Tina, I hate to bother you since I am not sure where my McKeehan's belong (family wise) but I really need help!!
My cousin who is now deceased sent me some info. on my gggrandparents. She shows them as Matilda McKeehan born 3-5-1826 in Tenn. died 1-22-1899 in Meigs Co, Tn. and was married to Allen Perry. She shows her parents to be George McKeehan and Elizabeth Millard/Millerd.
I can't verify this and can't seem to find any of the other McKeehans who have a Matilda to be the daughter of George.
In all of your research, have you ever seen a Matilda? I do know that Elbert Severe was involved in taking care of matilda's will when she died (I have not seen the will though) so it would appear that he could have been related.
