Levi Keister/Keaster/Albemarle Co, VA

Hello all,
Seeking the descendants of Levi Benton Keister/Keaster and Susannah Wood who were married in Albemarle County, VA in early 1866. Their children were Sarah (aka Sallie) (born October 1866) (married John Chambers, a widower, in about 1893); Levi P.; Winston (married Margaret Pritchett); George; and Lucy (married Simon Pritchett). All of the children of Levi and Susannah spelled their last name Keaster, except for Sarah, who insisted on the Keister spelling. Levi served with the 56th Virginia, Co. H during the Civil War under the name L.B. Keaster and died in the mid-1880s. I have not been able to locate any of the descendants of this family although the rest of the family has been located. Levi was the son of Peter and Frances Wood Keister and was born in Albemarle County, VA in 1835 or 1836.

If anyone has any information, I would greatly appreciate it.

G.E. Colpitts
