  • Notes 
    • “Nina Electa Stephens-von Rosenberg possessed something of the spirit of her pioneer parents and grandparents, for when she was only nineteen she married and left her home in the far northwest to begin life in Austin, Texas, as the beautiful and charming young wife of Frederick Charles von Rosenberg. Her quiet charm, gentleness of character and agreeable personality soon won for her a warm place in the large family connections of her husband.

      “Her father was Dr. John Livingston Stephens, who moved from his home state of Pennsylvania to begin a medical career in the progressive western town of Boise, Idaho. He became a prosperous and eminent physician, establishing a sanatorium at Warm Springs, Idaho. He maintained a beautiful home in the city, which was furnished in the manner of his ancestral home in Pennsylvania.

      “Her mother’s parents were pioneers, also of the west. For, although they had been prosperous plantation owners in Louisiana and Alabama before the Civil War, cultured and educated in the professions-they moved to Idaho after the close of the war. Her maternal grandfather, John Hoyt Taylor Greene, supported the Confederacy and was a blood cousin of General Nathaniel Greene of American Revolutionary War fame. Her maternal grandmother was a Wilcox, descended from some of the distinguished old families of Alabama and South Carolina.

      “When her mother died, Nina was only five years old. From that time until she was about thirteen, when her father remarried, she made her home with her grandparents. She was confirmed in the Episcopal Church at the age of fourteen. About the time she was sixteen her stepmother, of whom she was very fond, took her to Washington, D. C., to place her in school. It was there in 1888 that Nina met her future husband.

      “Perhaps her most outstanding characteristics are her cheerfulness and kindness. Her soft brown eyes, delicate, regular features and lovely wavy hair seem to suit perfectly her small stature. The atmosphere of her home reflects this cheerfulness and even temper, tact and hospitality. Her son and daughter, Frederick and Esther, live with her in the family home.” [11]
