Prudence Steele was the d/o James 'Jimmy' Steele....Prudence marr to David Winslow Barnett 21 Dec 1835 in (adj) Cabarrus CO, NC.

I have a copy of these original docs (copied from the original Mecklenburg CO Wills which I located @ NC State Archives in Raleigh). I could scan them and forward to you. I have compiled some of these Mecklenburg NC records into 'note' form for quick reference.
I also forwarded James Steele's Will record on to to Jeff = so it is scanned. Let me know if you would like me to forward your way.
