This is my GG Uncle. On the interment record it mentioned he was murdered by Dick Hurley, but that is all I knew. Thanks.
Rich – Do you know if the John Keating mentioned in the linked article might also have been your G.G. Uncle?
it might be, but I can’t be sure. I have written proof on the murder, but not on the other. there were other John Keatings in Cincinnati at that time.
