Keeler Genealogy and Photo Album:
In 1888, Wilburn Alonzo KEELER of Brown Co TX gave a photo album to his mother in Sevier Co TN, Mary Ann Baker,the daughter of Samuel Baker and Margaret MCMEANS, and wife of John Duggan Keeler,son of Joseph Keeler and Catherine FOX.
This website has been created to display the album and will also include genealogy pages. The album is online now and ready for viewing.
It is believed most of these photos are of relatives who also migrated to Texas from Sevier Co, though some photos may be of family members who never left Tennessee, possibly added by Mary Ann or even by Wilburn, who regained possession of the album later. Only a few photos have been identified.
Wilburn's first wife was Nancy C. FOX, dau of Calvin Fox and Margaret SHRADER. His second wife was Margaret Jane Elizabeth DOCKERY.
The album is now owned by Wilburn and Nancy's great-granddaughter.
My own line is John Adam KEELER, also a son of Joseph Keeler and Catherine FOX. "Adam", as he was known, married Mary Ann Matilda Baker,dau of Martin Caswell Baker and Elizabeth WEBB. Adam's widow, Mary Ann Matilda Baker, migrated to Williamson Co TX in April of 1874 with her grown children, including my gg-grandfather, James Caswell Keeler, who married Eliza MCFARLIN.
Please contact me if you're related, or if you recognize any of the photos.
