Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Levi and Elizabeth Keller had a daughter Elizabeth born in Ohio about 1848. In the 1870 U.S. Census, her occupation was defined as "Keeping mother." This likely referred to her 92 year-old grandmother, Mary (Rasor) Shafer, who was staying with the family in 1870. [census-us-1870-ps-oh-noble-seneca-12]

There exists a gravestone for Levi Keller (1795-1889), Elizabeth his wife (1800-1887), Elizabeth wife of George Bauch (1835-1904) in the Mount Ephraim Cemetery in Mount Ephraim, Noble County, Ohio.
