Steele, David, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born about 1791. When about eighteen years of age he joined the Church, and in 1820, was admitted on trial into the Baltimore Conference. From that time he labored with great acceptance and success until 1847, when he took a supernumerary relation. This relation was changed to superannuated in 1849, and was continued until his death, at Washington, D. C., May 4, 1852. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1853, p. 313.
