Otto R. Steiner, b. Oct. 21, 1883, d. May 6, 1920.In 1916, the following article was republished in the local newspaper. I am wondering if this branch of the Steiners might have been related to Otto Steiner:

Needle in Baby's Knee~~The year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. E.P. Steiner was taken to Ann Arbor, yesterday, and will later undergo an operation for the removal of a needle from his knee.

About two months ago, while Mrs. Steiner was visiting her mother in Fowlerville, the little lad was crawling about the floor and later a piece of a needle was found in his rompers and a slight scratch on his knee. At the time it was considered probably that the other piece of the needle was embodied in the flesh, but the child did not seem to be in pain and the matter was dismissed as trivial. During the past week, however, the limb became swollen, the least pressure causing the child pain, and a local doctor advised consulting the hospital experts in Ann Arbor.

A radiograph was made of the child's limb, yesterday, and the missing needle was located, but on account of infection and inflammation, the operation will be delayed until the swelling can be reduced and the child prepared for the ordeal.~~Chelsea Tribune
