128 Henry William Harrington (his name has also been given as William Henry Harrington), of South Carolina, moved to Anson County, North Carolina, in 1776. He was a man of great wealth and is described as "a planter of immense estates and baronical style of living" ("Biographical History of North Carolina," Ashe, Volume IV; "History of Old Cheraw," Gregg).

He became Brigadier General of the Revolutionary forces. His home place, in Richmond County, was widely known as "Beausejour."

It is very probable that he gave Rosanna and Robert the "fine house" where they lived. It was known as "Montcalm". It was probably built about 1801. It was later known as the Leak Place.

William Henry Harrington died at his seat in Richmond County, in the 62nd year of his age. The newspaper notice stated that he was "an active and useful officer, and acquired honor in the Revolution" (Raleigh Register 13 April 1809).
His wife, Mrs. Rosanna Harrington, died at her residence in Wadesboro on the 13th of October 1828 (Raleigh NC Star 30 Oct 1828 notice).

134 I have been contacted at times by people wanting to know if a Charles Clayton of this area was a son of John Benoni Clayton and Elizabeth Benbow. They reason that the first name of Charles may be a reflection of Elizabeth's father's name. I have an open mind about this, but I have not seen anything in the Quaker records or other records to indicate that there is a relationship between Charles Clayton and John Benoni Clayton and his wife Elizabeth Benbow. Family: F8
 
135 I'm not yet able to find this family in the 1860 census.

In the 1870 federal census of Indian Village Township, Tama County, Iowa:

136 In 1891, he is living in Pontypridd, Glamorganshire, and working at a colliery. His brother Ephraim is living with him, and also working at the colliery. William's wife's age appears to be 46, whereas his age is 33. Is that correct or an error? Family: F2128
 
137 In 1922, Flake Steele moved to Winston-Salem to manage the Pine Hall Brick and Pipe Company, while the three other brothers continued to guide the Steele organization. During the period between 1926 and 1932, J.C. Steele & Sons became recognized as one of the four or five most important United States manufacturers of clay working machinery. For the most part, Steele equipment was considered simpler, cheaper and less sophisticated than that which was being manufactured by its competitors. The company also began to do business with brick manufacturers in Canada and Mexico.

With the depression lifting and the country preparing for war in the years 1932 through 1946, the company was doing well but its leadership was aging. The three brothers were joined by J.C. Steele Jr. (son of Henry Oscar Steele) in 1935 and by Preston Steele Jr. in 1936.

However, the war years brought many changes to the Steele organization. Both J.C. Steele Jr. and Preston were called to active duty and, with the deaths of Clarence and Henry Steele, only Alexis Steele remained. He headed the business throughout the war years and remained at its head, at least nominally, until his death in 1959.

After the war, both J.C. Steele Jr. and Preston returned to the company and were soon joined by cousins Clarence N. Steele and Montgomery Steele. The business was incorporated in 1946 and all five Steeles were made officers of the corporation and comprised the management group.
