I have been researching the following surnames:Keating, Marten, Camp, and Applebee. My current area of concentration on the maternal side of my family is with the APPLEBEE surname. On the paternal side, I am concentrating on the KEATING surname.

Gottlieb Marten and wife (Louise Giehler) arrived in the United States from the Empire of Germany in the late 1800's. The family settled in LaSalle County, Illinois, near Ottawa.

The Appleby(ee)'s arrived in the United States before the early 1800's. The family first lived in the New England area. Some located to the prairies of Illinois about 1825 near Streator, Illinois, in LaSalle County.

On the paternal side of my family, James P. Keating and wife (Alice Cunningham) were of Irish descent, but living in Scotland. They arrived in Scotland about 1860. At least four of their sons (Bernard, Peter J., Richard, and Edward Francis) moved to the Streator area of LaSalle County, Illinois, in the last quarter of the 19th century. My great grandparents were Edward Francis Keating and Mary Maria O'Neil.

I know very little about any ancestors with the surname of CAMP.

I am interested in tracing the roots of all family branches within the shores of Europe.
