William T. Tolbert Amelia Steelman

Hey all you Beets, Steelman and Tolbert families out there!!! I am in desperate search of some information that I am having a hard time with. Are there any family out there of James Beets and Nancy Heath, Steelmans or Tolberts?
James and Nancy had 4 children, Dora, Daniel, James and Benjamin. The oldest son, Daniel, married a woman from the Steelman family. I am under the assumption that her name was "Belle". The reason that I'm interested in this is because, ok here goes, my great grandfather, William T. Tolbert, had 2 wives. His first wife was named Amelia "Melia" Steelman. She supposedly had a sister that married this Daniel Beets. The funny thing is, William T.'s 2nd wife was Dora, who was Daniel Beets's sister.Now, where my dillema comes in is I don't know who Amelia or "Belle" ' s father was. I do know that their mother's name was Jane and was born in Alabama. I know that the Steelman father was born in Tennessee per the 1900 Bedford County Census. If there is someone out there from the Beets, Steelman or Tolbert families that has any information or is researching this line of family, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me. This is an important piece of my puzzle although Amelia was not a direct ancestor.
Again, my great grandfather was William Thomas Tolbert. I don't know much further back from him except that his Father was Thomas Elliot Tolbert and mother was Frances/is Anders. Thomas Elliot was born in North Carolina and I believe his Grandfather was Samuel Tolbert of Montgomery County North Carolina. Are there any descendants of this line of Tolberts from North Carolina? I believe that Thomas Elliot's father was possibly James Tolbert and James's father was Samuel. I'm not sure of this but the dates and ages fit perfectly. It has been said in my family that we were possibly from N.C. but my grandfather died before I got interested in Genealogy (what a wonderful thing genealogy is)
I'm begging (i hate to grovel) for anyone that might think that they're in any of these family lines, ANYWHERE, to please get in touch with me at HAPPY HUNTING ALL!!!!
