(00-15)  ESTEP:
Looking for information on Reece and Charlotte ESTEP.  Where did they live in 1900, 1910 or 1920?  They had at least one child named Shadrock Glenn ESTEP.  When and where did they marry?  Were there any other children?  Any information would be helpful.

[Reece ESTEP is listed on page 261 of the THOMAS ESTEP, SR.... book as Reece T. ESTEP, born 1866, son of Shadrach ESTEP [J264] and Martha ELKINS, of (Floyd Co.) KY, Wayne Co., WV and Lincoln Co., WV.  Reece married Charlotte SEXTON.]

I am an ESTEP descendant and believe my line to be:
Richard ESTEP, b. 1664 [not sure if he married a CALVERT or RAMSEY]
  Thomas ESTEP, b. c1709, m. Mary ______ (MD)
     William ESTEP, b. c1733, m. Sarah ______ (MD)
        Zachariah ESTEP, b. 1761, m. [unknown]  (MD)
           John ESTEP, b. c1785, m. Elizabeth FISHER (MD)
              John ESTEP, b. c1812, m. Mary Ann DAUGHERTY (MD) - my gggrandfather
                 John ESTEP, b. c1837, m. Eleanora TRIM (MI) - my ggrandfather
I am a novice at this, having just started searching a short time ago but here is my problem.  John ESTEP, born in 1812, is not listed on any family tree that I have viewed as a son of John ESTEP and Elizabeth  FISHER.  I have a copy of a 100 year old diary written by Charles ESTEP, son of William ESTEP and grandson of John and Elizabeth.  Charles refers to my John ESTEP as his uncle.  How can I prove that John and Elizabeth were parents of my John.  Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

[The THOMAS ESTEP, SR.... book lists this family on page 429 and listed the children of John and Elizabeth (FISHER) ESTEP as:  John, Zachariah, Joshua, Catherine HIGH, Jacob Emmet, Elizabeth PLANT and William Henry.  Unfortunately no sources were provided for the children other than the 1850 Seneca Co., OH census, which listed widow Elizabeth EASTSTEP [sic] with her son William and a 5 year old John PLANTS (grandson?).  This family was also listed on 1810 and 1820 Baltimore Co., MD censuses, 1830 Frederick Co., MD census, and 1840 Seneca Co., OH census.  John (Sr.) died between 1840-1850.]

(00-18)  ESTEP - SMITHY - WAGES:
Seeking information on parents and family of John ESTEP, born 11 Feb 1853 (in Clay Co., KY?) who married Tempy SMITHY (b. 1 May 1865) from KY.  Their known son, Samuel ESTEP (30 Mar 1904 - Apr 1980), married Lottie WAGES and they had 12 children, one being Alfred ESTEP (26 Jun 1946 - Jul 1985).  Would appreciate any help.

Looking for information on the following families.
Louis Daniel ESTEP was born 3 Nov 1886 in AR and died 22 Feb 1971 in OK.  He was first married to Myrtle PRATTER / PRATER (b c1896? in Strickland, AR) sometime between 1910-1912.  They had two children:
*James ESTEP (24 Mar 1913 OK - 21 Apr 1970 TX) married first to Margaret Lucille BEAVERS; had six children and then they divorced.  Married second to Kathryn THOMPSON and they had six children then divorced.  Married third to Georgia Ann ______.  James or Bill (that's what he was called) was my mother-in-law's father (from the first marriage).  She never knew him.  I think she said she remembers seeing him two times.  She was actually raised by foster parents.  We have just recently been in contact with the children of the second marriage.  He abandoned both families so no one knows very much about him.  We do know he spent some time in the AZ prison (maybe in the 1930s...not sure).
*Hazel ESTEP (14 May 1915 AR - 26 Jan 1995 CA) married first to ______ ROACH and second to Delbert GARNER.
Louis and Myrtle must have been divorced by May 1916 because nine months later (Feb 1917) Myrtle has a child by another man.
Louis' death certificate says he was married to a Lora MARTN at the time of his death.  And that he was a retired shipyard worker.  He is buried at Little Cemetery in Little, OK.  His parents are listed as John ESTEP (b. ?, d. ?) and Lucinda LEWALLER (b. ?, d. ?).
I found them on the 1910 census of Seminole Co., OK:
ESTEP, John -- head; m; w; 52; married 25 yrs.; TN TN TN
    "      Sinda -- wife; f; w; 42; married 25 yrs.;7 children 3 living; AR, WS(?), IL
    "      Lewis -- son; m; w; 21; single; AR
    "      Charley -- son; m ; w; 20; single; AR
If anyone has information on this family, please e-mail me.  Thank you.

Looking for connections to William EASTEP who married Mamie SAUNDERS and they had a son, Harold EASTEP, who married Bernice LITTLE.  I am not sure when Harold married but my father was born in 1936.  Bernice was from Cheshire, OH and my father was born in Middleport, OH.  All of these places are on or near the Ohio River.  I know the family spent time in Portsmouth area as well as Jackson, OH.  I was born in Columbus, OH, but raised near Cincinnati.  I think my father had some family there also.  Thanks.
