George Steen was born in the north of Ireland December 16, 1758 (probably confused with date of death), and emigrated to the United States of America about 1775 with his two brothers, James and John, and located in what is now Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he continued to reside for many years. In May, 1833, he sold his farm and other possessions in Pennsylvania and removed with his family to what was then the Far West, and located in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, where he purchased a farm in Sheffield Township, upon which he continued to reside until his death, December 16, 1836, at the age of 78 years. When George Steen removed from Pennsylvania to Indiana he located near two of his sons, who had previously settled there. George Steen was a prosperous farmer and a man of sterling worth, a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church, in which faith all his children had been brought up. He was married in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, about 1792, to Anne Gualt, she having been born July 26, 1776, and died May 21, 1857, in the eighty-first year of her age. To George and Anne Gualt Steen were born six children, as follows : Letitia H., George H., Agnes W., Joseph, John and Jane Steen.
