Descendant Report for
Joseph KEITHLEY


The file below represents the work of Karen Isaacson (KEI). She did the vast majority of the research, (with a lot of help from Floyd Strader) and carefully provided the source for nearly every piece of information. This work was inspired by the book by Mary Iantha Castlio (MIC). In census data, v= volume, ed= enumeration district, p= page, l= line. YOB, year of birth. IGI, International Genealogical Index, a huge file of contributed genealogy data maintained by the Mormons -- often incorrect, but sometimes correct. I think it's important that this information be "out" and available, so I am putting it here on the Web. Please give credit to Karen if this is useful to you. Floyd Strader was a major source for this file.
