I am having trouble finding this family in 1860. Ancestry.com has a very good "every name" index for this year, and I have searched by first name, age, soundex for Steffee & Stevens, everything I can think of. There are some matches, but they are split up among several households - if they are the correct people the family did not stay together for whatever reason. Closest matches I have found are:

Peter Steffey, age 56, Day Labour, b. PA, living in Freedom, Blair Co., PA in the household of Jno B Lingafelt
Margaret, age 50, Domestic, b. PA, living in Huntingdon, Luzerne Co. PA in the household of Jacob Fitzgeralds
Peter Steafe, age 24, farm labour, b. PA, living in Ephreta, Lancaster Co., PA in the household of Elias Zahn
Eliza, age 20 - ?
Nicholas P. Stevens, age 18, operative, b. PA, living in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA in household of John Lovall
Thomas Stephens, age 15, Student, b. PA, living in Green, Indiana Co., PA in the household of Philip Arther. Nearby is household of Alexander Stephens, age 51. (Indiana Co., PA is where Brush Valley Lutheran Cemetery is.)
Rebecca, age 12 - There is a Rebecca Stpehens, age 13, listed in the household of Henry & Margaret Stephens (Both age 50. Nicholas Stephens age 83 in same household) in Benton, Benton Co., Iowa. Rebecca listed after Henry's children, and he also has a son James who is age 13.
David age 10 - ?

For Rebecca & David I find children that age with right name, but in households with head last name Stephens (or variant spelling) that appears to be their father. For each name above I did a search for that person living in any state, born PA, and did a search for soundex for Stevens or Steffee for each age above plus the age before and after it.

Peter, b. ca. 1804: (The notes for this Peter would not come up on my computer.) I have no information as to when or where Peter died. Reportedly, in the Brush Valley Lutheran Cemetery, there is a stone for a Margaret, wife of Peter Steffe; died February 24, 1866. Age: 68 yrs., 2 mos., 20 days. Will mail info.
