I'm researching my Keith family heritage, and I am looking to confirm a married between James Keith and Elizabeth Contee about 1786, or there after.
James Keith (b. 1734, Hamilton Parish, Fauguier Co., VA)(d. 16 Oct 1824), was previously married to Nancy Ann Hacker, but was reportedly captured by Indians during Pontiac's War prior to 1765.Upon a peace agreement, and his release, James Keith found that his first wife had remarried and official divorced James Keith in 1768.
Shortly after divorcing Nancy Ann Hacker, my research shows that James Keith married Elizabeth Contee.
Elizabeth Contee (b. 1746, Pleasant Prospect, Prince Georges, MD)(d. 1827, Shelby Co., IN) is the daughter of John Contee and Margaret Snowden.
Can anybody confirm, deny, or provide suspicisions on whether or not this information is acturate to any degree?Any help would be appriciated.
