Francis Marion "Frank" Steele (1847-1883)

Francis Marion "Frank" Steele was born in Limestone County, Texas on March 4, 1847.

He was the son of Alfonso Parcutt Steele and Mary Ann "Polly" Powell.

Frank was the fourth of seven children born to Alfonso and Polly Steele.  His siblings included Hampton, Alonzo, Alvarado, Leonard, Mary Ann "Molly" and Missouri Alice Steele.

His marriage to Lucinda Chisum ca. 1865 connected two families whose descendants and a sibling would eventually settle in my hometown, the small village of Sicily Island, Catahoula Parish, Louisiana.

Following their marriage, Frank and Lucinda Steele made their home in Kosse, Limestone County, Texas.

Children born to this marriage were:

Frank Steele was my paternal great-great grandfather through his son Isham Alfonso "Al" Steele.

Francis Marion "Frank" Steele passed from this life on December 11, 1883 and is buried alongside his wife in the Thornton Cemetery in Thorton, Limestone County, Texas.
