Surname Saturday- Kime

Last week, I wrote about the surname Hyman. My 2nd great grandfather- James W. Hyman (1854-1926) married Mary Kime (1859-1917). Her parents were William Martin Kime (1819-1871) & Cynthia Ann Bell (1834-1901). Mary's great-grandfather- Johannes "John" Keim (1754-1815) was born in Germany.


U.S. and Canada, Passenger and Immigration Lists Index:

Keim: There are 996 results with this surname spelling: here are a few:
