Keele Family Genealogy Forum
I descend from James Keele b 1743 Eng.(?), d 1819 Warren Co. KY, believed to be son of Arthur Keele & Sarah Monotte (but I need proof). Did Arthur Keele have a will? James Keele married Mariah Shannon (date/place unknown). Their son Isaac Keele b 1786 (VA or KY) married Patience Kerr b 1786 KY (d/o James Kerr & Patience Wells) in Mercer Co. KY 1804. Daughter of Isaac & Patience was Mariah Keele b ca 1805 KY, d 1831 Montgomery Co. MO. She married James Smith (b 1802 VA) on 8 May 1823 (probably Montgomery Co. MO). After Mariah's death, James remarried (Elizabeth Wright) & moved to OR (1846). My ggg grandmother Mariah Smith b 1830 was d/o James & Mariah. Would love to compare families & notes with someone.
