Email from descendant (2/16/04):
Hello Sandy, I have had a major breakthrough in the Steed (Stead) family. I found John Peter STEED and Alvaretta living in Denver in 1910. He was 53. Grace was living not too far away. I have narrowed his death down between 1910 and 1920 somewhere in Colorado. I will be able to do a more comprehensive search next year when I go back to Denver. I found him in Denver Precinct 6 Supplemental. It was through Heritage Quest. Hooray! I have also found out more about Frank Steed.
