The oldest PROVEN record I have in my Stegall line(the most common spelling tho' it's also spelled Stiegel) is for a John Stegal born July 7 1758 in Brunswick Co., Va. He married Susannah Bennenfield Dec. 10 1785 ;n N.C. and they had a son. Fredrick Sr. who was born in N. C, but moved to Abington,Il. after he married Sussannah Sara Warren.Frederich was my gr gr grandfather. Do these people hook up with any of your family?Seems likely.
