Steen researcher Lynn Brown ( reported a William Christopher Steen whose father was from South Carolina, whose mother was from Georgia, and who was born in Missouri on January 15, 1832. This William C. Steen married SUSANNAH BERTHOLF at Winterset, Madison County, Iowa and they had at least 11 children in Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas. The children, not necessarily in order of birth, were NORA, NARCISSA, JAMES TOWNSEND, ALICE, BELLE, MARY M., LUCINDA A., GEORGE, CHARLES P., and HENRY EARL.

Thatís about all the information I have on your William Christopher Steen except that James Steen, born in South Carolina in 1767, had at least 4 sons, Christopher, Richard, William, and George. James, William , Christopher, and Richard apparently migrated from Georgia to Missouri sometime before 1830. The 1830 census of the Big River Community, Jefferson County, Missouri shows James, Christopher, and Richard living there and William was living in adjoining Franklin County.

One of Richardís sons, John Brannon Steen (my great grandfather) migrated to Bosque County, Texas about 1860. The book, ďThe Steen Family, in Europe and America), published in 1900 and again in 1910 by Dr. Moses Steen, quotes Judge John Andrew Steen of Paint Rock, Texas as saying that a Christopher C. Steen (known as the Kit Steen family, was living in Bosque County during or after the civil war. I have been unable to finda Christopher Steen in the Texas census records of this period.

Incidentally, Richard Steen had a son named Christopher Marion, born in Missouri in 1837, so Christopher was apparently a common name among the James Steen descendents.

I have very little information on James Steen (my GGG grandfather) other than that gleaned from the 1850 census of Laclede County, Missouri, which shows him at age 83 living with Richard Steenís widow, Juda McCarrell Steen.

I would be happy to share any other information in my records.
