Baylis Steele

Baylis Steele was born December 4, 1862, in Henry County, Missouri.  He was reared on a farm, and received his education in the district schools and afterwards in the High School at Sedalia, where his parents moved.  He traveled for a book and stationary house after leaving school, but came to Kansas City in 1884, and engaged in the real estate business, in which he has ever since been continuously engaged. 

     Mr. Steele was elected to the Upper House in the spring election of 1902, and is making a splendid official record.

     He is a member of the Kansas City Club, and an Elk.

     Few men have more right to be proud of their ancestry than Mr. Steele.  His great grandmother was George Washington's sister, and his great grandfather, William Baylis, was a captain in the Revolutionary war, and was on General Washington's staff at Yorktown when Cornwallis surrendered.
