There is a possible connection to your Bessie Steele LeCompte. The middle name of my great grandfather Robert LeCompte is Steele and his son Guy also had the same middle name. Robert Steele LeCompte was born February 3, 1862 and died April 30, 1920. I am not sure where the Steele name comes from, but there was a Dr. Steele in the Dorchester Co. area at that time.

According to Robert's death certificate, his father was Joseph LeCompte and his mother was JoAnna Hurley. I have not been able to connect Joseph to the Anthony LeCompte line, but my great aunt told me before she died that our line went back to Anthony.

Do you have any idea where the Steele name comes from and if your Bessie and my Robert are related?

Thanks for responding.
