You mentioned that Susannah Thompson was a daughter of Greenberry (brother of Richard and James). Based on the 1850 Census, District 2, Wayne County, Kentucky, page 279, I have tentatively attributed the following children to Greenberry and Margaret "Peggy" Dodson Thompson: Sirena, b. ca 1837; Daniel, b. ca 1839, Martha, b. 1844-1845, and Elizabeth, b. ca 1848. According to "McCreary County Kentucky History and Families" by the McCreary County Historical and Genealogical Society on page 248, Greenberry and Margaret had a son George, who married Barbara Godsey. Based on the 1850 and 1860 censuses, George would have been born about 1820. Are Greenberry and Margaret the parents of the children on the 1850 census? Other than Susannah, do you know of any other children that I am missing?

Regarding Rev. John Keith born July 25, 1788 in Virginia, he had 2 wives and at least 16 children. I currently have 17 names. Children of John Keith and Polly Allen: Clayborn, 1814; Lavina Rebecca, 1816; Hiram, 1817. Children of John Keith and Delilah Canada: Oliver/Olive; Silas Ben; William Riley, 1822; Joshua, 1823; George Herman, 1825; Isabelle Abbie, 1825; Cyrenious, 1827; Clayton, 1828; Martha Ann, 1833; Nancy, 1835, Patty, 1836, Josiah, 1838; Latin Tate, 1840; and Jasper, 1842. Rev. John's sons, Hiram and Clayborn, also had daughters named Nancy. As you found on the census, Hiram Keith's daughter, Nancy, was born December 28, 1849. Clayborn Keith's daughter, Nancy, was born about 1839. The Cyrenius that you found on the 1860 census was Hiram's son, Cyrenius Waite Keith born February 13 or 14, 1841. Let me know if you have any Keith questions. I have access to the censuses, but thanks a lot for your offer and all your help.
