Karen I hope this finds you. Its been a long time since you posted this message! I have Jacob Steelsmith, my 2xG Grandfather born clarion county Penn. in 1803. He married Catherine Mewrcer. He had a younger brother called John. I also have copies of some antique letters written by Peter Steelsmith in 1831-34 and posted in Tuscarawas. Maybe there is a connection?
My mother was Sylva Steelsmith daughter of Edgar Andrew Steelsmith
