Week 12 (March 19-25): Misfortune
In my research on one of my interesting ancestors, W.R. Keithley, I continue to learn interesting tidbits of his character and situation from newspaper articles such as the article below. It tells us that Mr. Keithley had been “hidden under the name of Grover Cleveland” as he traveled by railroad. The date of the article was 1896 and Grover Cleveland was the U.S. president. Later in the article it was noted that Lawyer Attorney “felt his misfortune keenly”.

“Hiding” under the name Grover Cleveland? That’s kind of like hiding in plain sight, isn’t it? 😉 I hope you will consider adding this post to the March Genealogy Blog Party: As Luck Would Have It at https://mydescendantsancestors.com/2018/03/blog-party-luck.html.
And did the county supply the name or did he?
