Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family lineage is through George Steel(e) who settled in Bedford County, PA. That lineage is George, Philip, George, George, Moses, Charles Edward and Paul Victor Steele. My family moved to Holmes Co, Ohio and Moses and many family members migrated to St. Joseph Co, Indiana where most of us have stayed in the general area. I have 3 grown children, 4 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren.

I am fairly new to deep genealogy but have always wanted to know who my family was.

I am willing to take photos of local cemeteries if requested. I like to take photos of the area where the interment is to give the viewer a little better sense of the tranquility of the cemetery. I am a member of Friends of Silverbrook, the city owned cemetery here in Niles. We do restoration work on many of the headstones at the cemetery. Take some time to visit the website.

Janet, thank you so much. I can't believe I didn't add her myself a long time ago. I guess she slipped through the cracks.

Hi Janet,

How are you?

Thank you so much for all of your help.

Some day I wish to come to Niles to explore the area and the Silverbrook cemetery.

I got an email from someone doing research on the Strong family and had found some Strongs in the Silverbrook cemetery.

She is looking for Herbert Griffin Strong a baby who died at just a year old. His birth day is October 16, 1861 and death is September 16, 1862.

I was not able to find it on find a grave website but maybe I can go to Silverlake cemetery website to find it.

Let me know if you can find it.

Anything interesting that you have found?
