Pat, I think part of the problem might be in the born around 1817.My Stephen had to be born around 1807/1808 according to the Census that I have read.Also, his first marriage was 1828.Too young, being born 1817.I copied your entire part on Kee,Kay,Keys,Keyes.It has really the same information that I had pretty much given Michael, toward the end.Around 10 years or so ago, I went to Frankfurt, Ky to the archive center there and copies everything in the file that had the names above in it.It does have a lot of what you had posted.One of the people mentioned someone having a Steven.I did not do a good job of sometimes even getting names of the person who gave the info,some does.I don't know what good it would have did me without backup.I had such a short time there and was hurrying to get what I could on as many families as I could.But, I dug it out and thought if I see any names I could tell people what I did have.My Stephen's middle initial was W.which makes me think that might have been William? It's highly likely they are all connected.I have no doubt mine came from Ireland and possibily during the potato famine, or around that time.As with most families they caught what ever ship they could get one coming to America and just came into different ports and went all over.
