Subject: Minnie Daisy Willows Pettifer (nee Keelan)
I am hoping some of you can come through for us as we are running into a brick wall.
We are trying to find the obituary and grave site for my Great Aunt, Minnie Daisy
Charlotte Willows Keelan, born 1865 in Mussoorie, India. Daughter of Henry Nathaniel
Kennedy/Keelan, assist. to Everest for the GT Survey of India and Catherine Marianne
Kavanagh, sister to Thomas Henry Kavanagh, VC, Heroe of the Indian Mutiny, 1857. She
married Dr. Edmund Pettifer in London in 1888. He predeceased her and is buried in
Calcutta, India. We are unsure of her year of death, (sometime after 1910) but we do know
she is buried in Columbo, Ceylon as confirmed by her niece, Madeline Agnes Kavanagh Baber,
my maternal grandmother.
Could you please assist us in obtaining this information? We would be most grateful.
