I would be pleased to recieve the Kelton burial records. I have seen a photo from an old book of the marker for John "Jack" Rosevear, brother of my ancestor Joseph Rosevear. Their sister Thamazine Rosevear Grose may also be buried there?

I think I have a copy of the 1870 US census for Kelton.

I have not been to Kelton, but my uncle has done some research in the Box Elder Co. trying to locate the ranch property, but has not been successful. The ranch is said to be "18 miles from Kelton," and may be called "Rose Mare"? Joseph probably sold it in the late 1870's, but I would be interested in any land records for him and his family. He returned to Box Elder Co. in the mid 1880's, then went to Three Creek, Idaho.

Joseph's brother William Rosevear worked on the construction of the railroad, and lost an arm in an "accident." He eventually went back to England, but don't know what happened to his wife. He had a daughter Nancy, b. in Australia.

In an old family album we have a few photos of other residents of Kelton that I could share with their descendants: John Hume and S. Dunn, who were both employed at the Kelton Hotel, ca 1870's. Also one of the Riley tiwns who later were at Hailey, Idaho.

Let me know what info I should send you about my family and what records you will be searching.

What is your connection to Kelton? Did you have family there at one time? I would love to find old newspaper stories about people who lived in Kelton and the area, espically in the 1870's.
