Of course, expecting a marriage bond was just asking for way tooo much. There was a minister's return, but no bond. So, went to the will books(got my curiosity going now!!)
Interesting enough, the wills of John Steffey and Michael Steffey were probated the same day 13 Jun 1836.
Wythe Co Courthouse, Will Book 4, pp 321-322.

Michael Steffey names the following: wife Christina; Sons John, Amos, Reubin, and my 4 dayghters-Catherine, Elizabeth, Mary, and Susannah.

John Steffey names the following: sons- John & David, daughters oldest-Caty Dutting(Dutton), Elizabeth Phillipy, and youngest daughter-unnamed.

So, looks like John, because Michael was very specific-my 4 daughters.
Hope this helps, Janie
