senator 1879 80 and was chief of police at Toledo and editor of the Weekly Ohio Democrat He died in Toledo on 18 October 1883 A monument was erected to his memory at Toledo May 26 1887 An article included in Howe s Historical Collections of Ohio Vol 2 pp 159 160 gives his middle name incorrectly as Barrett Information concerning him is contained in Egle s Pennsylvania Genealogies Pennsylvania Notes and Queries Vol 1 4th Series Dictionary of National Biography and in Joseph Earle Steadman s Barton Steadman family genealogy from which much of this article is adapted Gen Steedman was married three times In 1838 he married Sarah Miranda Stiles 1819 31 Jan 1872 at Defiance OH She was born in New Jersey and died in Toledo His second wife was Rosie Barr The third wife whom he married on 16 Sept 1878 was Margaret Gildea of Toledo There are 4 known children From William Henry Egle Notes and Queries Historical and Genealogical Chiefly Relating to Interior of Pennsylvania Series 4 Volume I 1893 pp 10 12 A WEST BRANCH PRINTER BOY General James B Steedman 1818 1883 James Blair Steedman Major General U S V died in Toledo Lucas Co Ohio October 18 1883 aged sixty five years He was born in Chillisquaque township Northumberland county Pa at the old Steedman home immediately opposite Lewisburg on the bank of the West Branch of the Susquehanna His grandfather William Steedman married Rebecca daughter of Col William Cooke Hist Register Vol 1 page 178 of the noted 12th Pennsylvania Regiment of the Continental line and his father George Steedman married Sarah Blair When James was about fourteen years old death entered the family and his father and mother were buried on the same day His olny sister Sarah married Hon George R Barrett now of Clearfield Pa THe Judge was then editing a Democratic paper at lewisburg and James became an apprentice in the office After working two years at printing he became boss of a gang of laborers on the canal and gave early evidence of his unflinching courage and athletic force by whipping the best man on the job a burly Irishman who when Steedman ordered him to drop his spade and leave the ditch avowed his intention to whopp the big head off the striplin When about twenty years old the young printer moved to Napoleon Henry county Ohio and become proprietor of the North Western Democrat In October 1841 he was elected a member of the Ohio General Assembly and re elected in 1842 He was always engaged in contracting on the Wabash and Erie canal and subsequently on the Wabash railroad About this time occurred the next great trial of his physical strength A blacksmith who had long been held as the best man of Northwest Ohio hearing of Steedman s pugilistic reputation accosted him They tell me you were the best man in Pennsylvania I am the best man in Ohio You can t stay in Ohio unless you can lick me They fought three hours Steedman had three ribs and a finger broken but came off victor and the blacksmith never fought again In October 1851 Steedman was elected on the Democratic ticket a member of the Board of Publick Works of Ohio by a majority over his Whig opponent of nearly 24 000 His courage united with sagacity and great knowledge of human nature made him a leader and he became a political power in his adopted State In 1857 his political fortunes were transferred to Washington city by his selection for the office of Public Printer He was a delegate to the Democratic convention which met in Charleston S C April 23 1860 and while there made himself conspicuous for abilty and zeal in advocating the claims of Stephen A Douglass and the unbending firmness with which he stood up for the Little Giant He was at home in a fight he stood no fear of no mortal man or any number of them and when Jim Steedman stepped into the arena Yancey and his fire eaters stopped bullying while he was about In the same year 1860 Steedman was a candidate for Congess but was defeated by Hon James M Ashley of Toledo In 1861 Steedman had removed to Toledo and when Governor Dennison issued his call for volunteers Steedman promptly telegraphed the Governor an offer of an entire regiment Three days after he was appointed colonel he had the regiment ready for the field For his own history and that of his renowned regiment the Fourteenth Ohio the reader may consult Whitelaw Reid s Ohio in the War Reid says Scarcely any Ohio General not in command of a large army rendered more valuable or distinguished service He never belonged to the school of delaying Generals He was a bold energetic gighter and his voice was always for battle His troops had unbounded confidence in and admiration for him It was a Chickamauga that Gen Steedman won his stars His cool self possession is well brought out by an anecdote related by a correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette As Steedman rode into battle he passed General Gordon Granger The latter said feelingly Steed old boy it is going to be hot in there If anything should happen have you any requests to make of me Yes General Granger if I fall int he fight please see my body decently buried and my name correctly spelled in the newspapers and he deliberately spelled it The same correspondent gives General Steedman s own account of the part he took in the battle it is worthy of presentation in our historical annals His determination to take responsibility and his unflinching bravery recalls the heroism of
