Descendants of 

Albert Keppels

My Great Grandfather

A year ago I didn't even know my Great grandfathers name. But, with the help of two very
wonderful ladies, Linda Beigh (Biescke Family), and Deb (Belders Family), I now have
his name, and a family that I didn't even
know existed.  Every photo you see below was shared with me by them.
A very special thanks to you

This is a picture that from the beginning I have been unsure of who they are.  It was found among my father's collection of photo's.  I believe that the man on the far right is Albert Keppels.  When I compare this picture with the picture of him above I  would say I am very close.  The man in the middle is George Washington Belders (identified by Gregory Belders, Jan 2005). 
unknown family
I include this picture with this family because of the resemblence of the man to other Keppel members.  Maybe you can help me out on this one.
