I'm hoping to find someone working on my branch of the Springsteel family. James R. Springsteel was born in 1811. Possibly the son of Remsen Springsteel. He married Ruth Terry. They had about 8 children. William R. - Ellen Jane - Ralph J. and Elizabeth Springsteel that I am sure of. I believe they also had George W. and Joseph and two more children names unknown to me. James and Ruth lived in Haverstraw New York. He was a blacksmith by trade and he died 20 January 1876. Ruth died 29 August 1869. They are both buried in Mount Repose Cemetery in Haverstraw. I do not have either of their birth dates.
