"Steele" is not the last name of John Lumsden's wife Wilmoth. This rumor started a long time ago when a lady was trying to join the DAR on John Lumsden, & needed a last name for John's wife Wilmoth. Many years ago, my now 95 years old father met this person in the VA archives, & she told him that she had used the name "Wilmoth Steele" because she had come across it in Maryland records & she had never seen another person named Wilmoth. She was embarrassed about what she had done but didn't know how to change it. Unfortunately, this misinformation keeps spreading. As of this date there has been no proof of Wilmoth's real last name.
