John Keel's GRANDFATHER WAS: FREDERICK KEEL B.1762 IN NORTH CAROLINA (family believes he may have been Cherokee Indian). He died March 2, about 1829 in Lawrence County, Arkansas. His wife's name was Elizabeth (last name unknown)
Frederick's son and John L. Keel's father was: HARDY KEEL, BORN 1784 IN NORTH CAROLINA, DIED 1855. HE MIGRATED TO RIPLEY COUNTY, MISSOURI
I would appreciate any information anyone has on this family.
