Does anyone have any information on Catherine and her family. I believe she is my 5x great grandmother. She was married to Christopher Steel / Stihl who died in Frederick Co, MD - I have his will and estate records. Their children were:
Elizabeth, Abraham, Catherine, Mary (my 4x grt grmother), Hannah, Susanna, Sarah, Eve, Solome and Christopher.
At the time when Christopher Steel's property was sold (1787) she had remarried as she signed as Catharine Bowman, alias Steel. She later married Christian Fry and died in Fairfield Co, OH.
I do have a problem with the birthdate of 1767 as she had ten children under age 21 in 1782 when Christopher Steel died.
