Some ten years since, the writer began, for his own amusement 
chiefly, to collect genealogical information respecting the Steele 
family in the United States. To this family he is allied, through 
both paternal and maternal branches. 

While making investigations to this end, he learned that an- 
other — A. J. Skilton, M. D. of Troy, N. 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 first, 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 success 
so complete, that in the autumn of 1857 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. Skilton. In 
the spring of 1858, Dr. S. was removed from his earthly labors, 
and the task was left to others.* 

So much of the jiresent volume as relates to the earlier descend- 
ants of those two pioneers, in the first settlement of the Colony of 

* Of the many virtues of Dr. Avcrj' J. Skilton, it is not our purpose here to speak. 
These were best known and most highly appreciated by those who knew him best. 
To Historical and Antiquarian research, few men in this country devoted more time, 
or with better success. Of the American Association for tlie Advancement of Science, 
he was an active, zealous member. 



iv PREFACE. 

Connecticut, John and George Steele, is mainly due to the re- 
searches of Dr. Skilton. Gathered with unexampled perseverance 
and care from the Colonial, Town, Probate, and other Eecords in 
Connecticut, and from Cemetery Inscriptions and Family Eegis- 
ters, they present a true specimen of his accuracy and industry. 
And in respect to the whole work, while infallibility 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 varielics 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, whether from Family 
Records or from other sources, for the work, some manifested 
perfect ignorance and indifference. Others indicated suspicion of 
sinister motives in the inquirer, of some underhand measures in 
searching for titles to property, or of some other concealed pur- 
pose. The idea of any one troubling himself with inquiries of 
this nature, except for some pecuniaiy advantage, 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 of purpose, worthy of all commendation. 

In the preparation of this volume, not only information from 
private sources and unpublished records, but from all known 
historical works relative to the subject, have been consulted, as 
Trumbull's Colonial Records of Connecticut, Shurtleff's Records 
of Massachusetts, Cothen's Ancient Woodbury, Farmer's Genea- 
logical Register, Hollister's History of Connecticut, Hinman's 
Catalogue of Puritan Settlers, Goodwin's Genealogical Notes, New 
England Genealogical and Historical Register, &c. 

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 quaint 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 ofl'ered to

the public, with the hope tliat it will add something to the Genea- 
logical Ilistor)' of the Early Settlers of New England.

ledgments to Rev. AsiiBEL Strele of Wasliington, D. C., author 
of Ciiief of the Pilgrims : or, Life and Times of ICldcr William 
Urewsler, for many kind services, particularly in ;issisting in ])re- 
paring the Litroduction, and collecting historical information re- 
specting the life and public services of John Steele. Rev. Mr. 
Steele has been for a long time engaged in preparing the Gene- 
alogy of the Brewster Family, which will be a valuable addition 
to Genealogical History. D. S. D. 



A BRIEF ME:\rOTH 



JOHN STEELE, ESQ 

ONE OF THE PIONEERS IN THE FIRST SETTLEMENT 
OP CONNECTICUT. 



It has in all ages been esteemed a duty and privilege to honor 
the memory of those whose labors and self denial have result- 
ed in good to their country and to their race. Such tribute is 
justly due to those, whose labors and sore trials laid the founda- 
tions of colonies in this western world — colonies that have re- 
sulted in comparatively happy states, of which we ourselves have 
the privilege of 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 JVeio England, ])articularly in founding the colony of Connecti- 
cut, the subject of this memoir acted 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 nativit}-, we 
have no reliable information. 

Among those of the name, cotemporary 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 Edward Nichol, 
Esq. of Henderson, county of Middlesex, whose daughter married 
Sir Charles Bromtield, 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 societj^, organized in 1649, " to aid in 
publishing the Gospel among the Indians in New England." In 
the formation and success of this society, Winslow of the Ply- 



VUl STEELE FAMILY. 

moutL colony, when in England, was a most zealous and efficient 
agent.* 

Our John Steele, like tlie other two of the name just mentioned, 
appears to have been educated for the duties of the Magistrac}', 
and his apparent rank in life seems to have been well calculated 
for his advancement in that calling. Qualifled by education, en- 
ergy of character, and all the requisites for founding new settle- 
ments in a neiv world, and active and self-denying as he was in the 
enterprise, it is to be regretted that such limited information has 
been preserved respecting him. Even most of the particulars 
recorded would be passed over, were it not " that small things, in 
the beginnings of all communities, are of far higher importance, 
and more worthy of being noted, and have a more enduring in- 
fluence, than far greater matters, when a people or nation has 
become established." 

Mr. John Steele's name appears 7?r5< in connection with Dor- 
chester, one of the earliest settlements of the colony of Massachu- 
setts, in the year 1630,t ten years only after the arrival of the 
pilgrim company in the Mayflower. 

Next, he is found to have been one of the proprietors of Cam- 
bridge (first called Newtown), in 1632. Two others, George and 
Henry Steele, were also proprietors at the same time. Mr. John 
Steele, having been made freeman or elector by the court, in 1634, 
was elected a representative from Cambridge in 1635; Cambridge 
being designed to be the capital of the colony, as it was soon after 
the seat of the university. 

During this jjeriod, however, the numerous arrivals at Cam- 
bridge, and the want of pasture lands in the vicinity, induced a 
portion of the people, including a number of their chief men, 
with the Rev. Mr. Hooker, their pastor, to seek another location. 
Another inducement for their removal was, a dislike of some re- 
gulations, which were thought to circumscribe their rights as 
freemen. The proposed enterprise met with strong opposition, 
but at length its advocates obtained the consent of the majority; 
and Mr. John Steele, in the autumn of 1635, led the pioneer band 
through the rugged, pathless wilderness, to a new location on the 
Connecticut river. As Leader and Magistrate, he appears to 
have conducted the expedition safe!}' and wisely. Arriving late 
in the season, they had to endure all the hardships and trials of 
a severe winter, with the labors of clearing the forest, construct- 
ing their rude dwellings, securing food, and of protecting them- 
selves against cold and wet, the ravages of wild beasts, and the 
warlike savage. Bravely persevering, while other expeditions 
during the same season failed, and many perished, they succeeded. 
And in the ensuing summer came the main portion of their com-

pauy — men, women and children, with Iheir minister — to their 
new home. 

Here, on the mai-p;in of the river, near the Iiead of its navigable 
■waters, and through luucli toil, patient endurance, and trust in 
an Almighty ai'm I'ur success, they laid the foundations of a neio 
<oiOT,al'lei-wards named Hartford; and of a new colony (Connecti- 
cut), the third of the colonies of New England. And here, Iho 
subject of our narrative, as a faithful head of a family, as an 
active member of their church, as a magistrate, and as one of the 
principal members of their legislative — ^^judicial — colony court, 
aided in establishing a community, the duration, wisdom, and 
hnp])y influence of wliose institutions have been — with few excep- 
tions — the glory of the state. During 23 years elected to the 
principal colony court, he was present at 88 at least of its ses- 
sions, and engaged in its legislation and judicial decisions, and 
for 4 years its secretary or recorder. For nearly 20 years he 
was also recorder of the town of Hartford, and for a time re- 
corder of the town of Farmington.* 

During these years, he was likewise called upon to act on 
various principal committees or agencies, civil, military and 
ecclesiastical, for determining the contested claims and bound- 
aries of the colony ; for the peaceful acquisition of additional ter- 
ritory ; for raising troops for special expeditions among the 
hostile Indians — but especially were his exertions called forth in 
eflbrts to heal the sad breach, and to bring to a peaceful termina- 
tion that long and bitter controversy, occasioned b}' the require- 
ments for admitting members into their church, and of those who 
should present their children for baptism — whicli had caused a 
separation between their teacher and a portion of the congrega- 
tion on the one side, and those who were the dissentients, or had 
withdrawn, on the other. On these points he appears to have 
taken middle ground, as inclining to a less stringent course, but 
with others pleading with all the energy of heart and soul for 
reconciliation and peace. f 

Thus — nnambitious except to do good, and be faithful to every 
trust committed to him, 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 healtli 
caused him to retire from public duty, and as a Christian, to 
arrange all his worldly aft'airs, and to " commit his soul " into the 
hands of Him who gave it, " and into the hands of the blessed 
Savior, God ever gracious to him," and his body " to a decent 
and comely burial. "J 

* On the organization of Faraiiiigloii, ar.d its admission as a town by the court, it 
is added in tlie record : "And Mr. Steele is entreated for the present to he recorder 
there, until tlie town have one tit among tliemselves." — Col. Jicconis, i, 1, 134, &e.

X STEELE FAMILY. 

His closing years were passed in Farmington, and where 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, 1663-4. He died November 25, 1665. 



OF GEORGE STEELE, 

Who was also one of the pioneers in the Connecticut colony, 
we can furnish only a few particulars : 

His name appears but a lew times on the public records. All 
the circumstances respecting him compared, seem plainly to indi- 
cate that he was an elder brother of John Steele, Esq., whose 
memorial has just been given. With him he appears to have 
come to New England ; with him was proprietor of lands in New 
Town (afterwards Cambridge), in 1632 ; was admitted 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 1643, and also a plaintiff in three cases, before 
the genera] court, in 1644 and 1647. Other and minor notices 
we omit. His residence in Hartford, was on the lane, ]iow Wash- 
ington street, south-east of Trinity College. He died in 1663, 
" very old." 

Of his wife we find no record. He had 4 children, and his de- 
scendants have been very numerous ; many of them having fille- 
prominent stations in military life during the French war, and 
during the Amei'ican revolution. Not a few have held respond 
sible positions in civil life, and in the Christian ministry.* 




* Some 30 at least of the name have been educated in the New England College, 
10 of whom are knowu to have been graduated at Yale ; besides others in other 
parts of the country.

EXPLANATION. 



The iirst column of figures denotes the number of each individual, 
and is continuous throughout the book. The second column shows 
the number in each separate family, the eldest being numbered one. 
This is designed to be regular, although some families are not ar- 
ranged correctly. Figures immediately after the first name in each 
jiaragraph, in parenthe.sis, thus (50), refer back to the individual of 
the family in which he or slie is first named. Figures which are 
found after the name of a member of a family, in parenthesis, in- 
dicate to refer forward to that number, -vvhen that family is traced 
out. Example — on page 9 yoir will find next to No. 30, 

" Ckildieii of Sa3icel2 (S) and Mary [Boosey) Steel." 

By referring back to No. S, you will find the date of his birth, when 
married, and other information relating to him and his family. The 
small figure - after his name, shows that he is of the second genera- 
tion, and his children, which commence with 31, have the figure ", 
showing that they are the third generation. The eldest of this family 
is James, No. 31, and the numeral 1 adjoining, indicates that he is 
so. After his name occur the figures (64), and by turning forward 
to that number, the names of his children will be found, with all the 
information concerning them. The plan adopted in this work is 
the one recommended by the New England Historical and Genea- 
logical Register, and is presumed to be the best system in use.

THE FAMILY OF STEPHEN STEELE, 

OF TOLLAND. 



Rev. Stephen Steel was the ancestor of all the persons of that 
name who have resided in Tolland, Conn. He was a native of 
Hartford, where his father was a farmer ; their house stood iu 
what was some years since called Cooper lane (now Washington 
street), and is said to be yet standing, though modernized. Mr. 
Steel graduated at Yale College, in 171.8, and was the first settled 
minister in Tolland, in 1720, at a salary of .£75 a year, which was 
more than ten dollars from each family in the place, the town 
having been an unbroken wilderness until seven years previous. 
He was also furnished with a lot of land and other perquisites. 
He continued in the ministry, and much beloved until, being 
stricken with the consumption, in 1758, his relation to the society 
was peacefully dissolved, and he died in December, 1759. Eev. 
Mr. Steel married Ruth, daughter of Col. Hezekiah Porter of 
Hadley, Mass. ; another daughter of Col. Porter married Rev. 
Solomon Williams, and was ancestress of William Williams, one 
of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and Hon. 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 Aaron 
nothing particularly is known. James first settled in Tolland, and 
moved to Ellington in 1776 ; after the Revolution, went to Brook- 
field, Vt., to reside with his son Zadoc, and died about 1813. This 
James had been in the war of 1755, and received a lieutenant's 
commission, but was prevented by sickness from serving. His 
sou 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 New Jersey. A third (Samuel), and 
a fourth, whose name has been forgotten, were also in the army. 
Zadoc, after some service, emigrated to Brookfield, Vt., when in 
Oct. 1781, he was taken by the ]jarty of Indians that burnt Royal- 



STEELK FAMILY. 89 

lou. The captives were evcntuully in a jjrisoii on an i.sland iu tlio 
ra{)ids above Montreal, from which a number of them, including 
Zadoc Steel, made their escape. They dug a passage under the 
wall ol" the prison building, and the pickets witii whicli it was 
surrounded, yet so deep as to pass under the ditch. Steel, with 
three olliers, in a daric night, gained the outside, eluded the senti- 
nels, hastily rolled together a lew logs for a raft, and committed 
themselves to the rapids. They succeeded in lauding 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 finally 
succeeded in reaching the American settlements. Tiie allair, as 
related by ^Ir. Steel in a narrative, jjrinted at Montpelier, in 1S18, 
was one of Iho most intrepid adventures of the kind ever under- 
taken. Mr. Steel died a few years ago at Stanstead, Lower Canada. 
James, son of James, resided in Ellington, rintil his death in 1S19. 
lie was one of the earliest Methodists in that town, possessed 
much more than ordinary intelligence and ability. His son, Oliver 
Wolcott Steel, resides iu Ellington ; has been a member of the 
Assembly, and for man}' years Town Clerk and principal Justice 
of the Peace. He is a man of high respectability and much of an 
antiquarian. 

Stephen, Eleazar, Elisha and John Steel, lived and died in 
Tolland. Capt. Stephen Steel married Hannah, daughter of Sam- 
uel Chapman, Esq., of this town, in May, 1747. Mr. Chapman was 
a large landholder and a conspicuous ])ublic man. He commanded 
one of the companies that went from Connecticut to the siege of 
Louisburg, iu 1745, 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 1801. Capt. Steel 
was one of the Selectmen, from 1769 to 1773. The others of the 
minister's sons, also received their share of town meeting honors, 
for honors they certainly were, iu those days, when the most 
suitable men were carefully and even conscientiously selected for 
public officers. 

Sarah Steel, whose birth, from some neglect, was not placed 
on the town records, at the age of 16, married Dea. Elijah Chap- 
num, aged 19, son of Capt. Chapman, above mentioned, and during 
a long life, a higidy respectable and wealthj' 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 Lexington 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, cfec, 
&c. Ho commanded the third company from the head of the 
column, that stormed the redoubt at Yorktown. In 1824, La

Fayette recognized him as one of his former captains. After the 
war he rose to the ranlc of Major-Geueral of Militia. On the 
organization of Tolkmd county, in 1786, he was appointed sheriff, 
and held the office until his resignation, more than twenty years 
afterwards. Two of Dea. E. Ciiapman's grandsons have also been 
sheriffs of Tolland county. 

Mehitable Steel married John Huntington of Tolland, in 1749. 
Their sun, Hezekiah Huntington, was one of the most eminent 
early leaders of the Democratic party in this state, and was for 
many years, U. S. District Attorney I'or Connecticut. He died a 
few years ago at Middletown. His sons, Hezekiah, Francis J., 
and Samuel F., have been and are still prominent citizens of Hart- 
ford ; his daughter married Hon. Lester King of Ohio, who was a 
candidate for the office of Governor in that state, some years since. 
The Eev. Mr. Steel had numerous male descendants of the proper 
age for the Revolutionary arm3', and they were all out ; from the 
prison depot at Montreal to the prisons of New York ; from Rox- 
bury to Yorktown, there were not nrany scenes of general danger 
or sufi'ering, 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. But the tendency of such families in this counti-y is 
to finally disappear from the place 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 Mr. Steel lived and died, was built about 
125 years ago, by Josiah Goodrich, who married a daughter of 
Col. Porter. It was said to be the finest house between Hartford 
and Worcester ; after Mr. Steel's decease it was sold to his 
successor, Rov. Nathan Williams, who continued in it until his 
decease, in lo29 ; then after being inhabited 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 j^ainted 
with a reallj' elegant landscape. On the destruction or desecration 
of the house, these boards, then in good oi'der and looking fresh, 
were sold at thirty-four cents each, for fire-boards, where they 
would not be valued either for antiquity or workmansliip. A few 
years since Oliver W. Steel informed the writer that not long pre- 
vious, an old lad}' of this town told him, that she being about ten 
years old, was at meeting when Mr. Steel's growing infirmity so 
far prevailed, tliat he gave out and failed in tiie jjulpit. His sons 
helped him down and home, and according to the old lady, he 
officiated there no more. 



THOMAS STEEL. 



Of this iiulividual and liis descendants nothing definite is known 
as to their counection with the llartfbrd Steclcs; it is surmised l)y 
some I hat Tiiuuias Steel was a l;>rother of Jolm and (Jeorge. In 
collecting materials for the compilation of this volume, there has 
been recei%'ed genealogies of this and other i'amilies. It has been 
thought advisable that this mutter should be published for the

at Cambridge in 1730. He was bred a merchant, and pursued that 
business both before and after leaving Boston. He was a Loyalist

STEELES OF NEW YORK. 



John Steel, born in England ; came to the city of New York, 
as is said in consequence of a j^rosecution against him for marry- 
ing his deceased wife's sister ; his name appears as a freeman in 
1744 ; he had a son. 

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

times during the war ; he married Schureman from Holland, 

residing at Tappan on the Hudson river ; he had a son. 

Hon. William Steele, born in New York, May 20, 1762. He be- 
came subject to military duty in 1778, and immediately took an im- 
portant part in our Eevolutiouary struggle. Although his services 
were not of sufficient 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 was shortly after captured 
by the British frigate Iris, bearing dispatches of the surrender of

REY. CAPTAIN JOHN STEELE. 

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

Among the first companies organized in this township on the 
occasion of the bloody outbreak, by the Delaware Indians, iu 1775, 
Avas one selected for its Captain, Rev. John Steele, their Presb}'- 
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. — Pennsylvania Archives.

was educated at the Charter House school in London ; served in 
the army a few years ; was appointed Commissioner of the Stamp 
office; afterward member of House of Commons, from which he

120 STEELE FAMILY. 

was a promiuent contributor to " The Spectator," " The Tattler," 
" The Guardian," and was the author of many comedies, which 
were very popular in their day. 

RIGHT HON. THOMAS STEELE. 

The following notice of this person is taken from the " Gentle- 
man's Magazine," 1824 : 

The late Right Hon. Thomas Steele, who died Dec. 8, 1823, was 
eldest son of Thomas Steele, Esq., Recorder of Chichester, 1746, 
who died Sept. 30, 1775 ; was born in the year 1753, and educated 
at Westminster school, from whence he was elected to Cambridge 
in 1771. He became M. P. for Chichester in 1780, and which city 
he represented in every Parliament till the dissolution in April, 1807. 
By Charles III, Duke of Richmond, he was introduced to the late 
Right Hon. William Pitt, and by the same influence, appointed 
Secretary to the Tiicasury, in conjunction with the late Right Hon. 
George Rose, in Dec. 1784, upon the dissolution of Mr. Fox and 
Lord North's celebrated coalition administration. Both the secre- 
taries possessed the entire confidence and intimate friendship of 
Mr. Pitt, which continued without the smallest abatement till his 
death. 

Mr. Steele discharged the multifarious duties of this office, re- 
quiring no inconsiderable share of judgment, delicac)', and con- 
ciliation, to the entire satisfaction of his friend and patron for 
more than six years, as eventful as any recorded in English his- 
tor}-. 

On February 13, 1791, he was appointed (with 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, 1S04, by Lord Charles Somerset. He was likewise in 1797, 
appointed by Mr. Pitt to succeed his brother-in-law, the Hon. Ed- 
ward 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, Miss Lindsay, daughter of Sir 
David Lindsay, Baronet, and has left one son by her, a Lieut. 
Colonel in the Cold Stream Guards, married to the eldest daughter 
of the Dids:e of Manchester ; also two daughters, the eldest married 
N. W. Ridley Colborne, Esq., M. P. for Thetford, and the youngest 
to Henry John Conyers, ]']sq. of Copt Hall, Essex. 



MRS. ELIZABETH 

A.VD 

MRS. CATHERINE STEELE. 

OF TUK AMEKICAN REVOLUTION. 



^Irs. Ellett, in licr interesting work, the " Women of the Ameri- 
can Revohitioii," gives an account of the services of these ladies 
in the trying times of the Revolution. Hon. J. H. Wheeler, in iiis 
Historical Sketches of North Carolina, has also given a particular 
account of Mrs. Elizabeth Steele, as well as the services of her son, 
Hon. John Steele. From both of these works, I make the follow- 
ing extracts : 

"Connected with the history of Rowan county, N. C, and this 
deeply exciting period of her history, is the name of Elizabeth 
Steele, who was distinguished among the " women of the Revolu- 
tion," not only for her attachment to the cause of America, but 
for her prudence, piety and virtue. It was at her house, in the 
evening of the 1st of February, 1781, 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. Mrs. Steele heard this, and the fire of patriotism 
was augmented by that deep sympathy, 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 
desponding remark to Dr. Read. She drew from under her apron, 
two small bags of specie, her earnings for years. " Take these," 
she said, "for you will want them; I cau do without them." 
'■' Never," says his biographer, " did relief come at a more needy 
moment," and the hero resumed his dangerous journey that night, 
with a heart lightened bj' woman's kindness, and her devotion to 
the cause of her country." 

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

Filled with the mournful recollection of the sufterings of his 
country, and the innocent blood that even that day had been spilled 

15 



122 STEELE FAMILY. 

ty 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 the wall. 

This picture, with the writing still visible, is in the possession 
of Gov. Swain, at Chapel Hill. Mrs. Steele died on the 22d of 
November, 1790, at Salisbury. She was twice married ; her first 
husband was a Gillespie, by whom she had a daughter, who mar- 
ried Rev. Samuel McCorkle ; and a son, Richard Gillespie, who 
was a captain in the Revolution, 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 appeared in public life as a member of the House of Commons, 
and was re-elected in 17jS. He was a member of the convention 
that assembled at Hillsboro', on the 21st of July, 1788, to consider 
the constitution of the United States, and with Johnston, Davie 
and Iredell, made active but inefi'ectual efibrts in its defence. 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 1813, of which 
he was often Speaker. 

On the removal of Gen. Davie 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 documentarj' evidence that he conducted this delicate, 
protracted and difficult negotiation, Avith consummate ability and 
skill. 

He was appointed by Gen. Washington first Comptroller of the 
Treasury, which 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 daj^ he died. 

He was buried at his residence, now the seat of Archibald Hen- 
derson, Esq., near the town. He married in 1783, Mary Nesfield, who 
survived him many years, and b}' whom he left three daughters: 

Ann, who married Gen. Jesse A. Pearson ; Margaret, who mar- 
ried Dr. Stephen L. Ferrand ; and Eliza, who married Col. Robert 
McNamara. The following is a copy of his tombstone :

" Tho archives of tho country testify tlie services of his 

short, but usel'iiUife. Long will that country deplore 

liis hiss ; but ivlien will this sequestered spot 

cease to witness the sacred sorrow of his 

family and friends." 

Katherine Steel. This heroine was ol" a stamp rarely' seen or 
described in recent times. It needed a primitive couutr^y as well 
as unusual liardships and perils, to develope such lofty, yet unam- 
bitious heroism, sucli sagacity mingled with 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-lieartcd, high-souled matrons, is well 
uigh swept from earth ; but here and there recollections survive 
by which we maj' learn how noble Avas the race that nursed the 
nation's infancy. 

Katherine Fisher was a native of Pennsylvania ; when about 
twenty years old, she was married to Thomas Steel of the same 
place. Botli belonged to the race called Pennsylvania Irish, so 
many of whom emigrated to Carolina about the middle of the 
century. The young pair made their removal to South Carolina 
some time in 1745, to the upper, or what is called the granite region 
of the 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 unite 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 whicii 
the inhabitants could betake themselves, when 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 were in the habit of resorting on any alarm to this place 
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 the Fort." Possessing great influence, she could at once calm 



124 STEELE FAMILY. 

the fears of the women, who had quitted their homes at the dead 
hours of night to flee thither ; they felt, in fact, a sense of security 
in her presence. She taught the young girls the use of the rifle, 
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 thosefeelinganinclination to know more, reference is to be made 
to ilrs. EUett's Women of the Revolution, in which a full account 
is given. While on a trading expedition down the Mississippi 
river, Thomas Steele was supposed to have been killed by the 
Indians, his companions returned home bearing the sad news to 
his family. Mrs. Steel Avas now left alone Avith a family — three 
daughters and two sons. The sterling principles she instilled in 
their minds produced their fruit in the actions of after years, 
when trials even more severe than any she had undergone in early 
life, fell to her lot and theirs. 

The home of Sirs. Steel was at no great distance from that of 
John Gaston, Avhose family she and her children often visited, 
going in canoes up and down the stream. She was in the habit of 
sending for the newsjDaper, by Avhich she learned from time to 
time, what was going on during the first years of the war. On the 
call for men to organize a company, her son John Steel (who was 
then grown to manhood) was foremost in profi'ering his services. 
He was the head of the company from Chester, dispatched against 
the Cherokee Indians in the " Snow Campaign " of 1775. At the 
battle of Fort Moultrie, 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 memorable morning Avhen 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 Avith the rest. " You must go noAV," she said 
to him, " and fight the battles of our countiy, Avith 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 Avidow Steel's." 

Capt. John Steel, Avho has been called " the Murat of the 
Catawba river," was in every engagement during the summer of 
1780. On one occasion Avheu the little army were surjDrised by 
the British troops, in the night, Capt. Steel caught Gen. Sumpter, 
in his arms and carried him to a place of safety. He continued 
in active service during the campaign of 17S1. In the spring fol- 
lowing, he Avas married to Margaret Beard. Thomas Steel, the 
younger brother, married the sister of Margaret. Katherine Steel 
shoAved 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 Avere ended at the old fort in 1785. 



STEELE FAMILY. 125 

She was surrounded by lier children, all of whom were married. 
Her eldest son, who had I'ought so many battles, was killed in 
1812, by a fall from his horse ; her daiij^hter Marj^aret was married 
to Thomas Wylie ; .Mary to Robert Archer ; Nancy to Thomas 
J3ell. 

The descendants of this family of Steels have removed to the 
west, and are scattered through different States. The only one 
remaining in South Carolina is Mrs. Jane Thompson, the daughter 
of Capt. John Steel.
