William Dixon Steele Bible?
Posted by: Robert Foster (ID *****4619) Date: October 06, 2011 at 12:32:43

Does anyone have access to a copy of the William Dixon Steele Bible? It is mentioned on the Lincoln Co., Tennessee mail list. But only a brief extract was provided. I'd like very much to see it in its entirety.

This is what I have on this family so far.

William Dixon Steele (1778-1857) m. Mary Watt (1793 - 1859). They were both from South Carolina and died in Maury Co., Tennessee. I don't know if they married in SC or TN.

I only have these three children for them (there must have been others) --

1. Sarah Steele (22 Oct. 1809 - 24 Apr. 1873) m. Benona Gresham (27 Aug 1801 - 27 Jun 1868). They married 15 Sept. 1831 in Maury Co. and died there. Benona was from Halifax Co., Virginia.

2. Nancy Steele (5 Jun 1814 - ?) m. John Davidson Watt ( no dates). They married 9 Sept. 1833 in Maury Co. I believe that John Watt(s) was from Iredell Co., NC. I have conflicting information on what happened to them. One online source says they moved to Lincoln Co., TN. Another source says they went to Arkansas where John died about 1850. Nancy then remarried the much older Henry Foster. I favor the latter theory, because the John Watts in Lincoln Co., TN has the middle name Walter and is married to Narcissa. There's no indication they were ever in Maury Co.

3. George Washington Steele (22 Jan 1817 - ?). No further info.

Can anyone help?
