A bit more research convinces me that you are right about Margaret Brown. Take a look at the 1880 Mecklenburg census. George W. Steel(e), son of Martha and Robert, is living two households away from J. C. Beard and wife Martha. That is Martha Brown, my 3rd g-grandparent and almost certainly the sister of Margaret.

The very next household on the census is R R Steele and M C Steele.

Proximity was everything in those days. I'm sure your ancestor Margaret Brown Steele is part of my line.
