marriage for William KELLER and Amy 1912-1918
« on: Monday 18 October 21 03:15 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I'm trying to find a marriage for William KELLER (birth registered in Sydney as George A N KELLER on 10 June 1888, though after he moved to the US he seems to have dropped 2 years and is known as William) and Amy Constance.

They had 2 children: Leonard William born 2 Feb 1919 (mmn transcribed as KEYENHO) and Audrey born 27 Feb 1921 (mmn as KRIEWEPE). I'm guessing the mother's maiden name was something like KREYENHOP/KREINHOP.  :-\

I have them in the 1920, 30 and 40 censuses where Amy says she is from Germany, born c1890 and she was married at age 22 (in 1930) so c1912, though it could be later.

Any help finding their marriage or other info re Amy would be most appreciated.

Also have the marriage cert now

Love Amy's occupation - "chocolate dipper". (Also note William's place of birth "Austria", and his mother's name not quite correct either, though close.  ::)  )
