Re: Alexander Keith - Shrowsbury in Baltimore MD

In Reply to: Alexander Keith - Shrowsbury in Baltimore MD by John Maestri of 8591

The book "KEITH Collected Genealogies of KEITH, KEATH & KEETH Families in North America" page 239, says that Alexander(Jr)'s, (b ca 1712) son William Farfar Keith sold "Shrosbury and Dear Bitt" in 1789. This confuses the beliefs that:
1 The two boys John and Alexander were left penniless because of the misshandling of their estate. They had these properties left.
2 That William Farfar's uncle John had sold "Shrowsbury" (Shrosbury ?) before moving to Virginia (WV) in ca 1750.
I only bring this up to because John Maestri was asking about records, I assume that he meant official (as in governmental) records which are rare for this time. I think "The Keith book" mentioned above is by far the best source of information but you will eventually have to make your own value judgements about a lot of information
