     Gladys Anna Palmer was born on 22 August 1902 Kansas. She was the daughter of Constantine Bruce Palmer and Agnes Aitken. Gladys Anna Palmer married Ralph McKeel. Gladys Anna Palmer died 19 March 1995 , San Mateo County, California at age 92.1
     Her married name was McKeel.

In the 1930 census, we find Agnes Palmer, age 62, widowed, first married at age 23, in Oak Grove, Clackamas County, Oregon. With her are daughter Gladys McKee and son-in-law, Ralph. They've been married about a year.

A person sent the following to the McKeel list 3 Feb 2009:
My father was born in Oregon, in Portland. His name is Ralph Bruce McKeel. He went by Bruce. All I know is that my grandmothers name was Gladas. Since I was just a baby when my grandfather passed and was never really talked about. My father married Lynn Mackey after he moved to CA.
My father had one brother, if my memory serves me right, he died when he was a baby. My parants adopted 4 girls. Me being the youngest. I have never met the McKeel side on my family and would love to know if anyone knows about me."
There was a response, giving the basic information on Gladys and Ralph, and the followup was:

Thank you so very much for the info. The info that you gave me about Glayds, lived in San Mateo, that is my grandmother on my fathers side. That is where I grew up. I do not remeber the date that she died, but the year sounds about right. She died from Alzheimers.
Again, thank you for the info."

That's all the posts, except one on the Olts list where s/he is discussing his/her possible bio-parents.
