The last year was spent putting together a KEEFE family and the following connecting names RAMSEY, COTTRELL, HENRY, JOSTEN or DEHNER names.No more. Done.
My James KEEFE was an "Alias" for John Milton GAULT.
I am descended from Sarah K HORNER GAULT ASHKRAFT/ASHCRAFT through her son, John Milton GAULT, that back in 1996, I was told was Jim/James KEEFE.
As of a ,8 February 2006, conversation with a wonderful new relative, we realized he was using an alias!!
As of 11 February, I now have copies (while another relative has the originals) of James Milton KEEFE's Social Security Card
Also a 1940 Oklahoma Driver's license, for Jim Milton KEEFE, with his residence of Pawhuska, Osage County, OK living at American Rooms.
Now in the process of obtaining an obituary for John/Jim.
Presently online: California Records has John/Jim with the same SSDI number (as on the copy SS card), dying in Sacramento, CA in 1951.
Also in my possession, copies of the original pictures of John/Jim; his sister, Emma; and John/Jim's son, James Vernon. (Thanks cousin!)
..........................Zanesville Signal newspaper for April 8, 1944. Then I found this:
