- 1. rare web site update 
- There hasn't been a significant update to the Keever web site for quite a
while. I just finished adding a new line, Joseph Keever/Cynthia Garrett,
submitted by Deb Blume, and approximately 100 additional descendants of
Sally Keever/Orin Briggs, submitted by Eugene J. Martin.
Even though there hasn't been a lot of activity lately, keeping the data out
there does pay off now and then.
Once again, thanks to all of you for your assistance. I'll do another
update when circumstances justify it.
- 2. SSDI Index Great Article 
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
I thought I'd send this off to the Keever group as many of us use the Social
Security Death Index (SSDI.) After reading this article I found that I have
made these mistakes when doing a search and thought maybe there might be
others in the same boat. Take care and to all those women out there Happy

- Hi Deb
I have a Lydia Keever born abt 1843 I think Ohio married James Buchanan Via in
Preble Co. Ohio 23 Oct 1879. This is all the Keever I have so far.
I don't get a lot of e-mails on this line but every once in awhile someone
sends out information.
Is anyone else looking for Keevers in Ohio?

While I'm posting this message, I'll put in my query:
Does anyone know who the father of Joseph Keever, born Jefferson Co., Ohio,
in 1817 might be? He is my great-great-grandfather and later farmed in
Morgan Co., Center Twp., Ohio, where he and his wife Cynthia Garrett raised
their children. His surviving children were: Sarah (possibly), Leander,

recently noticed in HERITAGE BOOK NEWS, June 2001, issue 211, page 5:

- 10. KEEVER at IGI...all countries 
If you enter KEEVER as the surname and select 'all countries' and then hit
the SEARCH button....these are the results that are produced. It is
interesting how few Keevers there are in Germany...and how many there are in
England in the earlier periods. I have been told on several occasions that
Keever was not a German name (though they didn't tell me what other
nationality they might be). I am beginning to wonder if they might not have
been of Huguenot origin ...the Huguenots dispersed to many
- 11. German Keever 
- According to an accounting of Martin H. Keever printed in the Ohio Gena
Soc. Report Vol XI no. 1 p. 76 contributed by Mrs Geor.K. Reaske. Martin
Keever brother of Michael Keever was of German descent and spoke very
broken English. He may have been able to read and write because his powder
horn and hunting knife and his initials carved in to them. The two brothers
married Christena Schwister and Susan Shuester who married a Brandenburg
before she married Michael. All very german names. Talma Klaassen

- Thanks Vickie......your input certainly broadens the discussion. I've been
told by several folks that Keever isn't a German surname. My mother's Papa
Keever (maternal grandfather) spoke German and her daddy told her that her
mother's people were Pennsylvania Dutch.

and "Germany" . When the results page came up, I realized that I had already
done this exercise a long time ago. There were 11 hits.....one of which is a
website for a lady in Guam. The IGI says that my Henry KEEVER was born abt
1760 in Hessen-Nassau, Preussen. The other 8 KEEVERs are listed as being

- 18. Re: KEEVER at IGI...all countries 
- If you search on familysearch.org and substitute Kaeufer for Keever you'll get a
different outcome. Keever could be Keefer, Kiefer, Keiffer, Kefer, Kiever,
Keffer, Kever, Kifer, Kiver, Kaufer, Keiffer, Kaefer, Cafer, Caifer. All
variations I've seen. For now I believe that Keever is German--the name now
Americanized. I've been through this with my father's family, also German.
Remember, when our ancestors arrived in America they couldn't all spell their
names, let alone spell in English.

- I have just completed what will be my last update to the database. It
isn't a burden, but it does take away from other things where I'd rather be
spending my time. I'll post a notice on the web site that it is no longer
being updated, but will remain available for the benefit of other
researchers. I also submitted these updates to the RootsWeb WorldConnect
(Ancestry.com) databse, they should be posted by this time tomorrow.

- Does anyone know of a Keever that fought in the Rev. War? I found in
the Rev. Pensions that James Keever received, or applied fo, a pension.
It seems to me I have known or read of a tomb stone in Warren Co. Ohio
where a Keever had some Rev. War info. Maybe it was Civil War???
Has anyone entered the DAR through the Keever family? I know that it
can be done through the Replogle family. Tina Replogle married Mose Keever.

- 25. web site update 
- The Keever web site has been updated again. There are about 60 new
individuals, mostly from the line of Henry Keever (1755-1831), and
mostly from North Carolina. This information has been provided by
George Rogers, a fourth great grandson of this Henry. Mr. Rogers
provided a lot more information than you will see now, I will continue
working on it and will eventually get all of it on the web site.
