      Connie, on the McNairy, TN board Judy Hosto gives the last will of John M. Moore in which he wills his land to John H. Steadman and J.B. Maxedon. I have made the Maxedon connection. J.B.s wife, Corrina was the daughter of Hanse and Laura Moore Hunter. Laura was John Moore's sister. I have not made a connection with the Steadmans yet. John Steadman is in the McNairy, TN 1880 census as is John Moore who has his 80 year old father Nathan living with him. There are no children or a spouse. Can you make the Steadman connection?
