Just in case anyone still watches this Keith line: I received a request from a DAR officer related to Nicodemus. She was looking for documentation confirming that N.Keith had a son named (or called) Stephen: "Please provide documentation to establish •?That Stephen Keith (generation 7) was the child of Nicodemus Keith and Margaret Borden (generation 8). We reviewed the pages that you provided from Keith: Collected Genealogies of Keith, Keath & Keeth Families in North America but were unable to determine the specific sources that the author used to identify Stephen Keith as a son of Nicodemus Keith and Margaret Borden. Other children of Nicodemus and Margeret have previously been established based on affidavits related to the extended probate of the estate of John Borden (Augusta County VA Circuit Court: Peck vs. Borden, Borden vs. Borden). The affidavits related to this probate file that are available to us name only Borden Keith, Eli Keith, William Keith, Nancy Keith Hicks and Polly Keith Hudson as children of Nicodemus and Margaret Borden Keith. Though no Stephen is named, it seems that we only have a portion of this circuit court file. Perhaps you could locate additional affidavits in the complete file that might include the name of Stephen among the children of Nicodemus and Margaret. You also might wish to search for probate records related to the estate of Nicodemus Keith that might name Stephen among his heirs."
I appreciate a head's up if anyone knows of this kind of documentation as I wouldn't know where to start looking in my dad's papers and figure his information came from someone here or a partner involved in the editing of his Keith book.
