I think Mary James was married to a different William Stepp in Dent County,. William Tutt Stepp The 2nd William Stepp married to Mary J James 1880 Spring Creek, Dent, Missouri W.T. Stepp 38 Self (Head) Mary J. Stepp 32 Wife Lena T. Stepp 8 Daughter Ida E. Stepp 6 Daughter Minnie Stepp 4 Daughter William Stepp 2 Son A. James 17 Sister-in-law Emma James 11 Sister-in-law Timeline: 1. In 1860 our Patsy was living in Doniphan, Ripley, Missouri, United States born abt 1843 2 1870 Little Black Township, Randolph, Arkansas (17 miles from Doniphan) Wm T Stepp 23 Martha Stepp 27 (born abt 1843 in Missouri) Mary E Stepp 5 Laura Stepp 2 Sarah Stepp 6/12 3. I also found: Name William T. Stepp Gender Male Marriage Date 9 May 1880 Marriage Place Ripley, Missouri, USA Marital Status Married Spouse Mary A. Stephens 4. June 17, 1880 Census: Doniphan, Ripley, Missouri Wm. T. Stepp 39 Self (Head) Mary Stepp 18 Wife Mary E. Stepp 13 Daughter Laura V. Stepp 10 Daughter Sarah J. Stepp 8 Daughter Charly W. Stepp 6 Son 1880 - William Stepp 2 is living with William Dennis in Doniphan, Ripley, Missouri in 1880 Mary(wife) is only 18 - oldest daughter Mary E. Stepp is 15.. she can’t be the mother. We have to fall back to 1870 Martha who would have been 37. Theory.. He was married to Martha abt. 1864… she died abt 1878 during/after youngest son William Walter was born. He then married Mary Stephens in time for the 1880 Census. Is this Martha our Patsy? It all fits. IDK
