Can anyone translate or get any info out of this document?
Jacob Keller was born in Germany on October 3, 1839. Immigrated to the US (on the Germanic on March 21, 1868) and settled in Callicoon Center, NY in 1868. He married Mary Wagner in 1870. He died in Callicoon Center, NY on February 13, 1924. Looks like he had eight children - Lavinia, Augusta, Olivia, Stephania, Oscar, Arthur, Wallace, and Albert.
I'm hoping that this military document may lead to me finding something, somewhere in the German records so I can find his parents and other ancestors from Germany.
