Hartwell Steagall was born in 1794 in Halifax County, NC to Rabon Steagall and his wife Jane. They had moved to NC from the Brunswick/Lunenburg Co, VA area ca 1790. Who was Jane? Could she have been a Hartwell since her first and oldest son is named Hartwell? Or was the Hartwell family just good friends in VA before the move to NC? Rabon's mother was also a Jane. Could she have been the Hartwell connection? Rabon's father Samuel Steagall married Jane ca 1755 probably in the Brunswick Co, VA area. Samuel Steagall's parents George Steagall and Mary Bottom were in early Brunswick County and Amelia County records. Is there a connection between one of the generations of the Steagall family and the Hartwell family or just a use of a familiar name for achild?
Thanks for any help.
