Fort Wayne, Indiana
A branch of the Samuel KELKER family in Fort Wayne, Indiana, brother to my great-great-grandmother Amanda KELKER TIMMONS, became Catholic around the turn of the Twentieth Century, although originally they were German Lutheran in Pennsylvania.
The distant Isaac FALLIS and Susannah MARTIN family in Missouri has descendants that became Catholic in Missouri although most FALLIS families passing through Kentucky were Baptist. One descendant related that her mother was adamant their Fallis line was Catholic, although all evidence shows the contrary.
