I have an original carte de visite photograph (typical of those taken during the early 1870s) of “Charley Franklin Steele”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Minneapolis (Hennepin Co.) MN and Charley looks to be about one year old.
I found Charles F. Steele in the 1900 census for St. Paul (Ramsey Co.) MN, showing his birth as Aug 1872 in MN. His parents were Charles S. Steele and Fannie.There were at least two other men named Charles F. Steele, born in OH, both in about 1881 – but based on the Minnesota base for this baby boy, I feel sure he is the son of Charles S. and Fannie. Charles S., wife Fannie and son Charles lived in St. Paul (Ramsey Co.) state census for 1905.
