Steeples Ancestry

            The Steeples ancestry album is based upon the D.J. Steeples family from their farm west of Zurich, Kansas and the William Wallace Steeples family from Holton, Hill City, and Palco, Kansas.   Most of the pictures have an imbedded caption that identifies each of the persons shown.  Pictures without imbedded captions have captions below the respective pictures.  To enlarge any picture, click on it.  To return to the thumbnails, press the back button on your browser. 

            Mike Settles, one of many of D.J.'s great-grandsons, was responsible for editing a large number of these pictures, placing captions on each, and removing blemishes where possible.  He even placed a second arm on one of D.J. Steeples' pictures, as the arm in the actual picture was missing.  As we all know, D.J. had both arms, a valuable asset in raising a bunch of kids single-handed (?).  Thanks to Mike for his professional contribution.  Then with the assistance of Lois Steeples Settles, Jean Steeples Webb, and Joann Steeples Haslett, every effort was made to identify each of the individuals in order as they appear in the group pictures.
