Hi, My mother's father was James Whittle Keatts, born in 1868 in Patrick Co. Va. His father was Wm.ClayKeatts of Pittsylvania Co. The line goes back to John Keatts of Henrico Co. John was born in the 1600"s. I'm not sure if he is the Immigrant. I feel sure all Keatts lines coming out of Pittsylvania Co. are related. The first Keatts in Pitts. was Curtis and his sons John and Charles late 1700's. There is no evidence in the records of any other families with the Keatts surname in that area.
