STEELE, M.D. - Just before going to press we learn of the death of Dr. M.D. Steele which occurred Wednesday night at his home at Elm Springs. He had been sick for some time and his death was not entirely unexpected. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock. M.D. Steele was born in Bedford County, Tenn. in the year 1824. He began the study of medicine when 19 years of age and in 1847 moved to Lawrence County, Ark. and began the practice of his profession. In 1849 he was married to Miss Francis S. Poer and two children were the fruits of this union. In 1856 Dr. Steele moved to Benton County but remained only a short time when he moved to Elm Springs where he has continued to reside. He lost his wife in 1860 and one year later was married to Mrs. Mary E. Deaver and they were the parents of nine children, seven of whom are living. Dr. Steele was a member of the South Methodist Church and was one of the best and most highly esteemed citizens in Washington County. The News tenders sympathy to the sorrowing family.
