Thanks to some great help from a few of you I was able to track my husband's father and his line several generations back. Unfortunately I am now stuck and am so frustrated b/c I feel I am so close to being able to determine the true origin of our Keltner name!(German vs. Scottish) I have tracked info down the line and ended up with the 1880 Illinois census which shows my husband's ggg-grandfather - Henry Keltner. He was born 1818 in Ohio but in 1880 was living in Illinois. He married Catherine Eisenbise (but I have found it spelled as Catharin in the census records which I believe is more accurate). The census states that the birthplace(s) of Henry Keltner's mother AND father is PA. If anyone has any info as to Henry Keltner's parents' names, what area of PA they may have been from and/or where they or previous generations descended from I would be very grateful! Or if anyone has any suggestions as to where and how to continue my research I would really appreciate it! I also am willing to share any info I have traced back through thus far - if anyone would like this info just email me.
