PRIVATE GEORGE WILLIAM KEILMAN was born in New Jersey on June 8, 1925 to George and Margaret Keilman. His father worked as a draftsman in a shipyard. In 1930 the family owned a home at 130 Pennsylvania Road in Brooklawn NJ. In 1933 the elder Keilman served as Police Recorder in Brooklawn.

Private George Keilman graduated high school prior to being drafted. He was inducted into the United States Army on September 14, 1943 at Camden NJ. He died while serving America during World War II. A childhood friend, David Reich, thought that he was killed at Omaha Beach in June of 1944. This, however was not the case. Private Keilman was killed on November 26, 1944 as the 95th Division pushed towards the Saar River.

George William Keilman was brought home and buried at Lakeview Memorial Park in Cinnaminson, New Jersey in 1949.

Dual Recorders 'Fight For Brooklawn Business' 

Some towns don't have a police recorder, some have one but Brooklawn is different. It has two! 

George B. F. Kielman recently was elected recorder by council upon recommendation of Mayor N. C. Courtney. Squire Frank N. Richardson, who was removed as recorder in January, however, still refuses to quit. They are both signing their names as recorder. 

Richardson Fined Earl A. Winch, Oaklyn, arrested by Capt. James Garrity, Bellmawr police, $1 and $1.50 costs, following an accident. Dr. Norman S. Newkirk, Salem, was the complainant. Richardson rendered a receipt signed as "recorder." 

Councilman David Reich attended the hearing and informed the parties involved that Richardson was not recorder. He took Winch to Kielman to have a complaint made against Richardson but Winch later refused. 

Richardson claims he is recorder until 1935 and will not vacate the office. Borough officials are attempting to have a test case to decide whether the borough or Richardson is right.
