Isaac STEFFEY , Julia WENDT - Ohio

I am searching for information (or sources to check) on my Great Grandfather Isaac STEFFEY (STEFFY) and his ancestors. My family has no birth, death or other dates for this generation.

Isaac married a Julia Ann WENDT (or WYANDT?) in Ohio and they had the following children:

George McClellen (my Grandfather), born 12/18/1886 in Zanesville, Muskingum Co., OH. George came to OR from OH circa 1914 and married Laura BERLAND of Enterprise, OR. She died circa 1921 and George married my Grandmother Phoebe FRENCH in Portland, OR in 1922.

David Otto (married Lillian).
Flora (married PLOTTS/POTTS and had 4 sons).
Emmett (Emmet ?).
Arthur (married Hazel, had son Leonard).
There may be other siblings.

The closest I have come to Issac and Julia is an LDS entry for a marriage between an Isaac STEFFY and Julia Ann WYANDT in 1871, Tuscarawas, OH but I cannot verify them as "my" Steffeys.

My Mother believes Julia was from MI originally, and Julia died (in Ohio?) in 1932 "at the age of 70 years," so I am estimating her birth as circa 1862.

Arthur died circa 1929, just before his son Leonard was born, probably in the Seattle or Everett Washington area. Mom believes that Hazel probably stayed in that area and that was where Leonard was born, but we have no confirmation.

Thanks for your time; I appreciate any assistance anyone could offer!
