I am a Sumter researcher. My Rachael Perkins married in 1833 a Larkin Steele. I previosly reported him as Larkin State. Closer examination finds the grooms name was STEELE.
Sumter didnt exist in 1830 and I dont find the couple in an 1840 census or later in Sumter or anywhere else. I dont find any Larkin Steele land records.
Anyone know the Steeles from Sumter at the time?
