      Information in the two paragraphs below were sourced from the book History of the Story Road and Vicinity by Lloyd Moose.

      "There were the Steffys; LaFayette, Joseph and John. LaFayette was the son of Isaac Steffy, the first, and Catherine Wolf. Joseph was the son of Isaac the first and —— Bowers. John was the son of Isaac the second, and Polly Litchard."

      "Eighty years ago or more Isaac Steffy and his wife, Polly Litchard, settled on the farm now owned by Edward Lawrence. The house stood across the road from the present house, and they lived here 55 years ago. He was the son of Isaac Steffy and Catharine Wolf, who came from Allentown, Pa., to Sparta, and settled before 1820. She was the daughter of John Litchard of Sparta. They had a family of three children, two sons and a daughter. John Steffy was a veteran of the Civil War. He married Emma Die, daughter of Sylvester Die and Polly Miner. Monroe Steffy married Viola Curtis, daughter of Cornelius Curtis and Bertha Pemberton. Delia Steffy married Beldin Crane. She is the only survivor of the family. Isaac Steffy sold the farm to Samuel Weidman, who sold it to his son, Fred. Fred built the house and barn and after some years Edward Lawrence and his wife, Hattie Steffy, daughter of John Steffy, purchased It, and so the farm went back to the Steffy family again. The fifth generation of the family now live in the town and are the children of Esma Lawrence and Dale Straight."
