He came to America in 1837, and appeared at Dyersville around 1847, though his brother Michael settled first at Holy Cross and came to this territory some years later. Paul married a Miss Schuster to whom two sons, Mike and Matt, were born. Then Mrs. Steger died. Margaret Nachtmann became the second wife of Paul Steger. She was born of John and Teresa Tauer Nachtmann in Austrian Bavaria, on November 9, 1840, and came to Dyersville with her parents in 1855. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Paul Steger and two step-sons lived on a farm near Dubuque until 1864.
