Wife of Samuel Lamme
There was a Capt. David Steele that served in the 13th Virginia Regiment, but he does not appear to be the father of Samuel Lamme's wife, Nancy Agnes Steele. There was also a David Steele that served with the Virginia Regiment in the Battle of Guilford, but he would have been too young to have been Nancy Agnes Steele's father (Nancy Agnes was born before his first marriage). More research is necessary to determine her parentage.
