Alfred Steele

The East Liverpool Tribune

Alfred Steele, a well known East Liverpool potter, died Monday night (Feb. 19, 1906) at the home of his son, the Rev. Alexander Steele, at Harmony, Pa., where he had been visiting for the past few weeks. Death was due to an acute attack of asthma with which he had been a sufferer for a number of years.

The remains were brought to this city on the afternoon train and taken to the home of the deceased's son-in-law, A. E. Bertele, 196 Sixth street. The funeral arrangements had not been completed last night.

Mr. Steele was 65 years old. He was a native of Fenton, England, and came to this country after his marriage. He had a wide acquaintance her and in Trenton where he formerly resided. He was a member of the Methodist Protestant church and a man of many excellent traits of character. He was a dishmaker by trade and was last employed at the Dresden pottery. His wife died here six years ago.

Four children survive as follows: The Rev. Albert Steele, of New Haven, Conn.;

The Rev. Alexander Steele, of Harmony, Pa.; Miss Maud Steele, a student at Yale university, and Mrs. A. E. Bertele, of this city.

It is likely that the funeral services will be held at the Methodist Protestant church today or tomorrow, the Rev. David Jones officiating. Interment will be made in Riverview cemetery.
