I am a descendant of Mary and Job. My father was Gordon Keirle originally of Alton, IL, a great grandson of Mary and Job. I would love to help you fill in some of the blanks. I have a public tree on ancestry for the Keirle Family. It still needs lots of work and you have helped fill in some of the English side especially for Pitman and Baker. We knew very little of the origination of the famly as Cheddar and Bristol were always mentioned. Then, 25 ro so years ago, someone sent the Keirle Family Bible to my great aunt who passed it on to me. That's where we first saw the word Othery. By looking in the IGI of the LDS, we learned that Othery was a village and I eventually was able to acquire maps of the Somerset area and locate it. (Obviously that was long before internet!)

I have sent you a private email.
I don't have much on Kierle's but we can cross reference what we do have. That'd be great. I could only get as far as Otto, Frank and Albert's children. I found a bit on Mary's brother Henry Baker and a photo of his grave in Macoupin, also a death cert copy for Gilbert Kierle, and biographical sketches on Gilbert Kierle and Henry Baker. Most of my research was on the Baker and Pitman families. Would like to share info.
