Re: Frances ( Steffey) b-February 26, 1840 MD/PA

In Reply to: Frances ( Steffey) 1841 MD/PA by twporcelli of 361

Hi Terry,
I can help you with your request. Your Frances Steffey, who was actually b-February 26, 1840 (not 1841) was the granddaughter of Peter Steffey/Catharine Tritle who had 17 children in Williamsport, Washington Co. Maryland. Six were living when Peter's estate was settled in 1868. My husband descends from their 10th born, Benjamin Otto Steffey & his wife Mary Catharine Johnson. The father of your Frances, William A. Steffey was their 2nd born of the 17 children. He was b-December 11, 1807 & d-1891 & is buried in the Riverview Cemetery in Williamsport, as is Clara. After your Clara died, William remarried to Caroline S. Baker on September 27, 1843 & had 6 more children with her. I have photos of William & Caroline's shared headstone, as well as Clara's. In fact, one of Clara's descendants is Jean (Biggs) Bowman who descends from your Frances' older brother,Edward Peter Steffey, thru his daughter Lena Watson Steffey (her grandmother). Both Jean & I have visited the Riverview Cemetery & taken photos of all our Steffey family members headstones that we could find, as well as other photos of the former Steffey homes in Williamport. Jean & I are co-administrators of the MyFamily site called "Descendants of Peter Steffey". Since these are private, password protected, by invitation only sites, if you will send me your e-mail, I'll send you an invitation to the site. Click on my name to see my e-mail. We welcome any descendants of Peter Steffey/Catharine Tritle to our site.

The following Descendant Outline for Peter & Catharine Steffey covers just the first three generations, but I have much more. Emery Edmond Steffey/Wilhelmina Crear were my husband's great-grandparents.
