1762 Mary Keller married to Allen Griffin


George Adam Keller b. abt 1725, married to Mary



SIBLINGS:  (known at this time)

Adam Keller b abt 1749-53  (“likely” a child of George Adam Keller – receives ownership of the same land that George Adam Keller owned in Newberry County, South Carolina after George Adam Keller leaves for Savannah Georgia – its possible he is a cousin, but with the same name (Adam), that George Adam Keller often used, it seems more likely Adam Keller is George Adam Keller’s child.  Adam Keller is not included in George Adam Keller’s will – but this may be because George Adam Keller conveyed much of his land in Newberry County, South Carolina to Adam Keller, and maybe others).

George Paul Keller abt. 1755-60 (confirmed in George Adam Keller’s will in Georgia)

Mary Keller abt. 1760 (confirmed in George Adam Keller’s will in Georgia)

Jacob Keller abt 1762  (not confirmed – at this point, this is an assumption on my part that Jacob is a child of George Adam Keller’s.  He is the correct age, and appears to be living next to, or possibly in, land of George Adam Keller’s)


There is not much information about Mary Keller.   I know she exists due to the will of her father George Adam Keller, who names her as an executrix in his will.  He also appears to devise 1/2 of his estate in Chatham County, Georgia to Allen Griffin, and the other half to John Adam Kellar.  I believe this conveyance to Allen Griffin indicates he is the husband of his daughter Mary Keller – this is not completely clear in the will, but it does seem to indicate she is.

1794 Dec 8 (proveup date) – George Adam Kellar – last will – leave to grandson John Adam Kellar one half a lot situate at the Trustee Gardens bounded west by the common of Savannah, north by Wright Street, East by a lot of Abraham Gay, and southeast by a lot No. 7, his choice of the half of the lott the upper corner viz the other half to Allan Griffin and their heirs forever. I nominate and appoint my son George Paul Kellar and Mary my daughter executor and executrix to this my last will . . . Signed: George Ad Kellar.
