Holy Trinity Church is the oldest church in America that has been continuously in use. (This is from a question on Jeopardy! so it has to be true.) John Hanson Steelman was one of the largest contributors to the construction of the church.
The first page of the Rev. Bjork's churchbook reads: "To the Church of Holy Trinity at Christina in Pensilvania, America, is this bound book given for a church book, by Mr. John Hance Stellman in the year 1699." Records of Holy Trinity Church, Wilmington, Delaware.
On June 24, 1699, John Hanson Steelman was assigned a pew in second row on the men's side at Holy Trinity Church in Wilmington Delaware. His wife was assigned pew in second row on women's side. Records of Holy Trinity Church.
