This line emmigrated from Switzerland in 1835 and settled in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. Here is a sketch of the first generation of Steeby's in America from my web site ( - select Thede Family History):

JOHANNES STÜBI (33) is the son of Christian Stübi and Elisabeth (Zimmermann) Stübi. Johannes was born in 1810 in the municipality of Wattenwill, Canton of Bern, Switzerland. On July 10, 1835, Johannes and his brother, Gottlieb, left Switzerland and immigrated to United States. On December 27, 1837, Johannes Stübi, married Catherine Buehler in Ohio. Catherine was born on April 3, 1813 in Wattenwill, Canton of Bern, Switzerland. In 1840, John “Steeby” was listed in the 1840 census of Tuscarawas County, Ohio. From 1850 to 1860, John and Catherine “Steeby” were listed in the 1850 census of Tuscarawas County, Ohio. John and Catherine Steeby were the parents of nine children:

............John Steeby (33.1), b. April 21, 1839, Ohio
............Dannie Steeby, b. 1843, Ohio
............Frederick Steeby (33.3), b. December 1, 1843, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............Mary M. Steeby, b. June 27, 1846, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............Rosa Anna Steeby (34), b. April 20, 1848, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............David Steeby (33.6), b. January 12, 1850, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............Catherine Steeby, b. March 2, 1852, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............Rudolph John Steeby (33.8), b. January 4, 1854, Tuscarawas County, Ohio
............Magdalena Steeby

In 1870, John and Kathrina “Stuebe” were living in Allegan County, Michigan. John Steeby, Sr. died on August 16, 1875 and Catherine (Beuhler) Steeby died on May 16, 1883. Dannie Steeby died in childhood. Catherine Steeby died at the age nineteen. Magdalena Steeby died in infancy. Rosa Anna Steeby married John Aubil, both direct ancestors of the authors. For additional information on the descendants of John and Rosa Aubil, see the sketch of John Aubil (13). Over 200 pages of the book, “The Steeby Family Tree,” by Maude (Bennett) Steeby, 1982, include only the decsendants of John and Catherine Steeby.
