John- First I suggest you search the Stegall Forum. There is much more info posted on that site. I don't know if this is your line or not but there was a William Stegall b.1770 that migrated from Anson Co. NC to Tn. and then on to Fayette Co. Il. (wife unknown). He was the son of Moses Stegall. William had a son named John Fanning Stegall 1808-1852 married to Mary "Polly" Raiburn who also lived in Fayette Co. Il. John Fanning had a son I have listed as T William Stegall b 1833. I do not list a wife. I believe T William was born in Overton, Tn and went to Il with his family. This T William was in Fayette Il and about the right age to POSSIBLY be the person you are looking for.
