In the process of reviewing my reseach material I am reminded of the Keith, Kunes, Carnes, and Kirkbride connection. The 1870 Census for Olive Twp., Noble County, Ohio indicates these families either lived together or next door to each other. Elmer Keith age 8, who is my great grandfather, lived with the family of David Kunes age 38, Elisabeth , age 28, Sarah age 8. McClellan age 5, Margaret age 1, Elmer Keith age 8, Isabel Carnes age 17, and Rhoda Keith age 25. Next door is the William Kirkbride age 61 Family, Dudley age 30, Dennis Gibbs age 18, Delia age 17, Emma age 11, and Rebecca age 9. Rebecca Kirkbride is my G Grandmother. The obituary of Elmer Keith indicates his father was Morton Keith and his mother was Rhoda Keith. I have assumed the obituary parent information is accurate but I have my doubts since I have been unable to locate further information on Morton or Martin Keith. Your thoughts or opinion would be welcome.
