Steels in the Revolutionary War

The DAR Genealogical Review lists about 135 Steels (with spellings: Steel, Steele, Steelman) in The Revolutionary War (http://services.dar.org/public/dar_research/search_adb/default.cfm). Of course, Steele was as common then as Jones or Smith are today. After the Ulster Land War of 1770, a lot of Steel(e)s got kicked out of Ireland. There are at least 20 paternal lines that emigrated to America, and only one that seems to have been an ancestor.

  1. Dennis Hammack says:

    I have Steele, Andrew Ancestor #: A108137 in my tree, he was a 1st cousin 8x removed. However, I have him as being a Captain, not a Private.

  2. Robert Steele says:

    Yea !!! At the end of page 1 and the top of page 2, I found my ancestor, Alexander Steele Sr., #: A108133. He is my fourth great grandfather (or my fifth grandfather), born 1735 and died 25 June 1808. Wow, I do thank you. I checked all 22 pages and did not find another known name for the Revolutionary War, 1775 – 1783. Robert D. Steele, Dallas, Texas. RSteele185@aol.com

  3. Harley Steele says:

    Thanks for the research. My 4th Great Grandfather, Francis Steele is amongst the names on this page. He was an Ensign in the Revolutionary War. And here I thought I was the first military officer in my family. 🙂

  4. Larry Liles says:

    I just found my 5th Great Grandfather William Atwood who died in August 1804 while being employed as Overseer for General Steel in Rowan County NC. Found info in the UNC Library collection about John Steele, who died in 1846, and was a Major General in the Militia. Was a congressman also. He has not been proven into the DAR. Just FYI. http://www2.lib.unc.edu/mss/inv/s/Steele,John.html
