In Reply to: Re: WILLIAM DEAVER, father of THOMAS SHEPARD/SHEPHERD DEAVER, 1803, Haywood Co, NC by P A McConahy of 936

In my previous message I wrote;
May be a long shot, but this KEITH information has me wondering if Rubin Keith DEAVER is possibly the son of William John DEAVER b 1763, and one of the KEITH daughters.

Based on the method used by many families when naming their children; 1st son, mothers father, 2nd son named after fathers father. If this method was used, the above scenerio is very possible.

Unverified siblings of Rubin Keith DEAVER;
William H DEAVER b 30 Jun 1795, d 30 Dep 1873, m 22 Sep 1822
+m1 Elizabeth MACKEY m 22 Sep 1822 (3 children)
+m2 Elizabeth BUCHANAN (? children)
Samuel DEAVER b 08 Aug 1797
John DEAVER b 04 May 1798
+Mary PHILIPS (10 children)
Thomas Sheperd DEAVER b 23 Mar 1803, d 26 Feb 1898
+m1 Louarty KEITH m 18 Mar 1828 (11 children)
+m2 Janet RICE m abt 1878 (1 foster child)
Nancy Polly DEAVER b 1806
+ George Robinson m abt 1830
Rubin Keith DEAVER b 09 Jan 1811, d 21 Mar 1888
+m1 Lidia A THOMAS, b 27 Apr 1813, d 27 Oct 1870 m 1832 (12 children)
+m2 Susannah Catherine CHAPMAN, m abt 1870 (4 children)
John Harvey DEAVER b 1815, d 1864
+ Nancy Mary KEITH m abt 1835 (8 children)

Rubin Keith DEAVER

Rubin KEITH's siblings; (info from KEITH family website)
Samuel KEITH b 1758
William KEITH 1762/65-1838
John KEITH b 1764
Reuben KEITH b 1764-1854
James "Big Jim" KEITH b 1764
Joshua KEITH 1768-1835
daughter KEITH 1772
daughter KEITH 1778/80

Reuben KEITH m Elizabeth Runnion
together they had at least four children
William KEITH 1793-1854 b Madison Co., NC
John KEITH b Buncombe Co., NC
Louarty KEITH 1807-1876 near Mars Hill, NC
Thomas Sheperd KEITH b 1808 Buncombe Co., NC

I haven't figured it out yet, but there are too many same names in these families. There has got to be a relation somewhere prior to the marriage of Thomas Sheperd DEAVER and Luarte (Louarty) KEITH. As prior to their marriage in 1828, Rubin DEAVER, b 1811, already had the middle name of Kieth.

Can anyone help me clear up this mess?
