You mentioned the children of Mathias Keely and Hannah Thomas:

Esther - (born 9-26-1781 – married Charles Petit Heath)
Samuel - (born10-9-1783)
Elizabeth – (born 10-4-1785, and apparently died in infancy)
Morton-Brealsford – (born 10-18-1787, died at 16) (Note that Mathias’ shipping company partner was a Mr. Brailsford)
Francis – (born 1791) (does baptismal record have more info ?)

All of whom were recorded as baptized at the 1st Reformed Church of Philadelphia.

Apparently one LDS Pedigree CD-ROM (#39) also attributes to this couple the children:
William, Horatio-Nelson, Hannah and Maria.

If all were true, then we’d have a total family of 5 boys & 4 girls. The Matthias Keeley in the 1800 Philadelphia Census has 7 children (4 boys and 3 girls), which would make sense if one of the boys had died or already struck out on his own. (A Matthias Keeley is also in the 1790 Philadelphia Census, but its few details don’t really shed any light on the matter).

Is there any other information out there to flesh out the offspring here ?
