"Little Alec," Vice-President of the Confederacy, was born nearby in a log cabin Feb. 11, 1812, son of Andrew B. & Margaret Grier Stephens, a poor farm family. At his parents' death he was educated by an uncle, Gen. A. W. Grier, at Washington, and at Franklin College (U. of Ga.) and was admitted to the Bar in 1834. He served as state legislator and senator from ?36 to ?42, as congressman from ?43 to ?49 and again in ?55. After the War he was elected U. S. Senator but was not allowed to take his seat. He served in Congress from '73 till ?82 and was Governor of Georgia at his death in 1883. "He was strong by his moral intrepidity."
