My family came from northwest Arkansas around the Harrison/Yellville area in 1907 just before Oklahoma statehood. The story is there were two Keeter brothers that left North Carolina one going to Texas and the other to Arkansas from which we are derived. A common name that surfaces is James Justus. Also John. My grandfather was John Franklin. His father was Richard(Dick). I don't know why, but my family did not keep in contact with apparent relatives left in Arkansas as far as I know. I have met a Cecil Keeter from Walters, OK, who says he is from the Texas side. I have noted a listing for a small town northwest of Fort Worth named Keeter, Texas. My fathers name was Cecil. I am interested in hearing from anyone to learn about the Keeter family, and if we might have definite common ancestors. Would appreciate any information on anyones research about the family. Do we come from English decent, etc?
