Have some answers after my last message regarding Alvin Keech, and more questions.

Alvin Welty Keech was the son of William L. Keech who was born about 1825 in Pennsylvania. William L. Keech was a Justice of the Peace, also listed in 1860's as a Lawyer. I have no idea who Alvin's mother was, but could she have had surname Welty?

In 1860 William L. Keech is with a woman/his wife named Ellen born about 1832:

1860 United States Federal Census
Name: Elvin Kuch
Age in 1860: 6
Birth Year: abt 1854
Birthplace: Pennsylvania
Home in 1860: Windsor, York, Pennsylvania
Gender: Female (not correct, gender was male)
Post Office: Wrightsville

Household Members: Name Age
William Kuch 30 born PA
Ellen Kuch 28 born PA
Elvin Kuch 6 born PA
Ida Kuch 1 born PA

In 1870 William Keech's wife's name is Mary E. and she was born about 1840- are these two different women then? The woman in 1870 census would have only been 14 when Alvin was born. Alvin was mis-transcribed on the 1870 census as "Alice W. Keech". I have no idea who Susan Welty was, or how related, but if Alvin's mother was a Welty, Susan could have been a younger sister.

1870 United States Federal Census
Name: Ida L Keech
Age in 1870: 11
Birth Year: abt 1859
Birthplace: Pennsylvania
Home in 1870: York Ward 4, York, Pennsylvania
Race: White
Gender: Female
Post Office: York
Value of real estate: View image
Household Members: Name Age
William L Keech 45 born PA, Clerk of Courts
Mary E Keech 30
Alice W Keech 16 (this is Alvin W., male)
Ida L Keech 11
Morris L Keech 9
Mary E Keech 5
Susan F Welty 19 (born about 1851)

William L. Keech was a son of David Hayes Keech 1800-1858 and Magdalene Patton. David Hayes Keech was a son of Nathaniel Keech 1771-1841 and Mary Hayes 1764-1831.

Does anyone have more info to add here?

Thanks from Nora
