Hope this helps a litte. John Keeter and Susannah Justice had a daughter, Jane, age 20, [b. cir 1830]in their household in 1850. I have no marriage info for her except what the Keeter Dictionary states.
George Johnson Keeter and his first wife, Darcus Allen, had a Mary Jane Keeter in their household in 1850, age 13 [b. cir 1837].
This "Jane" fits more closely (by age) with the Jane Keeter who married Franklin Smith, but there is one "small" problem. According to your info and the census info, Mary Jane Keeter was born before G. J. Keeter and Darcus Allen were married in 1838.
To complicate matters, Mary Jane's marriage to James Franklin Smith was witnessed by a J. M. Keeter, who appears to be James Monroe Keeter, the son of James Keeter & Elizabeth Justice (sister of Susanna Justice).
If Mary Jane was the daughter of G. J. Keeter, then James M. Keeter was Mary Jane Keeter's 2nd cousin.
If, however, Mary Jane was the daughter of John Keeter & Susannah Justice, then James Monore Keeter was her 1st cousin through her Justice & Keeter lines.
