This is a photograph of the interior of the Steelman Chapel formerly located on Steelman Road in Gibson County, Indiana. This photograph was taken by Howard Field in 1968. The Chapel was build in 1883 by the Steelman and Knaub families as a school. It was demolished in 1999. It was the location of the double wedding of George E. Field to Sarah Jane Knaub and John Wesley Steelman, Jr., to Caroline Adelia Knaub on 15 Sep 1875. The women were sisters. At only 14, Caroline had been the first teacher to teach the Steelman and Knaub children. Several Field children also attended school in the building. Both Sarah and Caroline had babies in 1776 and both babies died very young. Sarah also died a day after her baby was born. George Field married Lavica Hinkle sometime later.
