Per family Bible GGparents were Jacob P Steffey 10/22/1847-02/28/1918 Sarah Ellen Steffey(maiden) Steffey 07/06/1851-06/27/1922.GGGparents were David 04/27/1816 (born) and Rebecca Cormany Steffey who married on Oct 02, 1836. Per bible David Rebecca were Sarah Ellen Steffey Steffey's parents. Does not show in David Steffey pedigree. Did the person who did David Rebecca unaware they had a daughter named Sarah?? In same bible reference to John Franklin (Steffey???) born Sept 26, 1817. Was he Jacob P. Steffey's Father? Thanks for help.

Do you have any record of a John Wesley Steffey in
your family bible? I need to know who his parents
were. He was from Rural Retreat, Wythe Co.
Thank you for your time.

Would your Steffey Family Bible list the children of Michael Steffey (died in Rural Retreat in 1814)?

Jacob Steffey

I have been reading the postings in search of information about Conrad Steffey/Steffy/Stiffey and other variant spellings.

I saw your reference to a Jacob Steffey. I have a Jocob Steffey b. abt 1846 and am wondering if he is connected to your line.

My Jacob's father was Conrad Steffy. Both were born in Pennsylvania but Conrad's father was born in Virginia. Would there be any reference to a Conrad in your family? I have no idea when my Conrad moved to Pennsylvania.

The 1860 census shows:

Conrad Steffy age 45 laborer born PA
Sarah age 38
Isaac L. age 16
Jacob age 14
Edward age 10
Sarah A. age 8
James age 3

Judging by the parents' ages, there are probably older children that I have yet to find!

I cannot find him in the census index for 1850.

If you have any link with the family I would love to hear from you.

This was my Great-Great Grandfather. I did about 8 months of traveling and research last year for a reunion we had. I have all marriage lic. back as far as the 1700's when the Steffeys came to America from Switzerland. If you would like more information please contact me. I have a copy of his marriage lic. along with his brothers Pleasant J. Steffey. These 2 brothers married sisters.

I am the ggranddaughter of John Wesley Steffey who married Hannah Nichols. Their son George Steffey was my grandfather. George married Virginia Nichols. Their son who is my father was Charles McCoy Steffey who married Hazel Marie Fife in Pike Co., Ky. Are we looking at the same John Wesley Steffey?
