I am looking for info about the STEELE family who lived in Williamson
Co. about 1800-20. There probably were 4 sons: James, Moses, James,
& William plus maybe Mary and Martha. They probably migrated to
southern Mississippi (Vicksburg & Marion County) in late 1820's. One
of the sons (who a stroke about 1820) may be the father of Rev.
Elijah STEELE, (b. 1814 in Williamson) a well-loved Methodist
Episcopal minister in southern Mississippi until his death
in New Orleans (1841). Did one of the four brothers have a daughter
Minerva, born in Mississippi about 1818?
This has been a brick wall for a dozen or more years.
