Hi! My name is Beth Stebbins. I would really like to hear from you. I have some great information about our family that I think you would like to hear!

Hi my name is Scott Stebbins from Massachusetts. I directly descend back to Rowland’s son Thomas Stebbins or Lt. Thomas. I find your pre-Stebbins history back to Ferrer’s and back to the Kings of Denmark fascinating. I’d love to know where you got all the info about the ancient history. I think it’s amazing. I have done a great deal of research of my own genealogy. I actually own a set of the Greenlee Stebbins genealogy that came from my grandfather Charles Henderson Stebbins. Love to hear from you.

Scott…you must be my cousin…I am also in line from Thomas, son of Rowland. We had a copy of the Greenlee books, but they were lost over time.

On a funny note…my father was Charles Rowland Stebbins and my name is Jeanne Stebbins Henderson.

Love to hear from any and all Stebbins family members.

I was doing a little bit of internet treasure hunting and found one of your ancestors found a meteorite near Shingle Springs. Interesting. It seems the name of the blacksmith is lost to history as best as I can tell. I wonder if anyone has searched for more parts of the meteorite? Just looking for ideas for metal detecting with the scout troop I lead. Thought you might find it interesting but you have probably seen this before since it looks like someone is interested in genealogy.


El Dorado County, California.

Here also El Dorado County and Los Angeles.

Latitude 38 38′ N., longitude 120 59′ W.

Iron. Ataxite, Cape iron group, of Brezina.

Found 1869-1870.

Weight, 38.5 kgs. (851bs.).

The first mention of this meteorite was by Shepard, 1 as follows:

For my knowledge of the meteoric iron of El Dorado County, I am indebted to Mr. Alfred Stebbins, librarian of
the Mercantile Library Association of San Francisco. A letter from him dated April 26 inclosed a few grams of
turnings obtained during the separation of a slice of the mass destined for the collection of Professor Whitney.

The mass is described by Mr. Stebbins as having the size and shape of a man’s head. It was found in a field,
and, as usual, was first taken to a blacksmith’s shop, where it was soon found to be an unmanageable subject for
working, and hence, fortunately, found its way into scientific hands. Its surface possesses the indentations common
to these bodies the crust or coating being partially oxidized. It weighs 85 pounds.

I find the turnings to have a specific gravity of 7.80, which may perhaps be a trifle above what the mass possesses,
as it is presumable that the turnings have suffered a slight condensation in the process of separation.

I don’t know how my great-grandmother happened to have this, but she passed on to me in the 1950’s with some other things not related to your family, an original painting of your family crest – the one with the blue griffin between three crosses.
On the back is hand written ” Stebbins Crest, and Coat of Arms, a family of great anticquity in the Kingdom of Great Britain, the eldest branch residing Yorkshire, desended from Sir Thomas Stebbins Baronet of England where family flourished in time King William Third – Copied by Army & Navy Coop Society from copy lent by (three illegible initials) London July 18 / (18)84 £1.8.6″
If you would like to have this, I can send it to you from here in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Quite a web-site. I didn’t know it existed. I am a great-grandson of Albert Howard Stebbins who invented the Stebbins Ore Separator and was a circuit judge in California. Been to Stebbing many times.
