I am looking for a death date for my grandfather's grandfather Keller Bates.Keller was born to Barna (Benny) Bates & Martha Ann McWilliams 9 July 1857 in Senaca Township, Noble County Ohio.Keller and his family moved between OH, IL, KS, & OK.The last known location of Keller is shown in the 1830 census as Grant County OK.
He married Mollie Barnes 12 Oct 1877 in Senaca, Noble County Ohio.Mollie died in appx 1858.
Together they had at least 9 children. (F) Angie Belle - b. 1878 in Ohio (F) Martha A - b. 3 Nov 1878 in Ohio (M) Aaron W- b. Mar 1880 in Kansas (F) Etta Florence - b. Nov 1881 in Illinois (F) Blanche Mae - b. Oct 1883 in Illinois (F) Mella - b. 1886 - unknown (M) Kelley Monroe - b. 19 Aug 1887 in Attica, Harper County, Kansas d. 21 Jun 1974 -married Etta Missy Burkholder b. 15 May 1893 in Minneapolis, Ottawa, Kansas d. 3 Oct 1878 in Salina, Kansas -children:Kenneth Elmer b 7 Sept 1910 d. 22 Mar 1977 Reno, Nevada Helen Mae b 28 Oct 1912 d 26 Dec 1968 Lewis Elsworth b 7 Aug 1915 d 6 Jan 1991 Betty Alice b 1 Apr 1923 (F) Louella - b. Nov 1891 in Kansas (M) Ernest Roy - b. Jul 1893 - unknown
I also found a marriage record for Keller to his brother's (Aaron V. BATES) widow Francina SHAFER on 15 Dec 1900 in Seneca Township, Noble County, Ohio.I do not believe that Francina ever moved to OK, her death records shows her as widow of Aaron at the age of 90 in OH.Keller listed his residence as OK on the license application at the time of their marriage.
I have found Keller in the following census records. 1870 Seneca, Noble County Ohio 1880 Greenwood, Christian, Illinois 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 Grant County, Oklahoma
But I have not yet found a date of death or place of death.
