Michelle, I saw your posting and am praying that you might be able to steer me to someplace where I can find my ancestor. Thomas Steerman, b. abt 1775-1780 in VA died in 1827 in Daviess County, KY. He married Nancy Briant, daughter of Zachariah Briant of Amherst County, VA. After Thomas died, Nancy stayed in Daviess County, KY for a while and then moved across the river to Sullivan Indiana, where she lived until she passed in 1893. Her children were documented in a lawsuit brought about by an argument between her father, Zachariah and her deceased husband. Therefore the children of this marriage were immortalized in the lawsuit. They were Elizabeth and Sarah Steerman who married Sinnett Brothers, Humphries Steerman who settled in Sullivan, IN by the 1840 census and had a wife Polly, William Clayton Steerman,Elvira Steerman (who married George Samples),Malinda and Eliza Jane Steerman who were with their mother in Sullivan, as dare I say it, spinsters.
