According to "Our Families" by Larry G. Shuck lists Jacob Keister as the son of Frederick Keister,Jr and Ann E. PROPST.Shuck says it is not proven but appears to be the Jacob who moved to Sevier Co., Ark.
Frederick Keister,Jr was the son of Frederick Keister and Hannah Dyer. They lived at what is now Brandywine, Pendleton Co. WV. Their farm is now the village. There is a family cemetary with readable names on toombstones on private land at Brandywine.
Brandywine is about 30 miles west of Harrisburg, VA.
Hope this helps.
