(02-01) ESTEP - ADAMS:
I am a direct descendant of Sarah A. ESTEP and Thomas ADAMS. The only information I have is that they were married in MD around 1814. Birth date for Sarah is about 1781 and for Thomas the same. I am seeking any information on either individual.
I am looking for information on Calvin Jones ESTEP, born 1832 in Davie Co., NC. He is our "grandfather" but we cannot find out who his parents are.
[Calvin J. Estep is listed on pages 709-710 of the ESTEP, Thomas Sr... book. He married first to Rachel Miles 1854 in Knox Co., TN and second to Lavina Anne Troutman 1857 in Jefferson Co., TN. He died c1914 in Reynolds Co., MO. Calvin's death certificate has his father as Samuel and the informant was his grandson. Mrs. Henry Estep, who sent the information to Mary Mellichampe, one of the book's authors, that she had some doubts about Samuel as Calvin's father.]
(02-03) ESTEP - COLDIRON - WADKINS / WATKINS:
I am trying to find the grandparents of my mother. Her mother was Mary ESTEP and was told she was a COLDIRON adopted by WADKINS or WATKINS? Mary married Henry ESTEP and they had: Sina (b. 8 May 1908), Emma, Vannie, Cora, and John. Mom had mentioned Margaret and said she was just called "Granny Margaret." Whose mother was she? My mother was second cousin, I think she said, to Lundy ESTEP. Not sure where he comes in at. Would appreciate anything you could send. Thank you.

(02-07) ESTEP - BROADDUS - PORTWOOD:
My great-grandfather was a man by the name Charles ESTEP. He married Nancy PORTWOOD. For some reason he was reared by a man named Pleas (Pleasant?) BROADDUS, and went by the name BROADDUS to the extent that my grandmother and great-grandmother were known as BROADDUS, even legally. I know he was killed in some kind of accident, either drowning or industrial. Great-granddad had two children: Nancy BROADDUS and Pleas BROADDUS, Jr. Pleas Jr. was epileptic and died when about 19 to 25 years old. He was apparently killed (pushed) in a train / pedestrian accident. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(02-08) ESTEP - COCANOUGHER - CUNNINGHAM:
Does anyone know anything about Leonard Leslie ESTEP who married Iva Lena COCANOUGHER? They had a daughter, Helen Louise ESTEP, who maried Carl Clovis CUNNINGHAM.

My great-grandmother was Nancy Margaret ESTEP(or ESTEPP). She was married to Robert Washington MORRIS. Her parents were John ESTEP and Annie ASHER.

(2-13) ESTEP - MATHEWS - WHITTINGTON:
Searching for parents of Katharine ESTEP who married Daniel MATHEWS Aug 1818 in Bond Co., IL. It is thought she was the daughter of Elijah and Rebecca (WHITTINGTON) ESTEP but in reading the will for this Elijah ESTEP she is not mentioned. Catharine MATHEWS is listed on the 1850, 1860 and 1870 census in Hancock Co., IL. Daniel MATHEWS died in 1846 so he doesn't appear after the 1840 census. Any help you can give me will be much appreciated.
