Initial work on the Keeler/McVey family tree was begun by my mother, Ruth M Keeler (nee McVey) in the 1990's. she provided me (Elaine Keeler) with all the data (documents, handwritten notes and letters, and anecdotal information). I entered this into the computer and circluated it to immediate family members for corrections, updates and extension. At the present time I am exploring the census records of 1870 -1930 for New Jersey, New York and Mass. to research additional information on the Keeler, Murphy, and McVey families. Anyone who wishes to help provide additional information is welcome to comtact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Work on the Rheuban/David Family Tree was initiated to capture the information about my husband, Sid's, ancestors. As senior members of the Rheuban and David families became fewer and fewer, Sid and I wanted to collect whatever data we had. Most of this was from Sid's memories and discussions with other family members. We did visit several old cemeteries to corroborate our facts.
