Rich, sorry, we aren't related that I know of, but being of Southern heritage, we most likely are. I was looking for some Newsoms that moved from Union County, NC to Union County, AR and ran across your message re Stegall, a name I had ran across in NC.I'd discount the Cherokee Indian story, as the Cherokees were driven out of NC during the Revolution. Popular story is that they were taking advantage of the turmoil and missing men to attack the settlers. My GGGG-grandfather was among the 9,000 man force that drove them "over the mountains into Tennessee". I did locate on my cemetery maps just where Joseph is buried. The place is called The Stegall Cemetery. Have you ever traced the ancestors of your GGG-grandmother, Sarah Jane Hasty? She descends from John Hasty, born ca 1706, Scotland, then to Ireland, and next to America. His brother, James, came with him.
