On June 17, 1797 a list of settlers was presented to the government of Upper Canada by Asa Danforth and Aaron Greeley (Surveyors). Joseph Keeler was listed as residing on Lot 35, Concession I of Cramahe Township, Newcastle District. Subsequenty, on September 1, 1797, "...Messrs. Keeler, Danforth, and Greely appeared and laid before the board lists of settlers in the townships of Cramahe, Haldimand, Hamilton and Piercy (Percy) who were ordered to be confirmed in their several locations." per GEDCOM of Roxanne Munn, Oct. 1, 2005.2
  • Note: 1809; Conc A & B Lots 1 & 2, Haldimand Twp., Lakeport, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "One property in Lakeport is associated with both the Keeler and Campbell names. Joseph Keeler received the Crown grant for it in 1809, and according to the assessment records lived up to the 1830's in a frame house of one storey on lots 1 and 2, concessions A and B, Haldimand. His home probably formed the central portion of the large white frame house by the lake, owned by the Campbell family in the 1840's." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto", Margaret McBurley & Mary Byer, 1979, pg. 1533
  • Note: 1812; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Keeler's Church Street house is almost identical to the Barnum house in Grafton. The Keeler house was built about 1820, about the same time as the Barnum house; .... The Keelers bought the property on which the house stands in 1812; it was part of a Crown grant made to George Palmer nine years earlier." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto" by Margaret McBurney & Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 144 & 145.3
  • Note: 1815; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "'Old Joe', a Loyalist from Vermont, settled in the 1790's at Lakeport (known initially as Cramahe Harbour, Colborne Harbour, or Cat Hollow). Shortly afterward, he was followed by a group of settlers. They included Aaron Greeley, an American surveyor who came at Keeler's request to lay out a town site. But it is 'Young Joe' who is considered Colborne's founder. He was its first merchant, opening a store in 1815, and its first postmaster. He donated land for a public square, and to both the Methodist (now United) and Presbyterian churches. He was also justice of the peace." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto" by Margaret McBurney & Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 144.3
  • Note: circa 1835; Haldimand Twp., Lakeport, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "The many white frame houses in Lakeport recall the years when that community was an active harbour. In the schooner days, lake captains lived in what was then called Colborne Harbour or Cat Hollow. Schooners were built at the shipyard, and shipments of grain left from two large wharves - Keeler's and Campbell's. A plaster mill, grist mill, sawmill, flour mill, and distillery provided other cargo for the vessels. The ruins of Keeler's mill can still be seen on the Colborne-Lakeport road. Like the Presbyterian Church, it was built of stone from the nearby Lakeport quarry." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto", Margaret McBurley & Mary Byer, 1979, pg. 1523
  • Note*: circa 1835; Colborne, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Major-General Sir John Colborne was lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada from 1828 to 1836. In his honour, the village of Keeler's Tavern changed its name. ... The change in the name of the community did not however affect the dominance of three successive generations of Joseph Keelers - 'Old Joe', 'Young Joe' and 'Little Joe' - in Colborne settlement, growth, and industry from the 1790's until 1885. Today the home of Joseph Keeler II on Church Street attests to their economic success in the era of Colborne's greatest prosperity." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto" by Margaret McBurney & Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 144.3
