I do not find a Christian Keller born in Ger in Harris Co, TX 1920 census, but there is a Christ Keller about the right age and he was born in PA, with both parents born Germany.

1910 census Antis, Blair Co, PA:

Keller, Christian, hd, 46, sgl, b PA, Ger, Ger - Basket maker
Carlhime, John C., laborer, 41, sgl, b PA, Ger, Ger

1880 census Antis, Blair Co, PA:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Sickman KELLER Self M Male W 64 BADEN Basket Maker BADEN BADEN
Mary KELLER Wife M Female W 54 BADEN Keeping House BADEN BADEN
Mary KELLER Dau S Female W 23 PA BADEN BADEN
Christ KELLER Son S Male W 17 PA Farm Laborer BADEN BADEN
Philip KELLER Son S Male W 14 PA Farm Laborer BADEN BADEN
Albert KELLER Son S Male W 9 PA BADEN BADEN

Since dau Mary was 23, b PA, if this is your family, you should be able to find them on the 1870 and 1860 censuses, too.

By 1930 "Chris" is still in Harris Co, TX, widowed and owns his home. I haven't seen signs of children, but there should be probate and land records showing heirs for that property.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
