Are there any PHELPS descendants out there who descend from Keziah Phelps mentioned (below) in a newspaper article?
From: The Prospect, Doniphan, Mo, Vol. III, No. 27, 1874
1874 - Perhaps the oldest woman in the State of Missouri, and possibly the oldest west of the Mississippi river, lives at the mouth of Terrible Creek, in this county. Mrs. Keziah Phelps was born in Buckingham County, Va., February 20, 1771, as shown by her father's Bible; thus it seems she will soon be 104 years old. Her maiden name was Still. She has lived at her present home for twenty-three years past, and during that time has never been more than ten miles from home.
She is remarkably sprightly for one so old, and her recollection of scenes long since gone is striking. With the exception of stooping, her form is far better than many younger women. She speaks of her present life as only waiting for a call up.
