Although my husband, also a Steffey descendant, is not related to Dale Steffey, I do have contact with Dale's 1st cousin, Kenya Sue (Steffey) Beasley who is related to me through our shared Talbert Ancestry. She told me that they are descended from Ulrich Steffey.
Dale is the s/o Emil Loren Steffey/Roseline J. [--?--]; grandson of Samuel Roy Steffey/Goldie Mae McCarty. But I haven't tracked his line any further back, since my husband's line is from the Pennsylvania Peter Steffey (1782-1863) & Catharine Tritle (1788/abt 1844). She was the daughter of Jonathan Tritle who served at Valley Forge with George Washington during the Revolutionary War.
There is a memorial plaque in Jonathan's honor in the Bell Tower at Valley Forge, placed there by his g-g-g-granddaughter, Marguerite (Steffey) Snyder, who just passed away on Jan. 21, 2011 at the age of 102 years, 6 months, 9 days. She was my husband's 1st cousin, once removed and a very remarkable woman who wrote her book in 1964, "The Steffeys In American - From Colonial Days To The Space Age". Remaining copies of her book can be obtained from the Washington County Historical Society in Hagerstown, Maryland.
