The Elizabeth Stepp I am interested in was born abt 1820 in Hendersonville NC. She was not married to Hezekiah Drake but they had six children together, as was proven by the "Bastard Bonds" that he signed for and was named as Father. They were: Henry b.1843, Matilda b.1846, Mahulda b.1847 Benjamin b.1851, John b.1856, Sarah Jane b.1861. All of them taking the last name of Stepp except the youngest Sarah Jane which took the name of Drake. The story goes that ol Hezekiah was married to Elizabeth Barton Drake, they had numerous children when he up't and went "over the mountain" to be with "that Stepp woman". He is in the 1850 and 1860 census living with and next door to Elizabeth Stepp. Her Father is believed to be "James", but that I have not proven...
