Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 757, Tippecanoe Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.
"JOHN KELLER was born in Seneca County, Ohio, March 2, 1842, and is one of eleven children born to MARTIN and MAGDALENA (BECKER) KELLER. The parents came to this township when JOHN was but three years old, and here they have ever since resided. JOHN lived on his father's farm until 1872, when he moved upon his present place, one mile and a half west of Monterey and one-half mile east of the old homestead. He was married, September 26, 1872, to ELIZABETH SCHNIDER, who has borne him five children - HENRY, JOSEPH, JOHN, CHARLIE, and MARY. MR. KELLER's farm comprises 160 acres of fertile land, on which he has erected a fine dwelling and comfortable outbuildings. He raises a variety of crops, and does general stock-raising. He is a respected member of the Catholic Church, and is an industrious and thrifty farmer."
