Hmm. I have a Elizabeth Stepp living in Hendersonville, NC with and nextdoor to Hezekiah Drake, in the 1850 and 1860 census'. they had numerous children, proven with bastard bonds. Although her Father is not proven James, just suspected, as he lived nearby. Since those are such common names, it is possible that we both have Elizabeths and James', just different families. Where did your Elizabeth live. This Elizabeth shows born in NC.
