FRIEDRICH STEEB

FRIEDRICH STEEB. Throughout the length and breadth of the county there can be found no more loyal foreign-born citizen than Friedrich STEEB, of Levin. Mr. STEEB is a son of Friedrich and Magdaline (MAGLEY) STEEB, natives of Germany, whose family consisted of the following children: Friedrich, mentioned at length hereinafter; John; Christopher; and Caroline, who is the wife of Carl COLMER, of Trenton, New Jersey. The three sons are also residents of the United States.

Friedrich STEEB, son of Friedrich and Magdaline (MAGLEY) STEEB, was born November 21, 1844, in Germany, and in 1870 emigrated to the United States. He settled in Gardenville, Pennsylvania, where he was employed by Nathan FRETZ, and about twenty years ago purchased the old Kratz farm in New Britain township. Since that time he has been an enterprising and successful agriculturist, his prosperity being the result of the industry and thrift which he has excercised all his life. As a citizen he possesses the highest esteem of all his neighbors. Politically he is a member of the Democratic party. In matters of religion he is identified with the German Lutheran church of Hilltown. Mr. STEEB married in Germany, Louise HAFFNER, a native of that county, and they are the parents of the following children: Charley, born November 6, 1866, in Germany, and died in Bucks county at the age of seven years; Annie, born August 17, 1870; Sophia, born August 9, 1872; and Friedrich D., born November 1, 1880, married Ellen CASSEL, of Montgomery county, and has one child Laura. The STEEB family, it will be seen, is largely represented in the United States, where is has recruited the ranks of our useful and loyal citizens.
