STEELE --- Mrs. Harriet T. STEELE
Lincoln County Farmer, Feb. 12, 1892
---Harriet Tallman Steele was born Nov. 1, 1836, in Scipio, Cayuga Co., N.Y. She married Henry Steele on May 8, 1856. They moved to Kansas in 1871 and settled at Vesper. Here she took an interest in every good work. The church, the Sabbath school, the day school. She was a member of no church on earth, but was a sincere christian. She made her house always appear like a loving, neat, happy home. Her great ambition was to train her son to be a useful man. How she succeeded you all know. He has been the teacher of the youth of this community, and has served his master well.
On Monday, Feb. 1, her son Charley wanted her not to work, as she was too weak and sick to do the work; but she thought she could keep up, so he went to his school, and Mr. Steele went out to do the chores at the barn. He soon heard some one drawing water at the well and thought little of it, but coming in in half an hour afterward he could not find his wife in the house. At last he saw some of her dress floating in the well. You know the rest.
The great, long funeral procession took its way to Monroe cemetery. Before the coffin was lowered it was covered with flowers by the sisters of the Relief Corps, of which Mrs. Steele was once president.
