Betsey Kellar, daughter of Wm Kellar married Abraham Kellar. William Kellar gave his consent. Certificate issued Aug 1808, returned 13 Aug 1808 by Rev. William Kellar who performed the ceremony. The only Abraham Kellar available would seem to be Isaac's son Abraham. He married Leah Abraham Spears but he certainly could have had an earlier marriage to this Betsey.
Elizabeth "Betsey" KELLAR and Abraham KELLAR were married on 13 August 1808 in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Abraham KELLAR, son of Isaac KELLAR and Elizabeth KUYKENDALL, was born on 24 January 1782 in Jefferson County, Kentucky.3 He died on 11 November 1849 at the age of 67 in Jefferson County, Kentucky.
1796. Moses Kuykendall had paid tax for 200 acres on Fern Creek, Jefferson Co, for the heirs of Isaac Keller.
There is an 1808 deed from Abraham & Moses Keller to Daniel Sparks, filed Bullitt Co KY. Mentions the land was part of a 1500 acre survey to Isaac Keller.
Abraham married in 1808 to his first cousin, Elizabeth "Betsey" Kellar. She died in September of 1834. He is also said to have married widowed Leah Kellar Spears who died in 1842 and was also a first cousin. Leah must have been the 2nd marriage. I believe all the children were Betsey's.
3 Sept 1835. Abraham Keller attempted to receive bounty land from the state of Virginia on the service record of Isaac Kellar. It was necessary to serve three years continuously in the State or Continental Line. Milita service did not count. The Claim was Rejected. William Tyler made an affidavit on 15 Dec 1834 - he was then age 80 - and stated that he had served at the Falls of the Ohio in the Spring of 1778 and fall of 1779 with Isaac Kellar, who was then serving as a Sergeant in Clarks Illinois Regiment. Tyler understood that Isaac Kellar had never received lands due him. The document is very difficult to read.
Testimony by this Abraham on behalf of heirs of his uncle Abraham Kellar. Half pay awarded to Wm. H. Todd of Arkansas.
Although some of the above pension file appears to be missing, a letter from the Commissioner to John W. Keller of New York, 6 Feb 1909, states that the application for half pay was made by the soldier's nephew Abraham Keller, in Jefferson Co, KY on 12 May 1846 when he was 64 years old. Perhaps Todd was his attorney. A letter from Wm. H. Todd to the Commissioner of Pensions, 5 Nov 1845, states he has discovered that Capt Abraham Keller was killed by the Indians prior to the time the evidence showed and the claim was for more money than was actually due his representatives. He will refund the money overpaid when the precise time of his death can be established.
Abraham is said to be buried in the Abraham Kellar Cemetery along with several of his children.
Elizabeth "Betsey" KELLAR and Abraham KELLAR had the following children:
