Mary Keepers Enos Connellsville, PA

  of 521

I am trying to locate the names of mary Keepers Enos's parents and grandparents, and great grandparents. She was supposedly a second cousin to President James K. Polk, which means her grandparent's siblings were related to the Polks, Knoxes, Wilsons, etc. I believe her father was Major Jospeh Keepers, and his father was John Keepers, originally from the Carlisle area of PA. She was born in Connellsville, and is buried in Chestnut Hill cemetery 1820-1911. Her husband was Jonathan Enos. If there are some descendants of their children : george b/ 1849 d. 1905, married Elizabeth Wilhelm.; Emma married Henry Kurtz; Mary married J.K. Taggert, and Edgar Jonathan b. 1865 and married Sarah Luella Sherrick. I am related to Dr. Joseph Brandt Enos who married Sarah Teresa Nickel.He was also a son of Mary Keepers and Jonathan Enos. There is a grave for an Elizabeth Keepers b. ca 1780-1790, and died in 1870's? She is buried in the Wilson plot of the Chestnut Hill Cemetery, and her husband's name is listed as being Joseph Keepers. Anyway, if anyone knows the names of mary's mother's maiden name, etc., please get in touch with me. Thank you.
