Re: /francis geoge steger
A Samuel Steger/Stegar, shown as age 63, was living in the home of Gabriel B. Peaseley, Junior and his wife Caroline Sanderson, per the 1850 Cumberland Co., VA census (so that Samuel Steger was born about 1787, if the census data was correct).Maybe he was the same Samuel Steger that your post shows as having been born in 1787.Gabriel B. Peaseley, Junior was the son of Gabriel B. Peaseley, Senior and his second wife Judith Davidson (Gabriel "Senior's" first wife had been Tabitha Davidson, who was an aunt of Judith Davidson's).
Also living in the above Peaseley home in 1850 were two of the children of Judith's brother Reuben F. Davidson (Reuben had married Lucy Peaseley, who was a daughter of Gabriel "Senior" and Tabitha Davidson....so Reuben married a daughter of his own aunt) named Martha Davidson and Thomas Davidson (Reuben and his wife Lucy had both died in by mid-1840s).Finally. there were three young children of Gabriel "Junior" and Caroline's also in the home in 1850.
In 1860, the above Thomas Davidson (then age 26) was living in the home of John Perratt Steger (born 1815) over in "next-door" Powhatan, Co., VA.This John Perratt Steger was a son of Isham Steger and Locky Boatwright.I have no proof, but it APPEARS that the mother of Reuben Davidson and his sister Judith Davidson might have been a Miss Boatwright (who married Philemon Davidson, my gggg-grandfather).The Davidsons and the Boatwrights were neighbors in Cumberland Co., VA, and in 1786, Philemon Davidson deeded some land to Daniel Boatwright.The Boatwright/Steger marriage and the referenced possible Boatwright/Davidson marriage might have been the only "direct connection" between the Davidsons and the Stegers....but I am not sure about that.Comments on any of the above?
