I have some found some new info on John Keeland and his wife Emaline Williams of Carroll Co., AR. It is said that John Keeland left his family sometime in the 1850s to join the gold rush in California. Upon he returning he found his wife had remarried. Indeed, Emaline did remarry. She is listed as Emaline Hobbs in the 1860 census for Reynolds Co., MO, in the 1870 census for Sharp Co., AR and 1880 census for Carroll Co., AR. Age, place of birth and succession of children correspond. John Keeland may have remarried, too. I may have found him in the 1880 census for Boone Co., AR married to Elizabeth Blevins. Age and state of birth match. Anybody who is interested or has other/more info on this family please contact me.
