Father Ferdinand Steinmeyer served as a Jesuit priest at St. Joseph and St. Mary parishes in Philadelphia before and during the American Revolution. He risked his life entering New York, where being a priest was a hangable offense prior to the Revolution, and he did so often under the guise of a farmer.
