Leaner Stevens
I've changed the spelling of the first name from Leanner to Leaner based on the following points:

Argument for "Leanner":
The text in Find-a-Grave is prefaced with the word 'possible', suggesting that the info is uncertain: "Spencer was the son of Sampson Stevens and possible Leanner Adams."

Argument for "Leaner":
'Leaner' is used twice in the notes regarding a property dispute where Lerner and Sampson Stevens "who are complainants against the other heirs of Abraham Adams and involve sale of land and slaves owned":
"Leaner Stephens the wife of Sampson Stevens"
and
"Leaner married Sampson Stephens"
