I am trying to trace our roots back on my father's side. My grandmother was from Hagerstown, MD and her family name is Steele. Any information on any living relatives is appreciated.

Do you know if the entire family moved to Kansas or did some remain in Hagerstown?

Thank you so much for the information. I have a lot of background work to do. I don't think that these families are related but you never know. I appreciate your efforts in getting this information to me. Good luck in your family search.

Was John the son of Jacob?

I am intrigued with your middle and last name -- the same as mine. My ancestor, Jacob STEELE had a son named John. Jacob probably lived part of his life in Bedford Co., PA. I am descended from his son George who was born in 1797, and who moved later to Ohio and then Indiana.

The John Steele in our family is not the son of Jacob. He is the son of William Carpenter Steele and Mary Hetzer. Sorry, am looking for any sibblings of this John H. Steele though. thanks

Hi My name is Jameson and I am Gerald's grandson and was wandering if you could tell me who William Carpenter Steele's father was. Any further information that you can give me on the male side would be great as well.

I'm also researching Will Carpenter Steele's ancestors. I found an immigration record in 1804 from England to Baltimore Maryland for "William Steele". I think that there is a good chance that this is WC Steele's father. He was born 5 years later. Just a theory, though.
