Norma, My grandfather, Robert Nathan Stepp Sr. was from Wheeling, West VA and he married Sarah Van Essler. My grandfather had a brother named Will Stepp and he moved to Kansas from W. VA. My aunt Dorothy King has more information on older generations which I will look into for you. As far as I know there were no sister on my grandfather's side. BUT my great grandfather was killed at a train crossing in W. VA and my grandfather's mother remarried and that man was named Harris.
My Dad says there was a Cherokee tribe in Oklahoma. My grandfather says his great, great grandfather was a Cherokee Chief. I am researching this but expect it will not prove easy.
Best, Joan Stepp
