Well welcome to the forum David. Glad to see you are finally making your first post.
That does indeed seem to be a lovely old keris. Also seems to be an old sunggingan wrongko with a nice silver pendok and a rare form of planar hilt. If you are able better photos of all parts would be helpful in sorting out any new information you don't already have.
Can you tell us more about how you received this as pusaka and what provenance you have that the first owner may have been born in Yogyakarta and lived in Tegal?
BTW, i believe that planar hilt form that you have with the "pot belly" is known as Narada Kandha. The form can be found at least in both Central and East Jawa and though i would need to see better photos, your appears to be an old and well carved example.
