Surnames and Family Research Forum
Haven't posted in awhile, looking for clear up a brick wall. My 3rd greatgrandparents were taken care of a niece, Mary, in the 1880 Census. I found in the Freedman Records of my ggggrandfather trying to get custody of her. The last name is Steptoe and she is the niece of my ggggrandmother. Actually found that there was another sister, Amanda. Have trouble finding these 2 ladies as they seem to disappeared after the 1880, 1900 census.
