rail road was put through north of the town supplies were no longer shipped by riverboat so the town died.There was a cemetary there called the Magnolia cemetary. At this point in time I have not been able to find it,however, I did find a list of names for this cemetary on line. these Skippers were listed;
James W. Skipper 31 Mar. 1822 - 12 Mar 1869 Leon Lt. Artillary[battle of natural Bridge]
Catherine A. 16 June 1836 - 2 Mar 1857 [Wife of J.W.]
Mary C. 7 Mar. 1833 - 10 Jan 1856 [ Born at New Port, dau. of Catherine]
James Levy - 27 Mar 1856 - 23 July 1857 [Son of Catherine]

On the 1860 census for Leon co. I found these Skippers listed on page 10.
R.? looks like L or S could be Q age 43
E.A. wife age 43
Dorcas age 24 F.
Martha " 19 F.
A.E. " 13 F.
A.? could be C. age 13 F.
R.E. age 11 F.
M. ? could be J. age 6 F.
C. ? could be L looks like the # 2 M.
Hope this helps.
Andy
