Re: Keefer/Keifer/Kiefers in Dayton, 1850

In Reply to: Keefer/Keifer/Kiefers in Dayton, 1850 by Jim Keffer of 1108

The 1850 census on lists them under Kiefer, not Keefer, and clearly shows the second name as C.C. on both the original and in their index.... also says that Jacob A. was a confectioner.... I'm a little interested in the Engle and Kneisley connections you mentioned....

I looked at some city directories and did not find Fred C. Kiefer..... and I checked Keefer, Kiefer, and Keifer....

The 1860 Census for Dayton, Ward 3, lists Ephraim and Martha living in the boarding house of Harriet Simpson... he's 26y, a postal clerk, she's 24y?, shows a child, Edward, age 2y (this is under Keifer in the index)

Couldn't find the others in the census... if some hadn't married after 1850 I woulda thought cholera got them in 1854....

1864-65 Dayton directory lists Chas. C. Kiefer, home 413 Second st, a grocer

in 1856-57 it shows Mrs. Elizabeth Kiefer, Jefferson bet First and Second and at same address, E.D. (Ephraim?), clerk in post office; Jacob, candy maker, living on Third street bet Ludlow and Wilkinson; and J.L., clerk in post office, living at Jefferson bet First and Second

appears that there are two Jacobs, father and son, and both were confectioners?

in 1873 Chas. C. Kiefer is living at 137 S. Main and so is John D. Kiefer, clerk....

my 3g-grandmother was Minerva Anna Keever/Kiefer who died in Greene Co, Ohio about 1877 was married in Clark Co, Ohio in 1827 to Emmanuel Replogle.... have never been able to identify her parents.....

i see that Charles C., John D., and a couple others are buried together at Woodland cemetery under the Keifer spelling? also another Charles C. listed as Kiefer... one died in 1913 in New York it says... will have to see if they are the Kiefer's buried near my 2g-grand-uncle Van Tuyl.....
