John Heinrich Keller

Joiner

Born: c. 1794

John H. Keller was first recorded as being employed as an apprentice to Brother Belo as a joiner. He worked there until 1816 when he requested release from Brother Belo. He was instead employed by Brother Thomas Wohlfarth. There was a noted abundance of joiners in Salem at the time, so this was allowed.
Keller was sent to the community of Friedberg shortly thereafter. There he built his own house. Keller provided the finish work for the house, including the doors, mantles, cornice, window and door facings, chair rails, sash, and back porch.
