Thanks for the message, Randall. I found some documentation my late Father had collected, including the "The Keesee Family in Pittsylvania County, Virginia", by Vincent A. Keesee. Does appear that most of my relatives came out of that area. Booker Thomas Keesee appears to be my Great Grandfather; my Grandfather was John Pollard Keesee; my Father was Charles Rogers Keesee and was the first born. I'm the first born daughter (no brothers) and have Pollard as my middle name! I remember going to Alta Vista and Lynchburg, Virginia as a child.
