I came across a gentleman a few years ago who did an indepth study of the Steele's and in fact we are a sept of the MacGregor clan. One of our Scotish ancestors was a MacGregor when the king of england outlawed the clans and, he took his wife's name. One of his sons came to America(Galic for HEAVENLY KINGDOM by the way,not amergo vwspuchi, rember most of the May Flower pilgrams were Galic speakig Irish, but I diegress.)and he married and had 8 sons and settled in the Penn... area his first wife died he re-married and had 8 more sons who fought in Am-rev...war(so our wivews & daughters can be members of the D.A.R.dau... Am...rev...)then the Steele's spread into Ohio and Tenn...then after the war of nortern agression(which unfornitualy some Steele's were on the wrong side.)some of the clan spread out toward Washington st and south to the Santa rosa Calif... area (they were into the dairy ind...)also check out Ft. Steele Wy...and also Ft. Steele canada.
