The Descendant of Albert Keppels

From the Netherlands to Clay Co, NE

All I know of my Great Grandfather, Albert Keppels, comes from some family history and a few documents and census records.  I believe he was married to Georgianne Keppels as that was the name given of  Dina Keppels mother on her marriage record found in Cambridge, NE.   I know that they came from the Netherlands as a family after Gerogianne's death, in 1874.  They spent about a year in Cleveland, Ohio before moving on to Clay County, Nebraska.  I believe Albert died just before 1885 as he is not listed in the 1885 Nebraska State Census, and his two youngest children, Dina and Gerritt are living with their sister's families.  
The reasearch on these families has been quite awakening a surprising at times.  Like every other family there are the good, the bad, and the mysterious times.
I have met two wonderful cousins who have helped me tremendously with the descendants.  
Linda Beigh: descendant of Josephine Keppels Biescke
Deb Stevens: descendant of Jenny Keppels Belders
