William Kelly Keachie
ID # 5213, (1802-1869)
|Birth||William Kelly Keachie was born on 30 March 1802 at New York State. |
|Marriage||He married Janet Anderson. |
|Death||He died on 6 March 1869 at age 66. |
|Burial||He was buried at Paris Cemetery, Paris, Brant County. |
|Note||William Keachie was located on the south half of lot 26, concession 3 in Dumfries Township at the time of the 1842 Upper Canada census. William and Janet were enumerated at the time of the 1851 census in South Dumfries and the agricultural page for this census shows the Keachie's still on lot 26, concession 3. He is also recorded as being there in Sutherland's County of Brant, Gazetteer and Directory, 1869-70. (The pages are headed Onondaga Township, but a careful perusal will show that this record is in South Dumfries.) William was probably dead by the time this directory was printed.|
The Franklin Keachie chart shows death dates for William and Janet as they appear in Paris Cemetery. William's wife is not named, but the chart tells that they had no children. Certainly, there are none with them at the time of the 1851 census and a search of marriage registrations has turned up nothing. An index indicates that both William and Janet left wills. These will be on microfilm at the Archives of Ontario and have yet to be examined.
