Notes for Rosanna Trites
She was said to be sixteen when she married Robert Cummings in 176989, but the original list of settlers from 1766 listed children by age and she would therefore appear to be older than her brothers and so probably 18 when she met Robert Cummings.
She had one child, Elizabeth, with Robert Cummings before he left for Baltimore.
She had eight children with her second husband, Christian Steeves:
Ann STEEVES ( - 1838)
Christian STEEVES (2) ( - 1829)
Jacob STEEVES (2) ( - 1832) ; 2 grandchildren
Job STEEVES ( - 1840)
Susanna STEEVES ( - )
Henry STEEVES (2) (1779 - )
Rachel STEEVES (1780 - )
Mary STEEVES (1782 - ) ; 2 grandchildren

She lived with her husband Christian Stieff on the most easterly 532 acres of her father Jacob Treitz’s land grant, which included the location where the settlers probably spent their first winter and which was beginning to be viewed as prime real estate by the late 18th century.90
