My name is Linda Moorehead, and I live in Winchester, TN. I'm trying to find out who the parents were of my great, great grandfather William Henry Steed, Sr. He was born January 2, 1808 in Wilkes County, NC. He married Talitha Ann Noel in McMinn County, TN on 30 Oct 1839. Their children were born in Murray County, GA and were: William Henry, Rufus Camel, John Noel, James Quinn, and Elizabeth Harriet.
We are related to Rufus Noel Steed, born 30 Oct 1839 in Murray County, GA. He was a lawyer. I have a letter that states he believes we were related to Captain John Steed.
