Re: DABBS FAMILY GENEALOGY
Hi again, Chris........
Keziah is an unusual name.
I found this:
Other Scripts: ÷ÀöÄéòÈä (Hebrew)
Pronounced: k?-ZIE-? (English)[key]
Means "cassia" in Hebrew, from the name of the spice tree. In the Old Testament Keziah was a daughter of Job
It seems that lots of the ancestors named some of their daughters after the daughters of Job.In the Penick line, there are several Keziahs. My husband's ancestor John Shumate married Karenhappuck Smoot.We, at first, thought Karenhappuck might be an American Indian name but not so - she was one of Job's daughters as well.Seems we learn something new every day.Molly
