Individual Note

The National Archives of Canada's Library has a copy of the "Memoirs of the Keefer Family," compiled in 1935 by the Reverend Robert Keefer, a descendant of Jacob Keefer, who was mortally wounded at Lundy's Lane in 1814. Jacob's elder brother, George Keefer, Sr., who was a cabinet maker by trade, prospered as a general merchant and surveyor and became one of the original promoters of the Welland Canal, as well as the first president of the Welland Canal Company formed for its construction. This unit includes material relating to George Keefer, Sr., (1773-1858), and to four of his sons by Catherine Lampman (1778-1813), the first of his four wives, as well as to a son by his second wife, Jane Emory, née McBride (d. 1833). His eldest son, George Keefer, Jr. (1799-1885), was a civil engineer, miller, magistrate and clerk of the Division Court at Thorold. His second son, Jacob Keefer (1800-1875), was a Thorold businessman and Post-Master who held a number of offices in local government and married Christina Theresa Grant, the only child of another local businessman and office holder, Robert Grant (d. 1838), a Scotsman from Inverness. His third son, Peter Keefer (1805-1886), settled at Galt in Waterloo County. His fifth son, John Keefer (1813-1892), remained in Thorold. His sixth son, James Keefer (1816-1874), was the clerk of the Division Court at Strathroy in Middlesex County.
