My maiden name is Keels from southern Ohio.
My dad's family is African American. They settled
in Blackfork, just below Jackson Ohio.
Some of my dad's relatives would like to claim
to be Indian, but they are not.
There is no history that I know about past my
The first black baptist church in Southern Ohio
was built on the Keels' family farm.
I would love to know about the history. Where did
my dad's family begin?
Where did the family name come from.
One thing that I do know is that the last name started as
McKeel, then changed to Keel and then finally to Keels.
The cemetary at the church shows the changes.
