The Stevenson Family is Abby Stevenson' family. They are originally from Long Island, New York, but moved to Stoneybrook, CT when Abby was 13. They make their first appearance in Kristy and the Dirty Diapers.


The extended Stevenson family is rather large. In Abby in Wonderland, the family was building a family tree to share at the party. One set of Abby's great grandparents on her mother's side are Fanny and Ira Weiss. Abby's great grandmother, Fanny, had twelve other siblings. Her daughter, Elsie Goldberg, had moved to the United States in the 1920s from Germany. Nine of her siblings stayed in Germany and died in the Holocaust. One of Elsie's sisters, Marta, was about Abby's age when she died.

The Stevensons live two doors down from Kristy at 1206 McLelland Road, next door to Tabitha Porter (Morbidda Destiny). Behind them lives Mr. Finch (briefly) and Ms. Fielding in Abby and the Notorious Neighbor.

They moved from Long Island with all new furniture and decorations. Anna and Abby Stevenson go to Stoneybrook Middle School because neither Stoneybrook Day School or Kelsey Middle School have an orchestra for Anna to play in in Kristy and the Dirty Diapers.

Together they hosted a decorate your own cupcake booth in Welcome to the BSC, Abby for the carnival.

In Mary Anne and the Music Box Secret, Abby mentions that her grandfather didn't know what to do with himself once he stopped working. Her grandmother used to kick hm out of the house because he'd just wander around complaining about how bored he was. So he'd take long walks in the neighborhood. Kristy cuts her off from saying anymore. It's unclear which side of the family Abby is talking about.
