In Ontario, Canada, Barton R. Keech 1823-1856 married Caroline Thurston, had sons Hiram Keech 1851-1926, and George Keech 1853-1883. Hiram married Emma Vanness/Vannest, and George married Mary Elizabeth Lucas.
Henry Keech born about 1819 in New York State, believed to be a brother to above Barton Keech, married Harriet Thurston, also born in NY State, had ten children, lived in Kent County, Ontario, Canada. Henry re-married to Isabell Jewell born about 1851 & had three more children, lived for awhile in Trowbridge, Allegan County, Michigan, USA. Some of Henry and Harriet's children remained in Kent County, Ontario and descendents are there today. I am guessing other descendents living in Michigan, USA.
Some of the other surnames connected to this Henry Keech family are Chalcraft, Ferguson, Wells/Wills, Filby, Lachlin, Peters, Remington, Wilson, Price, Stark, Traxler, Garnet, McKage/McKaig.
Any info greatly appreciated on these families, and on any Keech, Keach or Keetch families in Michigan.
