Thought I had a request. Maybe I mis-copied. Send back to me?
|Keil||RE: William Frederick Keil|
Hello again! Uh Oh… Fair warning, I'm passionate about any history and family history is especially fascinating to me. You may regret opening up the "fire hose". They lived at 5421 South Fife Street. I think my grandfather John Keil bought the land soon after coming out from Missouri sometime around 1900. He went to work as a blacksmith for the railroad and went back to Missouri to marry Louisa Wyss. They had 2 more sons after William, Aaron in 1908 and my father Walter in 1914, both born there on the property. When John learned that he had a terminal illness he added a small grocery store to their home so that his wife and two young sons would have a means of support. He died in 1923 when my father was 9 years old. My father in turn grew up to expand and run the store – Keil's Market - and care for his mother who lived in her home in the building until his death in 1953 at age 39 when I was 9. My mother ran the store for another few years after that until she remarried and sold it. Her mother, my other grandmother, lived next door in the house to the south. My aunt, my mother's sister lived two houses up the street to the north. My Grandmother Louisa's sister and her husband lived across the alley and another of my grandfather's brothers lived across the street from them. It was a real family compound. All the houses but John and Louisa's original little house are still there. The store is now painted green or it was when I stopped in and introduced myself a few years ago and the young man who now owns it gave me a tour. It's still mostly as I remember it. South Tacoma was at one time filled with Keil families as eventually 5 of John's 6 brothers, 1 of his 6 sisters and several cousins and in-laws relocated there from Missouri. They are now mostly in the Mountain View Cemetery or, in the case of their descendants, scattered to the winds. Sorry if this is too much information, but I sure enjoyed telling the story. Thanks very much for asking.

|Robert||RE: Victor Osborn|
I am still researching Victor. I don't know if he was married or had any children, though I do know who his parents were (my great uncle and aunt).

I wanted to thank you for taking the time, to take a picture of Victor Osborn's memorial stone. He was my 3rd great uncle. I really appreciate it.

Hello Chad: I want to thank you for the three great photos you took of the final resting place for this baby boy. It was only relatively recently that my younger brother discovered his existence. We went together to the cemetery and wanted very much to walk back and try to locate the site but his failing health prevented it. Not long after that he too had passed away, very unexpectedly and way too soon. I was very close to my grandmother, this baby's mother, and had no idea she had suffered the heartache of losing her first child. For all these reasons these wonderful photos mean a great deal to me. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to locate the burial site and take them for us. I feel now that a little piece of our family has been knitted back together. Blessings to you and your family. Kathie Keil Crozier
