Thank you Max and Mary for your help in my study.

William "Wild Bill" Keyser is my ancestor by way of John Jack his son, settling close to the mouth of the Big Sandy in Cabell Co. c. 1800.

While I would love to include Slammin Sammy Snead in my tree, descendant of Richard Snead b c 1765, I am in agreement with your discussions and research and find nothing that would identify Keziah wife of William as Richard's sister or even identify Keziah as a Snead. (her parents unknown).

Considering the close relationship between the Keysers and the Sneads in Hancock and Bath County, I believe if any such relationship described above was so, it would be well known. It appears they were nieghbors going west together. Considering that, I find it a little rare that their children never married each other, but that is probably just the way things are.

Thanks again for your help.
