Looking for a list of slaves that belong to Jack Steptoe. Searching for the name of Mary and several of her children that she had...aboout nine children born during slavery, their names Octavia, Reason, Burwell, Harvey, Sandy, Mary, Antionette, George, Alice, Letcher.

I have found that a niece, Mary was bound to Jack Steptoe in 1867 and another niece, Amanda was living with her aunt and uncle in 1880. Trying to find if my 3rdgrgrandmother was enslaved with the Steptoe family or if she had a sister who had married a former slave who took the surname Steptoe and these are their children.
