Keeler, Charles D., Vergennes, was born in Kent, Litchfield county, Conn., in 1810. He became an apprentice in the tanning business in 1826, and in 1831 he embarked in the manufacture of boots and shoes, and also in the tanning business, which he has continued until the present time. He was married in 1837 to Lovina Williams, who died in 1841, leaving four children, all of whom have since died. Charles D. Keeler then married his second wife, Sophia Gay, in 1851. She died leaving three children, only one of whom is now living -- Mary (who married John W. Ross, of Rutland, Vt.). Charles D. then married his third wife, Elizabeth A. Painter, of Vergennes, Vt. They have had one daughter born to them -- Ruth C., who is now the wife of Franklin A. Goss, of Vergennes, Vt. Charles D. was the only child of David and Ruth (Berry) Keeler, who moved to Vermont from Kent, Conn.. in 1810. He engaged in the tanning business in Ferrisburgh. The following year he returned to Connecticut to settle his business there, and while there was taken sick and died. His widow afterward married Russell Rogers, esq., of Vergennes. Five children were born to them, two of whom now survive.
