Robert Steele is my 5th Great Grandfather. He left his family home about 1770 and returned to Prince Edward County in Virginia where he married Mary "Polly" Keeling, and settled back in the New River Area about 1771 or 1772. A hurried trip back to North Carolina by Samuel and Robert in 1773 is presumed to be connected to the death of Reuben who was lost at sea. Mary died in the late 1780's and her 7 childres grew up without her. Robert then married Rebecca Oury, a daughter of Wendel Oury and Katherine Peterpenner about a year later. This union produced 8 children. Robert's history is well documented in the book "A Gathering Of The Clan" by Carl Steele Jr. His military service is listed in the company of Capt Alexander Sayers. His will is recorded in 1821 shortly before his death and is listed in Carl Steele's book. It is not known if Robert was able to read or write since his last will was signed with an X and prefaced with "Rob" and witnessed by Samuel Repass, John Cregar and William Perry.

Mary Keeling's middle name seems to be "Helen". The name Kelen is carried through the family and several girls are so named. It is known that she was born and raised in Prince Edward County, Virginia and met Robert there when his family was temporarily displaced from Wythe County by Indian attacks. Robert's father Reuben, took his family to the Yadkin valley in North Carolina from their retreat in Prince Edward County and Robert brought Mary back to Wythe County after they were married about 1772. Mary's father and mother have been researched without success.
