Biography

Steel, s. Thomas & Mary, b. Sept 20 1729.[1]

Married 1) Lois Unknown and 2) Elizabeth (Andrus) Curtis.[2]

Marriage: ABT 1749, Farmington, Hartford, CT

Steele Smith, (the first settler of the town) dismissed to the Baptist church 5 APR 1812.

The first settlement in the town of Windsor, VT began with the arrival of Captain Steele Smith and his family. He removed from Farmington, Conn, to Windsor in August, 1764.

Capt. Steele Smith, son of Thomas Smith, who was born in 1700, was a notable figure in the early settlement of Vermont. He was a native of Farmington, Conn., and headed a party of pioneers who passed up the Connecticut river in boats and founded the town of Windsor. Vt. Capt. Smith was the first settler in this town. He became an extensive land owner. He was a man of local prominence and took an active part in the early history of that region.

The Old South Church Cemetery has a grave of Elizabeth Curtis Smith, "wife of Capt Steel Smith" (#21673427). More research needed to see if Elizabeth or Lois, or both, were wives of Capt Steel Smith.

Before marking his father as "confirmed with DNA", please add a statement to this profile documenting the two matching Y-DNA tests used to confirm his relationship to his father in the format documented here: Help:DNA_Confirmation#Y-Chromosome_Confirmation.
