Tinicum Twp, Bucks, PA He was reared on a farm until 18 years of
age. He then went into farming in Bedminister township, and served as
constable for four years. In 1861 he engaged in the mercantile
business in Tinicum township, and carried it on for five years, when
he sold out. In 1866 he came to PLumstead township, and bought
the farm which he now owns. He was engaged quite extensively in the
commission business about seven years. He owns several good
properties in Danborough. In 1874 he was elected county
commissioner for one year, was re-elected, and served three years. He
was of the commissioners at the time of the erection of the new court
house, which is creditable to the commissioners then serving. Mr. and
Mrs. Keller are members of the Lutheran church. He is very poplar and
influential citizen of the county. “History of Bucks County”
