          KELLER-On Saturday, May 22, at Jerseyville, William Keller, father of  D. J. Keller, of 1212 Mason street, this city.
          William Keller was born October 21, 1801, in Rowan county, North Carolina, was married to  Dorothy Nail on the 27th day of September, 1824, moved to Illinois the following year and settled in Greene county, west of Carrollton, where he lived two years and then moved to the present family homestead where he ever afterward resided up to the time of his death.  He was the father of fourteen children of whom seven are living, four boys and three girls.  There have been 45 grandchildren, 30 of whom are now living and eleven great grandchildren.  He made a profession of religion and united with the M. E. Church about the year 1836 or 1837; he was a faithful and earnest Christian, and a kind and generous husband and father; in all his dealings with his fellow men he was known as an honest, upright conscientious man, ever ready to help the needy, to uphold all that was right and condemn all that was wrong; he walked in the paths of peace and righteousness, while in life, and on Saturday, May 22, after one week's illness, quietly yielded up his soul to God who gave it.  On the 17th of August last, his devoted and faithful wife, who had shared his joys and sorrows through life, was suddenly stricken with paralysis, and has ever been a helpless invalid-now left to mourn his loss.
          The wife of the deceased is a sister of  Mr. Samuel NailObediah Nail  and  Mrs. Patrick Ray, all of this [Shelby] county.
