Stephen was a partner with his father in a saw mill. He was described as a heavy-set, rather handsome man. He was noted for his open-handedness to anyone in need and for his wit and ability as a raconteur, and as an inveterate practical joker.

A History of McDonough County, Illinois told a story of his inability to turn away any traveller applying for food or shelter. It told of a traveller and his family of four or five children, caught, as night came on, in one of the torrential rainstorms which afflict that section of the country and applied to the “Major” for lodging. Stephen P. told him that he was welcome to stay, if they could put up with the poor fare he was able to offer them. The man was apologetic for being forced to inflict himself and family on one in such circumstances, but that he and his wife could make out if there was only enough extra food for his hungry children. Stephen continued to lament his circumstances during the preparations by the female contingent for supper. When it was announced, he led the people into a room with a table heaped with fried chicken and all of the other comestibles found on a well-to-do farmer's table.

Stephen's will bequeaths to his wife, Mary, land in New Salem, McDonough County, Illinois. Also to daughter, Clara Stephens, son-in-law, William M. Harlan, daughter, Eliza Ann Toland, children of daughter, Amanda Booker, daughter, Mary Wilcox, daughter Talitha Harlan, daughter, Esther Harlan, daughter, Elzira Burleigh, and grandchildren, Thomas Jones, Margaret and Mary Thomas, Fanny Jennings, Margareta Baer and daughter Jane's children by Thomas H. Jones.

A Memoir of Stephen Powell Yocum written by Louella Burleigh Thompson--1954/55:

The Yocum family came from Holland and settled in Kentucky. Stephen (my grandfather) was born in 1800 and of the 4th generation. His mother or grandmother was of Scotch-Irish descent. Stephen had sisters and two were redhaired and one brother, George who never married. He had a large plantation and slaves. He died befor the Civil War but before he died he gave to the head of each slave family a few acres of land and their freedom.

Stephen was in partnership with his father in a saw mill. He married a beautiful woman and when there were two little girls he divorced his wife because of adultery.

He was a major in the Black Hawk War of 1832 and Abe Lincoln was a colonel in the same division. After President Lincoln's election, grandfather visited him in Springfield and Lincoln recognized him and said, `Well Major you bossed me and now it is my turn to boss you.'
