Hi Steele Cousins,

I came across some info and thought I would pass it along to your. It comes from "Some Tennessee Heroes of the Revolution; compiled from Pension Statements by Zella Armstrong.

Samuel Steele applied for revolutionary pension while living in Monroe County, Tenn., Sept 18, 1832. He was born in 1760. He enlisted in April or May 1781 in Virginia Troops whicle he was living in Augugsta County, some of his officers being Capt. Samuel McCutcheon, Capt. Francis Long, Col. William Bowyer, Col. McCrary, Col Hubbert. He was in the battle of Hotwater. He moved to Tennessee after the Revolution. He died in Monroe County, April 6, 1845. His widow, Hannah Harrison Steele, applied for widow's pension while living in Jefferson County, Ala., Aug. 6, 1855, when she was 78 years old. Therefore born 1777. The marriage took place in Blount County Tenn., May 19, 1817.

Hope this helps someone out there!

Regards, Cousin Jodi
