Carola: Susanna Keever married William Watson in May 1813 in Jefferson County, Ohio, so it is not possible for her to be the daughter of Mary Roby who married john keever less than 3 months later in September 1813 (she would have been the daughter of John's first wife). Mary Keever married Richard King Feb. 17, 1815, in Jefferson County, Ohio, so she also cannot be the daughter of Mary Roby; she would have been 2 yrs old at the most. If Jacob Keever was actually the son of Mary Roby, as you state, then he would have been 4 years old at the most when he married Anna Hoagland in Jefferson County, Ohio, on Sept. 18, 1817.Also, this John Keever never had a daughter named Margaret, unless she died before she ever had children, because John's will, which I have seen in person and photocopied, never mentions a Margaret or heirs of Margaret. Even though Jacob and Susana were already dead, he does mention their heirs in his will. I've also been to Jefferson County, Ohio, where I saw the above original marriage records as well as original land and tax records of my John Keever, and John was in Jeff County, Ohio, by 1801 and lived there until he moved to Morgan County in 1836. Did your Catherine Hawn die in Jefferson County, Ohio? I don't think so. Please double check and document all your "facts" so others aren't confused. Thank you. Deb
