My full name is Arter Lee Keeter, Jr.I am the son of Arter Lee Keeter and Artha Ruth Phifer; gs of Herman Louie Keeter and Nellie Rae Broome; g-gs of Nathaniel N Keeter and Mildred Ida Kuykendall; gg-gs of John P Keeter and Nancy Jane (Corn?); ggg-gs of (???) and Nancy Catherine Keeter; gggg-gs of J Cabert Keeter and Cynthia Jackson; then it's James Keeter and Catherine (Katy) Stringfield; and at last James Keeter and Lucy.
My Nathaniel N Keeter came to Union County around 1900 from Rutherford and settled in the Indian Trail area SE of Charlotte.He raised his children there but most returned to Rutherford County.My Grandfather, Herman, stayed and today most all, if not all the Keeters in Union County are his decendants.He and Nellie raised 11 children.I have a lot of cousins.Hehe.
As you can see there is a hiccup in the line.I have searched for years trying to discover Nancy Catherine's husband.She had 4 children and all took the Keeter last name.It is also important to note that she and her children are almost always listed as Mulatto in the census reports.
Well that's my lineage.Of course I have all of the brothers and sisters of those folks and most of their associated lines in my database.I am new to these boards and look forward to sharing more as I make more contacts.
