KANE, John, original stockholder of Auraria City 1858.

KARZEWSKY, E., one of first bakeries in Auraria, 1859, situated on Ferry Street, two doors below Wooten’s Store. (This location would be at present time described as 1427 11th Street.) He had a partner, Henry Reitze (see this) and he also in addition to baking bought some Donation Lots with agreement to build hewed log house, probably being earlier than the others. He was grantor of Denver lots to T. W. Bayaud, Dec 10 same year. (See for his properties index to early Arapahoe County Land Records.)

KASCHER, Philip E. S., is probably an arrival of ’59 or somebody was of opinion he was so arrived, for an express package is advertized for him in RMN. (File of this year)

KASSERMAN & COMPANY, of Auraria, had first carpenter shop on Ferry and Fifth Streets (now Larimer and 11th). LUTTRELL and HEMPHILL associated with Kasserman in the shop, according to tradition at corner of 6th and St. Louis (now Lawrence and 19th Streets). These notes are culled from a Directory of Denver 1866. (It is said that they later built a two-story building at the last address.) S. D. Kasserman is said to have lived or had residence in 1866 on 5th between Cherry and Ferry, an address corrected to Larimer between 11th and 12th at this time. There is in the files of 1868 (paper not noted) a marriage as follows: “Stephen D. Kasserman, and Marie D. Starling, married Dec 17, 1868, by J. L. Peck.”

KAST, Frank J., original stockholder of Auraria in 1858. The Auraria Town Company granted to him 37 lots in City of Auraria Nov 5, 1859, and in 1860 he bought lots of City of Denver Town Company.

KEEL (or Keal) AND COMPANY, mining, three men, Russell’s Gulch, 1859.

KEELER & MEAD, mining, summer of 1859, Illinois Gulch and Missouri Flats. (The name of Keeler might be confused with Kehler ? - see)

KEENE, J., shareholder Golden City Association 1859. (October)

KEGHLER (or Kehler?), W. O., member first Constitutional Convention from Illinois Precinct. This Precinct had in 1859 five delegates, so must have been large in population, as Auraria only had nine delegates. It was a mining camp.

KEHLER & COMPANY, mining Nevada Gulch, 1859.

KEHLER, the Rev. J. H., is said by one authority to have arrived in 1859, but as his church was not organized until four months later this is unlikely, unless he is identical with the John H. Kehler above, which seems not stated in history. But he may be a near relative of Sheriff Keeler (?) and it is best to place a few notes relating to him. He lived in Denver, and was rector of St. John’s Church in the Wilderness, at the beginning of its establishment Apr 9, 1860 until after his election as Chaplain of the First Colorado Cavalry, and delivered his farewell sermon Jun 8, 1862. He must have been advanced in years for the following death notice would indicate it: Died, Talbot B. Kehler, eldest son of Rev. J. H. Kehler of Denver City, died Mar 2, 1860 at his residence near Marysville, California, after an illness of ten days. Aged 38 years. (RMN, May 16, 1860). The following marriages were solemnized by Rev. Kehler: Sep 27, 1860 Henry J. Rogers and Miss Cremona Kehler, at residence of Rev. J. H. Kehler, Denver. Another: In Denver, Sep 27, 1860 at residence of Rev. J. H. Kehler, Mr. Thomas G. Wildman, and Miss Mary B. Kehler. (Both notices are from Western Mountaineer, Oct 4-6, 1860, Golden.) In Dec 1860 it is noted that the Episcopal Church festival at Mr. Kehler’s was very successful, and attended by about 175 ladies and gentlemen. (Western Mountaineer, p. 3, Dec 13, 1860)

In one place I have seen it stated that Rev. Kehler was originally of Virginia. He was succeeded in the Episcopal Church by Rev. H. R. Hitchins. A ranche on Dry Creek was recorded by John H. Kehler in 1859, “about three miles from Arapahoe (City) and the same distance from Golden Gate Village, 160 acres, adjoins ranche of William P. Deye.” Recorded Oct 11, 1859. (Jefferson County Land Records, Golden) A portrait of Rev. J. H. Kehler is on Smiley’s History of Denver, p. 719.

On July 25, 1859, he is grantor of a few Denver lots and styles himself as “of America.” This may be however, an incorrect spelling of “Auraria.”? It could also suggest that he was a new arrival from Europe.? He grants again some Denver lots on Jul 27 and on Aug 23 records certificate of his lots, naming lot 22, block 68. He had Donation Lots for building, earlier in the season of 1859, possibly in 1858? His name was misspelled KILBY in one of these papers.

KELLER, Christian, (see Kelber above) lot donated to him, later given to Arthur Botts, Denver, Aug 1859.

KELLER, the names of J. H., also Jack, are accompanied with mentions of lots donated and granted, but probably refers to Kehler above.

KELLER, Matthew, is grantee of Denver lots on Blake Street between D. and E. on Oct 25, 1859. He is still “of Arapahoe County” in December of same year, and on 30th is grantor of lot 6, block 21, Denver. (Arapahoe County Land Records)
