Daughter of Calvin Lafayette Nuckolls &
Mary Ann Clay
One of three children;
2 brothers

Member of the Pitt River And Nome Lackie Indians of Round Valley Agency

Married Thomas Steele
Mother of three children;
1892 Mary Ann (Smith) d. 1959 CA
1894 Bert Nathaniel
1896 (01 Jun) Thomas Calvin

Following the death of Thomas, Mary married Thomas Ayalla. He had a daughter named Martha b. abt 1888. In 1900 they were all living on an Indian reservation (Round Valley) in Mendocino Co, CA

I surmise that Thomas Steele must have died about the time of Thomas Calvin Steele's birth since Mary had already married before the younger Thomas was three.

By 1910 Mary's daughter, Mary Ann, had given birth to her own daughter; born about 1908 and named Esther. Mary Ann would have been only 16 and unmarried at the time of Esther's birth. Her daughter carried the Steele surname.

Married Thomas Ayalla
Mother of one son;
1900 James Marvin
