Hi! I found your ancestor -- but her name is Sabina Keep in the Keep Family Book that I have. She was born in Longmeadow, MA Nov. 20, 1769. She married March 23, 1792 Deacon Walter white of Longmeadow. He was born June 13, 1769 and died July 14, 1819. Sabina died May 9, 1835. I have information on their children, if you want it. Several went to seminary or married clergy persons.

Sabina's ancestors are:
John Keep (the earliest ancestor in the book)
who married Sarah Leonard of Springfield, MA. She was born at Springfield Dec. 13, 1645 and was a daughter of John and Sarah (Heald) Leonard.

Samuel Keep, born at Longmeadow, MA Aug 22, 1670, died Aug 23, 1755. He married my ancestor Sarah Colton, born Sept. 25, 1678 in Longmeadow and died June 20, 1754.

Samuel Keep, born at Longmeadow, Nov. 12, 1700, died Nov. 9, 1761. He married Mary Colton, duaghter of John and Joanna Colton on Jan. 15, 1736. She died Feb. 15, 1737. He then married Sarah Beman of Enfield, CT on March 8, 1738.

Their son Samuel Keep, born at Longmeadow May 26, 1739, died Oct. 20, 1823, is the father of Sabina. He married on June 4, 1767 Sabina Cooley, daughter of Joseph and Experience (Hale) Cooley. She was born March 9, 1747 and died Dec. 12, 1823.
There's lots of descriptive information in the Keep Family book, which I have on loan.
I'd be happy to photo copy the pages of the book and mail them to you, if you'd give me your street address. My email address is

Hope this helps!
