I'm searching for descendants of any of the 17 children of Peter Steffey b-Nov. 12, 1782 SE Penn. d-Nov. 1863 Williamsport, Washington Co. MD & his wife Catharine Tritle b-April 21, 1788 Martinsburg, W. Virg.They were married Dec. 16, 1804 in Washington Co. MD.Catharine's father was Jonathan Tritle, Revolutionary War hero who served with George Washington at Valley Forge.Peter & Catharine's children were:
*Jonathan Steffey b-1805 *William A. Steffey b-1807 Pennelia Steffey b-1809 *Lewis Steffey b-1810 Catherine Steffey b-1812 Andrew J. Steffey b-1814 Caroline Susan Steffey b-1816 *Emily Elizabeth Steffey b-1818 *Charles Howard Steffey b-1819 Emory Edwend Steffey b-1820 *Benjamin Otto Steffey b-1821 (my husband's line) Caroline Susan Steffey b-1823 Sarah Steffey b-1825 Jane Steffey b-1828 Peter Steffey b-1829 Martha Jane Steffey b-1831 Ann Cornelia Steffey b-1833
Those with a * were known to be alive in 1868 when Peter's estate was settled. I have copies of the book "The Steffeys In America From Colonial Days To The Space Age" by Marguerite Steffey Snyder c 1964 which chronicles this family.Marguerite is my husband's 1st cousin once removed & she is 93 yrs. old. I have created a MyFamily.com site for the descendants of Peter & Catharine Steffey.If you are related, please contact me.We have William A. Steffey's line represented as well as Benjamin Otto's.
