John Keller & Mary Bowman

Quite a lot is known about the Keller family.  John Keller was born June 12, 1736 in Lancaster Co., PA to Hans George and Anna Barbara Hottel Keller.  He married Mary Bowman (who I have very little information on) in Virginia in 1761.

It is known that in August 1786 he was given a land grant in Shenandoah Co., VA on Stony Creek.  I am not sure when his wife, Mary died however he and his daughter, Mary came to Greene Co., TN in 1795.  He bought 400 acres of the "richest creek bottoms" in Green County at the confluence of Dry Fork and Roaring Fork of Lick Creek, about 5 air miles due south of Greenville.  John and Mary had the following children:

Elizabeth b: 1762                                                              George b: ?                                                                         Mary b: 1771                                                                          Henry b: 1775                                                                    Jacob b: 1768                                                               Benjamin b: 1769                                                             Daniel b: 1773                                                                     David b: 1777                                                                          Joseph b: 1789
