Found the following during a very brief stop at the Union Co., IL, Courthouse at Jonesboro, IL, yesterday on a long trip home.A big thank you to the people at the courthouse who were very helpful and nice.
William R. Keltner married Miss Minnie M. Hartline on 5 Mar 1902, at Mt. Glenn (near Cobden), IL.He was 18 and she was 19.William R's parents were listed as J. J.(should be J. C.) Keltner and Julia Hawkins.Therefore, Robert F. Keltner and Margaret McCauslin were the grandparents.Parents of Minnie were listed as Thomas Hartline and Mary McIntire.
Also found birth certficates for two of their four children.A female, no given name listed, born 16 Jan 1903, and listed as the first child born to Minnie.And a male, no given name listed, born 5 Sep 1908, and listed as the fourth child born to Minnie.This would be Evart/Everett.If there were birth certificates for the other two children, the Keltner name was mispelled.
There were no Keltner deaths listed unless the name was mispelled.
Hope this settles Evart/Everetts Keltner's lineage.
