My name is Timothy E. Keltner and I was born in Kansas City Kansas. My father is Norman Dean and Grandfather was John Henry Keltner. My cousin has traced our family back to Carollton MO where the family name has changed over the years from Kelchenor to Keltener to, finally, Keltner. We have heard that three Kelchenor brothers stowed away in a boat from Germany in the 1800's. Also, in some research I did in the 80's, I learned that the name Keltner is an occupational name in Germany. A Keltner is a person that operates a wine press.
