Communication with Jim Estepp

I wrote to James Randol Estepp (jim at estepp.net). He was the author of the packet that I received from Doug Estepp, Stephen's uncle.

He has sent me some nice photos of his grandfather, James Albert Estepp (brother of Rhodes) as well as Estep Cemetery, where he thinks Rhodes is buried. I will need to talk to Lisa (Estepp) to confirm what she knows.

Estepp family

So. I have married into the Estepp family. I thought my Kentucky line was confusing! Whoa nelly, these people did not move. At least, though, they changed their names to random names. The only problem is that the spelling of these names are not standardized, so searching can be difficult.

The Estepp family is originally Estep and there are families that are Estepp/Estep in the same generation. My husband's gg-grandfather is Rhodes Estep, who is the son of Jonathan Estepp, husband of Christina Meades. We recently receieved the ancestors and family of James R. Estepp from his uncle. James R. Estepp was the brother of Rhodes Estep. There are a lot of children and families inter marrying.

Stephen and I were married September 25, 2010 at Miller Park Pavillion, Miller Beach, Indiana.
