My name is Delbert Fowler. I have been the secretary of Ventry Cemetery for the past 20 years.
Yes there is a Robert and Mrs Steen buried in Ventry Cemetery.
However, the only information on their monument is that Robt. was born in 1810 and died Oct. 4, 1899. There are no details about Mrs. Steen at all.
Ventry Cemetery was opened in 1879 and the Steens' are buried in the first row very close to the starting point. There is a history of the former Proton Township, now Southgate, but there is no reference to the Steens that I can find.Their monument is one of the old limestone ones and the engraving is getting faint.
I'm not sure this will give you much help but it is all that I have.
