Elena, thank you for your response. I'm trying to reconcile your research with what we think we know. Did you mean that Susannah Justice Keeter's parents were James and Lucy Justice? Your message is the first time we have known who the grandparents of James M. Paddy Keeter were. Do you have Paddy Keeter's father as John (1826-1887)? and his parents are James and Katy Stringfield (dates?). We actually have two Keeter lines and had tentatively identified James and Katy as parents of Ichabod Keeter (1804-?). I'm wondering if this generation is where the two Keeter lines connect. Do you have them located in a particular place in the 1700's?We are descendents of Thomas Belvin Keeter and Nancy Ann (who also had a Keeter maiden name) Are we cousins?
