Gathering of the clan (p. 3)
"By 1770, Robert Steele had achieved his majority. Leaving his father's home, he traveled back to prince Edward County, whre he courted and married Mary Keeling. Soon after their marriage, Robert and Mary joined with others who were moving westward to the New River Vallely. Indian raids were not as frequent or severe as they had been back in the 1750s and with the greater numbers now moving into the New River Valley, Robert obviously felt more secure in returning to the place of his youth. There Robert, with his bride settled, and was listed among the Tithables in 1772, joining Samuel Steele who had settled there about a year earlier.
"The development of a home and family had hardly commenced when Robert and Samuel made a trip to North Carolilna. The trip appears to have been made rather suddenly. We know from family legend, Reubenattempted to make a business trip to his homeland and was tragically lost at sea on the return voyage. It is supposed the news of Reuben's death necessitated thier unexpected trip, perhaps there was family busihness to settle an a mother to look after. Their stay in North Carolina was short and after a period Robert returned to the New River Valley."
