We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    Born Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Male 
    Died Aft May 1812 
    Notes 
    • According to the Jordan source, only his sons Peter, Joseph and Horatio married and had issue. No further information is given on any of them.

      This is perhaps the John Steel listed among the inmates (married renters heading households) in the 1799 taxables of Newtown Township, Delaware Co.

      He was named along with his sister Martha as an Executor of their mother's estate in her will written 6 May 1812.

      Possibly the John Steel buried at Newtown Square Friends' Cemetery, noted as having died 10 May 1837. Many of his Steel family and their families are buried in this same cemetery.
      He definitely had died before May 1856 when his sister Martha decribed him in her will as her deceased brother.
