Ray was born November 10, 1888 in Bethany, Missouri in a log cabin on the family farm. He was the ninth of ten children. Growing up he had a pet donkey that went everywhere with him. His mother died with a number of the children when he was quite small. Probably one of the epidemic stories that plagued the west years ago.
After his mother, Rebecca died, his father Amos remarried Mahalia Styles and in 1895 the family went to the Oklahoma Cherokee Strip land rush. Amos and some of the older children staked out property and homesteaded in the Blackwell Oklahoma region.
Being from a large family and being without direction in some of his earlier formative years, it is not surprising that Ray Steed was a bit rough around the edges.
He married Sylvia Coulter in Ringwood, Oklahoma on Nov 8, 1908. A year and a half later (1910) the couple was in Sterling Texas and Ray was a cowboy herding cattle for a local rancher. While in Sterling the couple had Evart, their first born. About two years later (1912), the couple had moved north to Tyler, where they had Vera Mae. Then, two years later (1914) they had moved northwest to the Dallas/F. Worth area of Texas. Here while on the Hicks ranch, the couple had the third child Raymond H. Steed.
