William Stegall, b. 1841 in Overton, TN +Catherine Kepner, m. 1865 Fayette, IL --moved to MN, dau Mary Elenore Stegall (my 2g-gmother)
I'm trying to piece together William Stegall's origins, and many of you have links to Fayette, IL Stegalls. His death cert. lists "William and Lavinia Stegall" as parents; it is my belief that father William (1802-1849) was the son of William (1770-1855), grandson of Moses (1735-1840). In 1850, my William is living with the extended family of Solomon Stegall in Fayette, IL. - because of his parents' deaths? I think Solomon was his uncle, but when Solomon and family leave IL for TX, William (and possibly a sister, Martha) stay behind in IL. Would love to have someone help fill in blanks or point me in the right direction with this family.
