    • Why Henry moved to Canada with his brothers Roger and Abel Stevens and more:

      VERMONT DURING THE REVOLUTION <http://www.optonline.com/comptons/ceo/00141_A.html>
      Vermont had been claimed by both New York and New Hampshire, and was the scene of a bitter dispute in the early 1770's. At that time, Ethan Allen and "the Green Mountain Boys" actively fought the New Yorkers, who were oppressing Vermonters who had received land grants from New Hampshire At one point, the Governor of New York laid a bounty of £100 on Allen's head. The two parties briefly put aside their differences with the outbreak of the American Revolution, though, and Allen and his men rendered useful service to the Patriot cause -- including an abortive attack on Quebec, in which (625a) Benjamin and (313ii) Ephraim Stevens were captured.
      In 1777, Vermont declared itself an independent republic. When the Continental Congress refused to recognize her independence, Allen negotiated with British Maj. James Rogers about the possiblity of making Vermont a Canadian province. For this, he was accused of treason, though the charge was later dropped. After the Treaty of Paris, hostilities continued in Vermont, up until her admission as a state in 1791. According to Dr. Stephen Stevens, grandson of (313i) Abel Stevens, "The New Yorkers and the French and Indians destroyed everything possible, burned homes, took people captive, murdered many, until it became a fearful place to live in...." According to Stevens, this was the reason so many of his family moved to Canada, where (156) Roger Stevens Jr. had received land.
