"Descendants and or ancestry for George (DOB 1800 - Saxony) and Barbara Keller (DOB 1802-Saxony). Their son Amelius or Emilius and (DIL)Magdalena married 1850. Arrived in Milwaukee approximately 1850. Children of this union were Charles, George and Oscar. George and Amelius were cabinet makers. Charles became an artist, George a Bank Teller and Oscar a painter. George is known to have a wife Louisa and children named Alice, George W and Walter and remained in Milwaukee. ..."
This Keller family is well-represented in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). There are multiple entries for the names Georg, Magdalena, Amelius, Barbara, etc. Besides the typical clippings there were notices for Amalius Keller and Magdalena Marschall's marriage (1849), followed by notices published by Amelius (1850) warning the public about Magdalena and his credit! (I think they patched it up, there are death notices for Magdalena about 30 years later). There are about 400 Keller notices in the current data file.
