Steele, Robert A
Steele, Robert A., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was born about 1804. He was converted in early life, and practiced medicine for several years. In 1883 he was admitted on trial in the Georgia Conference, and appointed as junior preacher to Alcovia Circuit. For eleven years he continued his itinerant career, serving the Church as a preacher, and for several years as presiding elder. He died in February, 1844. He was a man of great worth to the Church, of strong faith and good preaching talents, and perhaps few men ever possessed more true missionary zeal than he did.
