Looking for parents of Charlotte (UNKNOWN) Keach and Almira (BRIGGS) Keach

I know that this board has been very quiet for a long time, but I felt an urge to post this, so I hope there are still a few Keaches out there that look in from time to time.......

I have the book, " East Greenwich, Rhode Island
Historical Cemetery Inscriptions" by Bruce Campbell MacGunnigle and in it he states that "Almira (Briggs) Keach, wife of George W. d. 6 Mar 1832 AE 44y". She is in Historcial Cemetery number 38, Section L, number 15. Interestingly enough George Keach is not buried there, however, Charlotte (Unknown) Keach is buried at location 38-L-10, 5 spaces away from Almira.Charlotte was "wife of George, d. 13 March 1849 in 67th year"

I would very much like to learn more about the mother and wife of George Keach, like their fathers and mothers - who were they? Where did they come from? Why were they buried in East Greenwich when George was buried elsewhere? Writings for Rhode Island in the time period (1770-99) is scarce and the Keaches are known to be reclusive in searches. If anyone knows anything please email me. Thank you : )
