Roda Elizabeth Leslie was born March 4, 1872 in Kentucky, daughter of J. A. Leslie and Eliza A. McGuffin. Both of Roda's parents were born in Kentucky.

The 1880 Federal Census for Hudsonville, Kentucky (Breckinridge County) shows Roda Leslie, age 7, born in Kentucky; living with her father, John Leslie, a farmer, age 30, born in Kentucky; and her mother, Eliza A., age 28; born in Kentucky. Also living in the household were Roda's four siblings: Edwin R. Leslie, age 10; Josephine Leslie, age 8; Lucy Ann Leslie, age 6; and Theophalus Leslie, age 2; all born in Kentucky. The family was living next door to Eliza's parents, W. J. and Lucy A. McGuffin, and her younger siblings.

On July 1, 1891 in Collin County, Texas, Roda married R. J. Steele. That marriage is recorded in Texas Marriages, 1837-1973. Roda and R. J. subsequently had at least one child, Ora Belle Steele, born July 1, 1893 in McKinney, Texas (Collin County). Roda second married H. E. Pittman.

Roda died at age 49 in Grayson County, Texas on January 16, 1922, and was buried there in the Oakwood Cemetery. Roda's daughter, Ora Belle Steele Adams, is also buried in that cemetery along with her husband and some of her children.
