      I feel sure we are related from way back. The oldest Stepp that I can find related or connected to me is Fredrick Stepp born 1783 in VA, died in Sept 1857 in Warren County, TN. (I have a copy of his will)

      He was married to Mary Polly Mayse [Editor's Note: marriage was performed in Bath Co.,VA, 29 Aug 1804]. She died in 1858 in Warren County, TN. They may have had only two boys: William Carroll Stepp and Richard McDonald Stepp.

      Their children were plus more:

      Nancy Stepp married Wm R Nunley,
      Richard McDonald Stepp married to Ester (my great-great grandfather),
      Catherine,
      William Carroll Stepp born Dec 14,1829 died 5/8/1899 in Grundy County TN (70 yrs old and more children.

      I believe he, Wm. Carroll, may have had at least 3 wives from what I have picked up, 1st-Malinda, 2nd Nancy McGee and 3rd Amanda. I believe there may have been a few William Carroll Stepp's. My great grandfather William C Stepp (C for Carroll??)

      Son of Richard McDonald Stepp born 10/31/1851 died 10/16/1883-lived 31 years- He was married to Cynthia Nunley. Their son John Smith Stepp was my grandfather born about 1883 or 1884 I bleieve. My dad was also born in Grundy County TN.

      My dad had a brother (my uncle) whose name was also William Carroll Stepp-I dont have his birth and death dates but I can get them. He was probably born in Grundy County TN also my guess to be in the late 1800's or early 1900's. He was married to Ora McGilvery-I know all of that family. He had no sons to live to be grown.

      My dad was born in 1909 His family moved to Texas shortly after Dad's birth from Grundy County TN. My guess would be that your family branched off from Fredrick Stepp's family at William Carroll Stepp born 12/14/1829 and mine from Richard McDonald Stepp born 8/21/1816 (brothers) I really dont know that-just a guess.

      If you can send me a mailing address (maybe a Post Office Box address so everyone in the whole world could not get your Street address) I will send you a copy of Fredrick Stepps will, He was my 3 times great granddad and may be your 4th or 5th. Needless to say the Will is very interesting!
