Andrew J Estep and son John J Estep b abt 1855

I'm looking for any information on the following family. Andrew Jackson ESTEP born abt 1828 NC or TN. He married a Mary Jane COPLEY on May 16, 1842 Johnson Co, TN. Andrew ESTEP appears on the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Lee Co, VA census, he then appears on the 1880 Carter Co, TN census. His known children are as follows:
Mary A. ESTEP born abt1842 married John S. HAMPTON, lived Letcher County, Kentucky
Nancy C ESTEP born abt 1843
Sarah E ESTEP born abt 1845 married William A.D. Cook
Susan L ESTEP born abt 1847
William R. ESTEP born abt 1849
Harvy D ESTEP born abt 1851 married Martha CARDEN
John J ESTEP born abt 1855 married 1 Eliza Ward, married 2 Elizabeth Hart
Jas J. ESTEP born abt 1857
Samuel M ESTEP born abt 1859 married Eliza HAYS

On the 1880 Carter County Census they have the following Grandchildren listed with the family. These children may not have the surname of ESTEP, since I believe they may be Andrew's daughters children.

William born abt 1864 VA
Charles born abt 1868 VA
Cordelia born abt 1870 VA
Cratus born abt 1871 VA
Roderick B. born abt 1972 VA
Mollie born abt 1876 TN
Belle born abt 1878. TN

It seems that John J Estep stayed in Lee County, Virginia, even though his parents and brothers moved back to Carter County, Tennessee. John J Estep appears on the 1880, 1900 1910 and 1920 Lee County, Virginia census.

John J Estep's known children are as follows:
married 1) Eliza Ward 1874
married 2) Elizabeth Hart 1900

1. Cora Estep married John Collier 1892
2. Hettie J. Estep
3. William T (Tipton or Tin) Estep married Mattie unknown
4. Lizzie Estep
5. Nannie Estep
6. Lucy Estep
7. Dock Estep
8. Minnie Estep
9. Albert/ Elbert? Estep
10. Ruth Estep married Steve Shetley in Wise County, Virginia.
11. Hannah Estep
There are other children, but I have had a hard time reading some of the names on the census records. William T Estep is married on the 1910 and 1920 Census with his family.

Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.
I believe most of the births and marriages for both Andrew and John J Estep's families occurred in Lee County, Virginia.

Than you
