Hi Jonathan,

Here's the info that I have on John Keith. I would love to see what you have as well. John was my 5th G-Grandfather.

Generation 1

1.       Father of John Keith-1.

Father of John Keith and unknown spouse married. They had the following children:

i.       Samuel Keith was born in 1783 in MD. He died after 1810 in PA probably.

Notes for Samuel Keith:

He is possibly in Marion Twp., Jennings Co., IN in 1850 with a wife, Elizabeth, and 2 kids. His neice, Julia Ann, ended up in Jennings Co., IN--so this Sam in Jennings Co., may be the same one.

[This might be he{{PROBABLY NOT}}: (???) KEITH, Samuel A. - born 4 Jan. 1786 - died 19 Feb. 1862 (Husband to Isabel "Ibby" Keith) Notes: Samuel Adkins Keith born in Montgomery County, Maryland. Married Isabel Parks (daughter of James and Jane (BUCHANAN) Parks , Scott County KY on August 21, 1811, 2nd wife was to widow Mrs. Elizabeth (BUCKLES) Wilson on August 6, 1849 at Jennings County IN.]





       ii. Jacob Keith[1] was born in 1785 in Carroll Co., MD[1]. He died between 1850-1860 in Huntingdon Co., PA.

       iii. John Keith[2, 3] was born in 1788 in Baltimore, MD. He died on 04 Oct 1870 in Clay Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA.



Generation 2

2.       Jacob Keith-2 (Father of John-1)[1] was born in 1785 in Carroll Co., MD[1]. He died between 1850-1860 in Huntingdon Co., PA.

Notes for Jacob Keith:
A Jacob Keith was issued a Warrantee of Land in Huntingdon County for 400 Acres on July 23, 1812. In Warrior's Mark, which is right below Centre County. Don't think this is the right Jacob, as my Jacob lived in the southern twps. http://books.google.com/books?id=rUQOAAAAIAAJ&q=Keith#v=snippet&q=Keith&f=false

Notes for John Keith: "Nearly all the first settlers in Todd Township came here from Maryland. The country they traversed in their migrations hither was than an untamed wilderness, inhabited only by the wild Indians, and filled with the ferocious denizens of the forest. It is not possible now to learn the name of all these pioneers. Those who have no descendants here have mostly passed to oblivion, and those families that are still represented in the township, the name and generation of the pioneer here is in many cases forgotten.
