I am trying to find the parents of George Keefer, born 23 May 1815 in Ohio. His middle name is said to be Washington in some records. In others only the "W" is used.
I have posted in forums before looking for his family. I am NOT in need of census records for him, his wife and children.
At some point the story goes that his family moved to South Indiana. Also that he ran away at 15. No other information on his past is available, other than he could write his name and may have worked on a riverboat. Much of what we know of his story has been romanticized.
I am hoping that another Keefer/Kiefer/Kieffer genealogist may have him in their records. At least to the point of his leaving home.
