I am still searching for information on Martin G. Keith, who was born abt. 1839 and died in 1869 in Noble County, Ohio. As I have noted in previous postings, he married or applied for a marriage license to a Margaret Sparrowgrove, 1858 in Noble County, Noble County records also show that he married Rhoda Carnes in 1868. One of these marriages resulted in a son Wesley Elmer Keith, my Great Grandfather. I have researched Noble County Records, land, probate, and census but I have been unable to link Martin G. Keith to any of the Keith Families that lived in the Village of Keith, or other counties that border Noble.
After Martin died in 1869, Rhoda Carnes, Keith married a John Longfellow. Census records indicate Elmer Keith living with the Longfellow Family.
Noble County Records indicate many Keith's lived in this county, Please check your records for any trace of Martin G. Keith.
