Certain family names in early Grant County show up over and over and Dormacelia’s ancestry shows this very well. Dormacelia is a Keplinger like her husband John, but from a different branch of the family. The Keplinger’s and the Feasters were quite inter-twined. Dormacelia’s grandmother was Catherine Feaster. Catherine Feaster’s brother John was the grandfather to Crittendon and Abraham Feaster. Crittendon was fourteen years older than Abraham and married John Keplinger’s younger sister (i.e Dorma’s sister-in-law) Ann Rebecca. The younger Abraham Feaster married John and Dorma’s daughter Alice. This made John a brother-in-law to one brother (Crittendon) and father-in-law to another (Abraham). At the same time both in-law brothers and his wife were great-grandchildren of John Henry Feaster I.
