Not the Oliver Hazard Perry Steele.  I am seeing conflicting information.  He was born in 1823, according to the 1860 census in Pennsylvania, but the 1870 says Ohio.  He's been listed as Perry O. Steele and Oliver P. Steele.  He is the father of Dr. Andrew T. Steele, William P. Steele, Mary Louise Steele, Sarah Steele, Fanny A. Steele, and Lucy Steele.  I cannot locate him anywhere other than Illinois which is where he moved to in 1837 and married in 1843.

I'd be very interested in communicating with you as I am the great-granddaughter of Andrew T. Steele, MD and have been trying to locate information on this family for many years.  

The information I have on Oliver Perry Steele is the same as your's and I'm afraid I haven't had much luck trying to locate anything more except for his burial information (see below)

Born:  1823 in Philadelphia, PA

Moved to IL:  Oliver P. Steele, a native of the city of Philadelphia, who came to Clark Co. in 1837, where he resided till his death, which occurred Oct. 2, 1872

Married:  Nancy K. Twilley in Clark County, Illinois on 5/14/1843

Buried:  Walnut Prairie Cemetery ~ http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=23363449

I want to know what happened to Nancy, Oliver's wife.  Did she remarry and move with her son William to Kansas?
