the home of the Walter Ellis and the Adam and Ulrich Keener family files
and their related Families.
There is a Guestbook for the Site.
It can be found at the bottom of this page.
From month to month many updates, corrections and additions
are made to this database. There is no way to completely redo
both sites on a regular basic. Please use the data at World Connect
to check for your family data.
Major changes to the Keener lines
have been made again.
Evaluation of the data received over 10 years show some
important updates. These may be found at World Connect
The major changes for June 10,
2005 come from Wanda Gunnet and while they refer to
Adam's family, our Ulrich's information is impacted.
Adam and Barbra Siegret were
married in Nov. of 1721. He is listed as the son of
Hanns Kuhner. deceased, and his wife Catherina, living. The first 2 children were
born in France and baptized at the same church as the wedding.
While we still have no proof
of exactly relationships of those who immigrated, we
do know Adam's parents and probably Ulrich 's when we verify that they are brothers.
Our research points to this. Hans is still a mystery.
On the Ship James Goodwell of
27 Sept 1727 were 9 people in this group. Of the 6 not listed by name
are Adam's wife, Barbra, 2 minor children and 3 others. Brabra's Brother and niece's
families are listed on the same manifest.
I owe a debt of gratitude to the many family members who contributed their resource data to make this site as complete as possible. You will find mistakes, missing data, and all the errors that we encounter when researching our Family Trees. Official Records can be and are wrong at times. Census data is incomplete or unreadable or just missing and at times the other data sent is incorrect or unverifiable. Keep this is mind as you review the information. If you have a source that changes the information on this site, please
don't complain. Just send us the correct information with source.
To Evylene Canup of Marietta, GA. for the Ellis Family: My sincere thanks for her years and thoroughness of research. Pages will be added as quickly as possible with her extensive research and reliable notes.
To Ed Bain for the Keener Family: Nearly 30 years went into his research and after viewing sources and tracking with mine and other family researchers, I feel we have the most correct data available. His reports and notes will also be added to this web site. Thank you, Ed, for sharing.
Thanks to Wanda Gunnet for allowing us to add her Research and File for Adam Keener's line and
put me in touch with others from this line who also allowed their data to be added.
