James Steele
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1865
Ross County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 19, 1942
Franklin County
Ohio, USA

James Steele was my grandfather, but he died before I was born. James married Susie Healey. They had five children: Eddie, who died at 18 months of meningitis, Lela, who died at the age of 17 of heart problems, Dewey, who married and had children, Ruth, who married Walter Johnston and had five children and died in her late 80s, and Helen, who married Ray Alspaugh, and had three children: Gerald, Gloria, and me. James was a barber. His mother reportedly was married four times. James was buried November 23, 1942.

Since James did leave his family, I don't have much info on him, but am currently searching Ohio Historical Society's archives for his DOB and parents' names. Still no luck with the DOB but his father was Benjamin Steele and his mother Frances Goss. They were originally from Chillicothe, Ohio.
