*?CONRAD KECK = FREDERICK KECK? by Hilary J. Rauch
*Oldenburg / Lower Saxon Research Center / NAUSA
My purpose of putting this on-line is to show that Hilary J. Rauch had ?Conrad Keck = Frederick Keck?
That means it IS PRESENTED NOT AS A FACT BUT A THEORY.
People looking for the parents of CONROD "COONROD" KECK a/k/a CONRAD "COONROD" KECK of Claiborne Co, TN cannot use a theory as a fact. The Frederick is only a supposition and doesn't belong in his name at all until it can be proven. Let's keep on looking and take the Frederick off until we prove it belongs there. We don't even know if he was one of the Northampton Keck's, other Keck by another spelling or if he could have been a Hessian soldier, who may indeed have fought where he said he did and deserted or whatever. Likely he had another spelling of Keck. We need to be looking for all the theories in hopes of finding the true answers.
