Samuel Steele

Evidence from newspaper, census, and genealogical records proves the Steele family traveled to Utah in 1851. That he married soon after his arrival in Utah (or en route), received a patriarchal blessing in Utah in Oct. 1851, and did not appear on the Utah census taken in spring 1851 is proof that he traveled to Utah in 1851.
