I'm descended from Jesse's son Henry.I have a little more information, although I cannot vouch for its complete accuracy, as I got it second-hand several years ago from the Worldconnect project (Sealock database and Baker Family database).Here's what I know for sure from my own research:
From Frederick Co., VA (or Warren Co.--my notes are unclear) Deaths:
Jesse Steed, Sr. d. 1 Apr 1853, age 93.born Frederick Co., VA.husband of Eva.reported by Thomas J. Steed, son.
What I've got from worldconnect:
Jesse R. Steed, s/o John Steed and Mary Randolph.born 1761 in Frederick Co., VA., died 1 Apr 1854 in Warren Co., VA.buried Stokes Cemetery.married Eva Rosenberger (b. 1767 in Lancaster Co., PA) July 1789 in Church of Germany Congregation, Martinsburg (W)VA.
Mary Randolph, b. 1725.d/o Simon Randolph.married 1746, location unk.
children of John and Mary Steed:
1) Jesse Robert b. 1797, Shenandoah Co., VA
2) Henry, b. 1788, Berkeley, Shenandoah Co., VA
3) John, b. 1 May 1791
4) Thomas Jefferson, b. 13 Feb 1805 in Fork District of what is now Warren Co., VA
5) Sallie, b. 1794 or 18 Jan 1813
6) Elizabeth, b. 1800
In the 1850 Warren Co., VA census, Jesse Sr. is living in the following household:
p. 19A, household #276
Supinger, Christopherage 50, Farmer
Supinger, Christiana,age 60
Martin, Rebecca,age 44Farmer
Martin, George W.,age 15
Martin, Amanda J.age 14
Martin, William,age 11
Martin, James M.age 9
Martin, John T.,age 5"idiotic"
Steed, Jesse,age 92Farmer
I do not know what the connection is, although I suspect that Jesse is living with the family of one of his children.
And finally,I have lost the source for this (I didn't take real great notes on sources for a while), but I believe this is from an early census of Shenandoah Co., VA.In Shenandoah County, (Dunmore) Campbell's List, Nov. 1775, I found the following:
John Steed household
1 WM over age 16
1 WM under age 16
2 WF no age
I do not know if there is any connection with this John Steed and the one thought to be the father of Jesse Sr.Hope this helps, and best of luck.I have more on some of Jesse's children/ grandchildren if you're interested.
