SAMUEL KEEBLER  Samuel Keebler, was born on Kindrick's Creek, in Washington County, Tenn., August 26, 1804. He moved with his father from Kindrick's Creek to Limestone (same county), in the year 1838; he has lived at his present home every since. He is a well-to-do farmer, and has made farming a success. He went through with everything he ever undertook, put nothing off till tomorrow that could be done today--this was his motto. He owns much fine land, has a large fine brick house on the farm he lives on, well furnished. There are about 700 acres where he lives, besides this he has about 1,000 acres in different parts of the county (Washington): about 700 of these are the best in the county. He began the battle of life for himself, when about sixteen years old. He belongs to the Christian Baptist Church. He has been an old line Whig, now a Republican. At the present writing he is eighty-three years old, and can see to read common print without spectacles (he has his second sight). He is the youngest child of nine children, four boys and five girls; all are dead but him. Jacob Keebler, son of Jacob and Catherine Keebler, was born October 22, 1765, at Marcus Hook, New Castle Co., Del. Mary Young, daughter of James and Barbara Young, was born about one mile from Marcus Hook, Chester Co., Penn., September 17, 1765. The aforesaid Jacob Keebler and Barbara Young, were married by Edward Varnum, in Chester Town, March 11, 1785. After marriage they moved to Philadelphia, Penn. Two children were born there: Sarah and John. Thence they moved to Berkeley County, Va. Eight years later they moved to Tennessee, and settled on Kindrick's Creek, Washington County, in 1799. Jacob Keebler was of German descent, and Catharine of English descent. Jacob, Jr., was a soldier of the Revolution in the early part of his life, and, in the latter part of his life, farming was his occupation. James and Barbara Young were of English stock. The former was born September 20, 1736, and the latter May 10, 1733.
