My great-great grandfather Archa Keele was married in Polk County, Missouri, by Rev. Peyton Keele. This leads me to believe that Peyton is related to Archa. Have you ever run across the name Archa in your research?

Archa came to Missouri from Tennessee,where he was born in 1832, in time to be in the 1850 census of Polk County with an older woman (his mother?) named Mary and his sister Rachel. They lived with the Joseph Cavin family. Joseph's wife was Hannah Keele Cavin.

I have been trying to find Archa's father for years, but he apparently died prior to 1850. Any information you might have would be appreciated.
