PREFACE 



Some ten years since, the -writer began, for Ins own aravisement 
cliietly, to collect genealogical information respecting the Steele 
family in the United States. To tliis family be is allied, through 
totl: patcrnr.! and mriternal br^ ncb.e=. 

"While making investigations to this end, ho learned that an- 
other—A. J. Skilton, M D. of Troy, X. Y., and also of the same 
connexion — was zealously engaged in a similar pursuit. On finding 
that our views and aims were identical, we henceforth united in 
the prosecution of our inquiries as opportunities presented. 

It was not anticipated at iirst, that the result of these investi- 
gations would be such as to warrant publication. But in the course 
of research, the amount of matter became so full, and the sriccess 
so complete, that in the autumn of 1S57 it was resolved that the 
manuscripts should be revised, and a copy from them prepared for 
publication. Of this the charge was committed to Dr. Skilion. In 
the spring of 1S5S, Dr. S. was removed from his earthly labors, 
and the task was left to others.'* 

^So much of the present volume as relates to the eailier descend- 
ants of those two pioneers, in the Iirst settlement of the Colony of 

*0f tlie many virtii-js of Dr. Avery J. Skilton, it is not our jiurpose here to b'peak. 
These were Lest kiio-.vn and most higlily appreciated by those who knew him best. 
To Hi.storical and Antiquarian research, few men in this country devoted ni jie time, 
or vrith better success. Of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, 
to was an active, zealous member. 



IV IT.EFACE. 

Connecticut, Jolm and George Steele, is mainly due to the re- 
searches of Dr. Skiiton. Gathered with uncxLU.npled per.-evcrance 
and care trom the Colonial, Town, Probate, and other Kecords in 
Connecticut, and from Cemetery Inscription^ ar^d Family Regis- 
ters, they present a true specimen of his accuracy and industry. 
And in respect to the whole work, while infaliihility is not claimed, 
it is believed that facts, dates, names, and places, are given with 
as much correctness as it was possible, in such circumstances, to 
attain. 

All varieties of obstacles, which every one engaged in this kind 
of research must encounter, have been met and overcome. And 
curious indeed are the phases of human nature in this manner 
developed. To the inquiries for information, whetlier from Family 
Eecords or from other sources, for the worlc. some manifested 
perfect ignorance and indiflerence. Others indicated suspicion of 
sinister motives in the inquirer, of some un<lerh-ujd measures in 
searching for titles to property, or of some other concealed pur- 
pose. The idea of any one troubling himself with inrjniries of 
t^.o 'j....l^.^, v^^^^^.L iKj^ cwUiC p^ouniaiv advviiitag.j, seemed to them 
inexplicable. Some, again, would furnish the information desired, 
if paid for it — and some, if their own names could appear conspi- 
cuously in the work. But others, and not a few, appreciated the 
undertaking, and favored it with an enlightened zeal, and a hearti- 
ness o[ purpose, worthy of all commendation. 

■ lu the preparation of this volume, not only information from 
private sources and unpublished records, bui from all known 
historical works relative to the stibject, have been consulted, as 
Trumbull's Colonial Eecords of Connecticut, Shurtleif's Eecords 
of Massachusetts, Cothen's Ancient Woodbury, Farmer's Genea- 
logical Eegister, HoUister's History of Connecticut, Hinman's 
Catalogue of Puritan Settlers, Goodwin's Genealogical Xotes, Xev/ 
England Genealogical and Historical Eegister, etc. 

Among the few articles inserted entire, is a copy of the Will of 
John Steele — and a curious specimen it is— drawn in all due form 
of the time, with its c[uaint phrases, causing a smile, and giving 
some insight into the conditions, habits of life, labors, customs, 
&c., of those concerned. 

With these prefatory remarks, this little volume is offered to

A BRIEF ME:\[0IE 



JOHN STEELE, ESQ., 

ONE OF THE PIONEERS IX THE FIRST SETTLEMENT 
OF CONNECTICUT. 



It has in all ages been esteemed a duty and privilege to honor 
the memory of those ^vhose labors and self denial have result- 
ed in good to their country and to their race. xSuch tribute is 
justly due to those, whose labors and sore trials laid the founda- 
liv,... c; rcl::r.""~ 'n ^""^'^ ■vrpqtpvn -world — colonies that have re- 
sulted in comparatively happy states, of which we ourselves have 
the privilege cf being members. Accordingly, we here bring to 
view, acts or traces of one, who, in all these respects, deserves a 
memorial at our hands. 

Among the early pioneers from England, in the settlement of 
a A''t:o England, ])articularly in founding the colony of Connecti- 
cut, the subject of this memoir acced no unimportant part. 

!Mr. John Steele was a native of England, probably of the 
county of Essex, and of some town near London, '' from whence '* 
(says he with others) '^ we had our transportation.'' Of his 
immediate connections there, as of the place of his nativity, we 
have no reliable information. 

Among those of the name, coteraporary with him, was William 
Steele, Esq., Magistrate, Counselor, and not long after Recorder 
of London, then created Baron, and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. 
A namesake, also, John Steele, Esq., was purchaser of the Lei- 
cestershire estates, and married the daughter of Edv.-ard Nichol, 
Esq. of Henderson, county of Middlesex, whose daughter married 
Sir Charles Bromfield, Bart., of Barton-under-Needwood, county 
of Stafford, 

Baron Steele of London, took a lively interest in the settlement 
and progress of the colonies, and was the active President of the 
first corporation or society, organized in 1649, "to aid in 
publishing the Cospel among tho Indians in New England." In 
the formation and success of this society, Winslow of the Ply- 



^"' STEELE FAMILY. 

raoutl. colony, Avhen in England, was a most zealous and efficient 
agent.* 

Our John Steele, like the other two of the name jn?t mentioned, 
appears to have been educated for the duties of flic ]\laa-istracy, 
and his apparent rank in life ?eem= to liave been well calculated 
for his advancement in that calling. Qualified by education, en- 
ergy of character, and all tho i-e.]i;i-iLc.s ibr founding new settle- 
ments in a Jieiv xcorld, and active and self-denying as he was in tlie 
enterprise, it is to be regretted that such lira'ited information has 
been preser red respecting him. Even most of tho particulars 
recorded would be passed over, were it not '• that small Ikings, in 
the beginnings of all communities, are of far higher importance, 
and more worthy of being noted, and have a more endurino- i)i- 
fluence, than far greater matters, v.heu a people or nation has 
become established."' 

Mr. John Steele's name appears /^ri'/ in connection with Dor- 
chester, one of the earliest settlements of the colony of Massachu- 
setts, in tho year 1630,t ten years only after the 'arrival of the 
pilgrim company in the Mayflower. 

Xext, he is found to have been one of tho proprietors of Cam- 
bridge (first called Newtown), in 1632. Two others, George and 
Henry Steele, were also proprietors at the same time. Mr. John 
S:i-Po1a Moving bAPn made freeman or elector bv the court, in jG34. 
was elected a representative from Cambridge in 1635: Cambridf^-e 
being designed to be the capital of the colony, as it was soon after 
the seat of the university. 

During this period, however, the numerous arrivals at Cam- 
bridge, and the want of pasture hinds in the vicirdtv. induced a 
portion of the people, including a number of their chief m;?n. 
with the Eev. Mr. Hooker, their pastor, to seek another location. 
Another inducement for their removal was, a dislike of some re- 
gulations, wdtich were thought to circumscribe their rights as 
freemen. The proposed enterprise met with strong opposition, 
but at length its advocates obtained tlie consent of the majority; 
and Mr. John Steele, in the autumn of 1635, led the pioneer band 
through the rugged, jiathless wilderness, to a new location on the 
Connecticut river. As Leader and Magistrate, he appears to 
have conducted the exi.^edition safely and wiseh\ Arrivino- late 
in the season, they had to endure all the hard^liips and trials of 
a severe winter, with the labors of clearing the forest, construct- 
ing their rude dwelling-^, securing food, and of protecting them- 
selves against cold and wet, the ravages of vrihj iieasts, and the 
warlike savage. Dravely persevering, while other exTjeditions 
during the same season failed, and many perished, they succeeded. 
And iu tlie ensuing summer came the main portion of their coru-

STEELE FAr^ni.Y. ix 

pQpy — nicn, women and cliilJroii, witli tlieir minister — to their 
new home. 

Here, on the rnarp;in of the river, noar the head of its navigahlo 
\\-aters, and through much toil, patient endurance, and trust in 
an Ahnighty arm for success, they hiid tlie foundations of a new 
/oiiTi, aft ei- wards named Hartford ; and of a new cok'>ny (Connecti- 
cut), tlic th:rd of the celonics of New Enirh^nd. And here, the 
subiect of our narrative, as a faithful head of a family, as an 
active member of their church, as a magistrate, and as one of tlio 
principal members of their legishitive — ^judicial — colony court, 
aided in establishinp; a community, the duration, wisdom, and 
happy inlluence of whose institutions have been — with few excep- 
tions — the glory of the state. Daring 23 years cl^ctedto the 
princijial colony court, lie was present at SS at least of its ses- 
sions, and en:;-aged in its legislation and judicial decisions, and 
for 4 'years its secretary or recorder. For nearly 50 years he 
Avas also recorder of the town of Hartford, and for a time re- 
corder of the town of Favmington.* 

Huring these years, he was likewise called npori to act on 
various "^rrincipal committees or agencies, civil, military and 
ecclesiastical, for determining the contested claims and bound- 
aries of the colony ; ior the peaceful acquisition of additional ter- 
ritory ; for raising troops for special expeditions amcmg the 
hosthe Inamns — but especially were his exertions called lortii in 
eflbrts to heal the sad breach, and to bring to a peaceful termina- 
tion that long and bitter controversy, occasioned by the require- 
ments for admitting members into their church, and of those who 
should present their cluidren for baptism— -which had caused a 
separation between their teacher and a portiori of the congrega- 
tion on the one side, and those who v.ere the'dissentients, or had 
witlidrawn, on the other. On these points he appears to have 
tahen middle ground, as inclining to a less stringent course, but 
with others pleading with all the energy of heart and sOLd for 
reconciliation and peace. f 

Thus— unambitious e,.. .q)t to do good, and be faithful to every 
trust committed to 1dm, did he pass some thirty of the active 
years of his life, in founding with others, according to their views, 
a new home in the new world. At length, age and feeble health 
caused him to retire from public duty, and as a ClirisLian, to 
arrange all his worldly affairs, and to '• commit his soul " into tlie 
hands' of Him who gave it, " and into tlie hands of the blessed 
Savior, God ever gracious to him," ;ind his body '' to a decent 
and comely btn-ial.''t

X STEELE TAMILT. 

His closing years were pa.-?ed in Fnrmington, an-l ^vuerc also 
he was a member of their church. His residence in Hartford 
was on the main street, just north of the present Atheneura. His 
will bears date, January 30, 1663-1. He died Xovember 25, 1665. 



OF GEORGE STEELE, 

T\'ho was also one of the pioneers ii the Conneclicui. colony, 
we can furnish only a few particulars : 

His name appears hut a few times on the public records. All • 
the circumstances respecting him compai-ed, seem plainly to indi- 
cate that he was an elder brother of John Steele, Esq., v.diose 
memorial hasjust been given. "With him he ap}H:ars to have 
come to Xew England ; ^vi;h him was pro])rietor of lauds in New 
Town (afterwards Cambridge), in 1632; was admiiied freeman 
at the general court of ^Massachusetts, in !May, 1634 ; was one of 
the company in the settlement of Hartford, Conn., in 1635 or 6 ; 
was one of the proprietors of undivided lands therein in 1639; 
was a juryman in 16'J3, and also a plaintift in three cases, before 
the general court, in 1644 and 1647. Other and minor notices 
we omit. His residence in Hartford, ^vas on the lane, now Wash- 
i::gl:n ztrect, ::"th-a:t cf Tri-'^v College. He died in 1663, 
" very old." 

Of his wife we find no record. Ho hiid 4 children, and his de- 
scendants have been very numerous ; man}" of tliem having fi lie- 
prominent stations in military life during the French Avar, and 
during the American revolution. Not a few have held respond 
sible positions iu civil life, and in the Christian ministry.*

THE FAMILY OF STEPHEN STEELE, 

OF TOLL A N D. 



Rev. Stephen Steel was the ;ince.>tor of all the persons of that 
name \vhu have re^iided iu Tolhuid, Conn, lie was a native of 
Hartford, where his father was a farmer ; their liouse stood iu 
what was some years since called Cuoper lane (now Washington 
street), and is said to be yet btandiui;-, thongh modernized. Mr. 
Steel graduated at Yale College, in 17 IS, and was the first settled 
minister in Tolland, in 17:20, at a salary of £75 a year, which was 
more than ten dollars from each family in the place, the town 
liaving been an unbroken wilderness until seven years previous. 
He was also furnished with a lot of laud and other perquisites. 
lie continued in the ministry, and much beloved until, being 
stricken with the consumption, in 175S, his lelation to tlic society 
was peacefully dissolved, and he died in December, 1759. Eev. 
Mr. Steel married Euth, daughter of Col. Hezekiah Porter of 
Hadley, ^lass. ; another daughter of Col. Porter laarried Rev. 
Solomon Williams, and was ancestress of William Williams, one 
of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and Bon. T. 
S. Williams, late Chief Justice of Connecticut. They had child- 
ren ; Ruth, Stephen, Eleazar, Elisha, Sarah, Mehitable, James, 
John and Aaron. 

Elisha was the earliest lawyer in Tolland ; died 1773. Of A ap.ox 
nothing particitlarly is known. James llrst settled in Tolland, and 
moved to Ellington in 177(j ; after the Revolution, went to Rrook- 
ficld, Yt., to reside with his son Zadoc, and died about 1813. This 
James had been iu the Avar of 1755, and received a lieutenant's 
commission, but was prevented by sickness from serving. His 
son James was one of the company that went from Tolland to the 
siege of Boston, instantly on the breaking out of hostilities, and 
the next year was in the battle of Long Island. Aaron, another 
son, perished in the army in Xew Jersey. A third (Sajiuel), and 
a fourth, whose name has been forgotten, were also iu the army. 
Zadoc, after some service, emigrated to Brookfield, Yt, when in 
Oct. 1781, he was taken by the party of Indians that burnt Royal- 



]\/vl 



STEELE EAMILY. S9 

ton. The captives were eventually in a prison on an island in the 
rapids above Montreal, from Avhicli a number of them, including 
Zadoc Steel, made their escape. They dug a passage under the 
^vall of the prison building, and the pickets with which it was 
surrounded, yet so deep as to pass under the ditch. Steel, with 
three others, 'in a dark night, gained the outside, eluded the senti- 
iiels,*hastily rolled together a" lew logs for a raft, and com.mitied 
themselves' to the raprds. They succeeded in landing on the north 
side of the river, and after various adventures and escapes in an 
enemy's country and a pathless wilderness, half-starved, and with- 
out shelter, even in the latter weeks of autumn, they linally 
succeeded in reaching the American settlements. The alfair, as 
related by Mr. Steel in a narrative, printed at Montpelier, in ISIS, 
was one of the most intrepid adventures of the kind ever under- 
taken. Mr. Steel died a few 3-ears ago at Stanstead, Lower Canada. 
James, son of James, resided in Ellington, until his death in 1S19. 
lie was one of the earliest Jlethodists in that town, possessed 
much more than ordinary intelligence and ability. His son, (.)liver 
"SVolcott Steel, resides in Ellington ; has been a member of the 
Assembly, and for many years Town Clerk and principal Justice 
of the Peace. He is a man of high respectability and much of an 
antiquarian. 

STF.pnEX. Eleazar. Eli?ha and John Steel, lived and died in 
Tolland. Capt. Stephen Steel married Hannah, daughter of Sam- 
nel Chapman, Esq., of this town, in May, 1747, Mr. Chapman was 
a large hmdholder and a conspicuous public man. He commanded 
one of the companies that went from Connecticut to the siege of 
Louisburg, in 17-15, where he died. His numerous posterity here 
about, are always gratified in the idea of deriving their ancestry 
from him. His daughter, Mrs. Steel, died in ISOl. Capt. Steel 
Avas one of the Selectmen, from 17G9 to 1773. The others of the 
minister's sons, also received their share of town meeting honors, 
for honors they certainly were, in those days, when the most 
suitable men were carefully and even conscientiously selected for 
public ofiicers. 

Saeah Steel, whose birth, from some neglect, was not placed 
on the town records, at the age of 16, married Hea. Elijah Chap- 
man, aged 19, son of Capt. Chapman, above mentioned, and during 
a long Tife, a highly respectable and wealthy farmer of this town ; 
was the mother of a numerous and prominent family, and ances- 
tress of an almost innumerable posterity. _ Her son, Elijah, on the 
day when the news of the battle at Lexingto,n was received, en- 
listed into the company that was formed on the instant, and was 
made a sergeant, then a lieutenant, finally a captain, and served in 
Washington's army until its dissolution. He was engaged in the 
battles of Trenton, Princeton, Germantown, and Monmouth, &c., 
<fcc. Ho commanded the third company from the head of the 
column, that stormed the redouljt at Yorktown. In 1S24, La 
12 



90 STEELE EAMiLY. . 

Fayette recognized him as one of his former caj^tain?. After the 
war he rose" to the rank of Major-General of ?vlilitia. On the 
organization oi' Tolland county, in 37SG, lie was appointed sheriff, 
and held the ollice until his resignation, more than twenty years 
afterwards. Two of Dea. E. CIia[>man's grandsons have also been 
sheriffs of Tolland county. 

Mkhitadle Steel married John Huntington of Tolland, in 1749. 
Their son, llezekiah Huntington, was one of ihe most eminent 
early leaders of the Democratic party in this state, and was for 
many years, U. S. District Attorney for Connecticut. He died a 
few "years ago at Middletown. His sons, Hezekiah, Francis J., 
and Samuel F., have l.^een and are still prominent citizens of Hart- 
ford ; his daughter married Hon. Lester King of Ohio, who was a 
candidate for the ollice of Governor in that state, some years since. 
The'Tvev. ]\Ir. Steel had numerous male descendants of the proper 
age for the Revolutionary arm}-, and they were all out : from the 
prison depot at Montreal to the prisons of Xew York ; from Kox- 
bury to Yorktown, there were not many scenes of general danger 
or suffering, where he was not represented. 

For about three-quarters of a century, the Steels in Tolland, 
were numerous : most were respectable, and some had large 
possessions. ]]ut the tendency of sucli families in this country is 
to flnallv di-npnpnr fvm-n <-L<-' vJ;iop of their location. Such was 
the case with the Steels. They began to diminish in number, and 
about fifteen years ago, the name became extinct in Tolland. But 
Mr. Steel's descendants not bearing the name, are yet numerous 
here, especially those of his daughter, Mrs. Chapman. 

The house in which ^Ir. Steel lived and died, was built about 
125 years ago, by Josiah Goodrich, who married a daughter of 
Col. Dorter. Jt was said to be the finest house between Hartford 
and Worcester ; after Mr. Steel's decease it was sold to his 
successor, ilev. Xathan AVilliarns, who continued in it until his 
decease, in lo29 ; tlien after being inhaluted a few years longer, 
it was altered into a barn, in which use it is still standing. The 
stones for the fire-places, instead of the grey rock of the vicinity, 
were brought from near the Connecticut river, and the faces of 
the mantel and sides, were cut into panels. In each of two rooms, 
over the fire-places in the ceiling, was a very broad board painted 
with a really elegant landsca])e. ^ On the destruction or desecration 
of the house, these boards, then in good order and looking fresh, 
were sold at thirty-four cents each, for fire-boards, where they 
would not be valued eitlier for antiquity or workmanship. A few 
years since Oliver W. Steel int^ormed tlie writer that not long pre- 
vious, an old lady of this town told him, that she bein,g about ten 
years old, Avas at meeting when ^Mr. Steel's growing infirmity so 
far prevailed, that he gave out and failed in the pulpit. His sons 
helped him down and home, and according to the old lady, ho 
ofiiciated there no more. 



THOMAS STEEL. 



Of this individual and his descendants nothing definite is known 
as' to their connection with the Hartford Steelcsj it is snrmit(;d by 
some that Thomas Steel was u brother of John and George. In 
collecting materials for the compilation of this volume, there has 
been received genealogies of tliis and other families. It has been 
thought advisable that this matter should be publislied for the 
];enefit of future inquirers : 

1. TH0:^rA6^ STEEL of Boston, and Jane his wife, had 

2. TnOMAS- (4) b. Mav 4, 1711 ; m. b)'- Rev. Benjamin Colman, 
Aug. 23, 1736, Mary Gushing; d. at Leicester, July IS, 1776. Of 
this person, the Ibllowing is taken from Washburne's Judicial His- 
tory of Massachusetts : " Thos. Steel, a Judge of the Gourt of 
Common Pleas, from 1756 to 1776, in Worcester county, ^Mas?., 
was a native of Boston, from "which place he removed to Leices- 
ter, where he spent the remainder of his days. He was graduated 
at Cambi-idge in 1730. He was bred a merchant, and pursued that 
business both before and after leaving Boston. He was a Loyalist 
in his politics, and a man of influence until the period of the Bevo- 
lution. He frequently represented the town of Leicester in tho 
General Gourt, and was much respected by his fellow citizens as a 
man of integrity."

8TEELES OF NEW YOEIv 



JouN Steel, born in England ; came to the city of Xew York, 
as is said in consequence of a prosecution against Lim lor marry- 
ing his deceased wife's sister ; his name appears as a freeman in 
1741 ; he liad a sou. 

Stephen, a very active "Whig in the Kovolutionary war ; he was 
obliged to abandon his home and a valuable property in Xew York, 
when that city was taken possession of by the British forces, and 
repaired to Xew Jersey, where he was obliged to remove seven 

times during the war ; he married Schureman from Holland, 

residing- at Tanpan on the Hudson river ; ho liod a son, 

Hon. William Steele, born in Xew York, May 20, 17Ci2. He be- 
came subject to military duty in 177S, and immediately took an im- 
portant part in our Revolutionary struggle. Although his services 
were not of sufticient duration, at any one consecutive period to 
entitle him to a pension, they were really neither inconsiderable, 
nor free from danger. He was frequently drafted, and often vol- 
unteered, on particular emergencies, and served in several of those 
various expeditions, of which history takes usually little note, but 
which often put the qualities and courage of the soldier to the severest 
tests. In the spring of 1780, he sailed from Philadelphia on board 
the Aurora, a twenty gun ship, which Avas shortly after captured 
by the British frigate His, bearing dispatches of the surrender of 
Charleston to the" British. In the running fight which ensued, he 
was severely wounded, taken prisoner, and detained between four 
and five months, when he was exchanged in the exchange of pris- 
oners. In 17S5, .he was appointed a clerk in the old board of 
treasury, under Lee, Livingston and Osgood, commissioners. 

In 17"^y4. he commanded'a troop of Xew Jersey horse, and aided 
in supi)ressing the insurrection in Pennsylvania, near Pittsburg. 
After the Revolution, he resided principally in Xew Jersey, until 
his removal to the town of Painted Post, Steuben county, X._Y., 
where he has ever since resided upon his estate, until a short time 
previous to his decease, which took place at Big Flats, Chemung 
county, X. Y., April 4, 1S51, at the age of 89 years. For fifty 
years and upwards, he has been an elder in the Presbyterian

PEV. CAPTAIX JOHN STEELE. 

The first fori: in the Conococheague settlement, which comprises 
nearly the whole of the county of Franklin, Penu., was at the Rev. 
John Steele's meeting house, which was surrounded by a rude 
stockade fort, in 1755. It was erected shortly after Praddock's 
defeat, as it was referred to in the Indian invasion, in Xov. 1775. 

Among the first companies organized in this township on the 
occasion of the bloody outbreak, by the Delaware Indians, in 1775, 
was one selected for its Captain, Pev. John Steele, their Presby- 
terian pastor; this command was accepted by Mr. Steele, and exe- 
cuted with so much skill, bravery and judgment, as to commend 
him to the Provincial Government, which appointed him a Captain 
of the provincial troops, which he retained for many years. 

He often exercised his ministry with his gun at his side, address- 
ing his congregation, the men of which had their weapons within 
their reach. — Permsylvania Archives.

RIGHT IIOX. THOMAS STEELE. 

The following notice of this jK-rson is taken from the " Gentle- 
man's Magazine,'" 1S24 : 

Tlio 1 ito Right lion. Thomas Steele, who died Dec. S, TS23, was 
eldest son of Thomas Steele, Esq., Recorder of Chichester, 1746, 
who died Sept. 30, 177o ; was born in the year 1753, and educated 
at Westminster sciiool, from whence he was elected to Cambridge 
in 1771. lie became ^[. P. for Chichester in 17S0, and which city 
hereprcsented in every Parliament till the dissolution in April, 1S07. 
By Charles HI, Duke of Richmond, he was introduced to the late 
Right Hon. William Pitt, and by the same iniluence, appointed 
Secretary to the Treasury, in conjunction with the late Right Hon. 
George Rose, in Dec. 17S4, ui^on the dissolution of Mr. Fox and 
Lord North's celebrated coalition administration. 15oth the secre- 
taries possessed the entire coui^dence and intimate friendship of 
Mr. Pitt, which continued without the smallest abatement till his 
death. 

]\[r. Steele dischnre-ed the irndtifavious duties of this ofnce, re- 
quiring no inconsiderable share of judgment, delicacy, and con- 
ciliation, to the entire satisfaction of Ids friend and patron for 
more than six years, as eventful as any recorded in English his- 
torv. 

On February 13, 1791, he was apjpointed (vs-ith the Earl Harrow- 
by, then the Hon. Dudley Ryder) joint Paymaster of the Forces, 
in the room of the present' Duke of Montrose, and the late Lord 
Musgrave ; was sworn a Privy Counselor, and continued under 
Lord Sidmouth's administration till removed and succeeded, June 
27, 3S04, by Lord Charles Somerset. He was likewise in 1797, 
appointed by Mr. Pitt to succeed his brotlier-in-law, the Hon. Ed- 
Avard James^Eliot (then lately deceased), as King's Remembrancer 
in the Court of Exchequer, which he held to the time of his death. 
Mr. Steele married Sept. 3, 17S5, ]\Iiss Lindsay, daughter of Sir 
David Lindsay, Iktronet, arid has left one son by her, a Lieut. 
Colonel in the Cold Stream Guards, married to the eldest daughter 
of the Duke of },Ianchester ; also two daughters, the eldest married 
N. W. Ridley Colborne, Esq., ^L P. for Thetford, and the youngest 
to Henry John Conyers, Esc[. of Copt Hall, Essex. 



MRS. ELIZABETH 

AND 

MRS. CATHERINE STEELE. 

OF THE AMERICAN KEVOLUTION. 

]\[rs. Ellett, ia her interesting work, the " Women of the Ameri- 
can llevohuion," gives an account of the services of these ladies 
ill the trying limes of the KevoUition. lion. J. H. "Wheeler, in his 
Historical :?ketches of North Carolina, has also given a particular 
account of Mrs. Elizabeth Steele, as well as the services of her son, 
Hon. John .^tecle. From both of these works, I make the follow- 
ing extracts : 

'•Connected with the history of Rowan county, N. C, and this 
,Unr>Nr n^-r-U^-n,^ ,-„-..^\ r-.A o^ hnv iM^+ovyJc: +1(0 noi^e o ^' Elizabeth 
Steele, who was distinguished among the " women of the Revolu- 
tion,'' not only for her' attachment to the cause of America, bitt 
for her i^rudence, pietv and virtue. It was at her house, in the 
evening of the 1st ofFabruarv, HSl, that "theFabius of America," 
General Greene, after riding hard all day, in the rain, arrived 
'• fatigued, hungry, alone, and penniless," as he expressed himself 
to Dr. Read, who had charge of the sick and wounded prisoners 
at that place. :\lrs. Steele heard this, and the fire of patriotism 
was augmented by that deep svmpathy, which woman's heart ever 
feels for distress. Hardly had Gen. Greene seated himself at a 
well-spread table, before a cheerful fire, when Mrs. Steele entered 
and reminded her distinguished guest that she had overheard his 
despondin- remark to Dr. Read. She drew from under her apron, 
two small bags of specie, her earnings for years. " Tal^e these," 
she said, "for you will want them; I can do without them." 
*•' Never," savs his biographer, "did relief come at a more needy 
moment," and the hero resumed his dangerous journey that nio^ht, 
with a heart lightened by woman's kindness, and her devotion to 
the cause of lier country." 

On the wall of the room hung a portrait^ of George III, which 
had been sent as a present from England, from a friend at court, 
to one of ^Irs. Steele's connections. 

Filled with the mournfid recollection of the sufierings of his 
country, and the innocent blood that even that day had been spilled 
16 



l^f 



1-22 STEELE FAMIL1'. 

by myrmidons of royalty, Gen. Greene took it from the wall, and 
wrote on the back : '• George ! hide thy face and mourn,'- and 
replaced it with the face to tiie ^^ all. 

This picture, with the writing still visible, is in the possession 
of Gov. Swahi, at Chapel blill. ^Irs. Steele died on the 22d of 
November, 1790, at Salisbury. She was twice married ; her first 
liusband was a Gillespie, by whom she had a daughter, who mar- 
ried Eev. Samuel McCorkle ; and a son, liichard Gillespie, who 
was a captai!i in the devolution, and died unmarried. 

By her second husband, William Steele, she had an only son. 

Gen. John Steele, who was born in Salisbury, on the 1st of 
November, 1764. He was educated in that place, and commenced 
life as a merchant, but soon turned his attention to agricultural 
pursuits, in which he was skillful, prudent and successful. In 1787, 
he aj)peared in public life as a member of the House of Commons, 
and was re-elected in 177S. He was a member of the convention 
that assembled at Hillsboro', on tlie 21st of July, 17SS, to consider 
the constitution of the United States, and with Johnston, Davie 
and Iredell, made active but inetiectual eflbrts in its delence. In 
1790, he was elected a member of the first Congress, under the 
constitution, from the Salisbury district, and served until 1793. 
. In 1794, he was again elected a member of the House of Com- 
mons, and served, with some intermissions, until IS 13, of which 
he was often Speaker. 

On the removal of Gen. Davio to the State of South Carolina, 
in 1806, Gen. Steele succeeded him as Commissioner for North 
Carolina, to adjust the boundaries between the two States. There 
is ample documentary evidence that he conducted this delicate, 
protracted and difficult nea-otiation, with consummate ability and 
skill. 

He was appointed by Gen. AYashington first Comptroller of the 
Treasury, wliich place he held throughout the remainder of Wash- 
ington's and John Adams' administrations, and resigned in 1802 in 
opposition to the earnest and repeated remonstrances of Mr. Jeffer- 
son. 

On the 14th of August, 1815, he was again elected to the House 
of Commons, but on that day he died. 

He was buried at his residence, now the seat of Archibald Hen- 
derson, Esq., nearthetown. Hemarriedin 1783, Mary Nesfield, who 
survived him many years, and by whom he left three daughters: 

Ann, who married Gen. Jesse A. Pearson ; Margaret, who mar-

McNamara. The following is a copy of his tombstone :

" The archives of the Cuuntrv testify the t-ervices of his 

short, but useful life. Lons will thrit country deplore 

his loss ; but when will this sequestered spot 

cease to witness the sacred sorro'sr of his 

family and friends." 

Kathkrine Stefl. This heroine was of a stamp rarel}- seen or 
described in receut times. It needed a primitive country as well 
as unusual hardships and perils, to develope such lofty, yet unam- 
bitious heroism, such sagacity mingled wiih homely simplicity, 
such a spirit of patience, constancy and self-sacrifice, without an 
aspiration for praise, or thought of reward. 

The memory of these stout-hearted, high-souled matrons, is well 
nigh swept from earth ; but here and there recollections survive 
b3^ which we may learn how noble v/as the race that nursed the 
nation's infnnnv 

Katherine Fisher was a native of Pennsylvania ; when about 
twenty ye irs old, she was married to Thomas Steel of the same 
place. Both belonged to the race called Pennsylvania Irish, so 
many of whom emigrated to Carolina about tlie middle of the 
century. The young pair made their removal to South Carolina 
some time in 1745, to the upper, or wliat is called the granite region 
of tlie State. They were not long solitary The two currents of 
emigration from Charleston and the sea coast on one side, and 
Pennsylvania and Virginia on the other, meeting in this neighbor- 
hood, in a course of a few years, several families came to settle 
near them. 

It was soon found necessary to nnite in their defence against 
the hostile Indians, the Cherokees giving them much trouble. The 
place owned by Mr. Steel was fortified as a block house, to which 
the inhabitants could betake themselves, wlien danger threatened. 
These block houses were scattered over the country at convenient 
distances for the unprotected settlers. 

While the men were out fighting the Cherokees, or engaged in 
providing for the defence and maintenance of their families, the 
women wore in the habit of resorting on an}' alarm to this placn 
of refuge. Mrs. Steel was chief and ruler among them, not merely 
by her right of ownership, or her superior firmness and courage, 
but by virtue of her hearty kindness and good humor. She was 
acknowledged master of the fort, and was called familiarly, "Katy 
of tbiO Fort." Possessing great influence, she could at once calm 



ICi STEELE FAMILY. 

the fears of tho women, ^^l\o had quitted their homes at tlie dead 
hours of ni-ht io fioe thither : they lelt, in fact, a sense of security 
in her presence. She taught the young girls the use of the riflo, 
a useful accomplishment in those days, when no one knew what 
hour she might be compelled to wield that deadly weapon. 

Some thrilling incidents of peril and female prowess are related 
of this period, but time will not allow of their being here noticed; 
to those feelinganinciination to know more, reference is to bemade 
to Mrs. ]']lleti-s Women of the Revolution, in which a full account 
is given. AVhile on a trading expedition down the Mississippi 
river, Thomas Steele was suj)posed to have been killed by the 
Indians, his companions returned home bearing the sad news to 
his family, Mrs. Steel was now left alone with a family — three 
daughters and two sons. The sterling principles she infilled in 
their minds produced their fruit in the actions of after years, 
when trials even more severe than anv she had undergone in early 
life, fell to her lot and theirs. 

The home of ]\lrs. Steel was at no great distance from that of 
John Gaston, whose family she and her children often visited, 
going in canoes up and dowii the stream. She v/as in the habit of 
sending for the newspaper, by which she learned from time to. 
time,^ wliat was going on during the lirst years of the war. On the 
call for men to organize a company, her son John Steel (who was 
ihea gro\\n lo manliooa) was loremost m protfering his services. 
He A\as the head of the company from Chester, dispatched against 
the Cherokee Indians in the ''Snow Campaign " of 1775, At the 
battle of Fort ]\IouUrie, on Sullivan's Island, he was also engaged, 
with seven of the sons of Justice Gaston, At the siege of Savan- 
nah, he took part in the charge made under the command of Count 
Pulaski, On that mcmorablo morning when the devoted little 
band went forth to make the attack upon the British, on the spot 
where Beckhamville now stands, Katherine Steel called upon her 
youngest son, the only child remaining with her, and then about 
seventeen, to go out with the rest. " You must go now," she said 
to him, " and tight the battles of our country, with John. It must 
never be said that the old Squire's boys (meaning Gaston) have 
done more for the liberty of their country than the widow Steel's." 

Capt. Jonx Steel, who has been called " the Murat of the 
Catawba river," was in every engagement during the summer of 
17S0, On one occasion when the little army were surprised by 
the British troops, in the night, Capt. Steel caught Gen. Sumpter, 
inhisarms and carried him to a place of safetv. He continued 
in active service during the campaign of 17SL In the spring fol- 
lowing, he was married to Margaret Beard. Thomas Steel, the 
younger brother, married the sister of Margaret. Katherine Steel 
showed no less of the truly heroic in her character, in her labors 
after the establishment of peace, than in the darkest hour of the 
actual struggle. Her days were ended at the old fort in 17S5.
