RE: Plat Shew
I'm sorry but I do not have any information on Plat Shew except what is found on his memorial. His sister, Mary Lee, was married to my cousin thus the reason I left flowers on the Shew memorials. I'm sorry I can't assist you.

Just noticed the post below mine...
Allen Estep was indeed her brother-- Samuel Allen Estep.

RE: Sarah Ellen Estep wife of Wiley Harman
Your question peaked my interest, and so I went searching through many many records and found that Sarah Ellen Estep is the daughter of Jacob Estep and Nancy Moore of Brushy Mountain, NC. She is traditionally not attributed to these parents, but there is one child on the 1840 census that is not mentioned on various family trees that is most likely Sarah. I found her marriage bond, and she married Wiley Harmon in the area in 1846. There was only one family of Esteps in the area and that was Jacob and his descendents. I can say that it is probable that these are her parents, especially with the fact that several of her children are named after other members of that Estep family.

Sorry but I have no information that tells me who Sarah's parents were.

I found an Allen Estep, b. about 1828 in the 1860 Watauga Co., census.
