I am still searching for information on the parents of Martin ( Could be Mortin, Morton, Marlin or Marvin ) Keith, born in 1838 or 1839 and died in 1869. Noble County, Ohio Probate Records indicate a marriage application dated 1858 to a Maragret Sparrowgrove. Later records indicate a marriage request to a Rhoda A. Carnes dated 1868 (after Martin's death in 1869 Rhoda A. Carnes, Keith married a John Longfellow ). One of Martin's relationships/marriages resulted in a son, Wesley " Elmer " Keith, my great grandfather. Wesley " Elmer " was born in 1861 and died in 1929. My research indicates he lived much of his life in South Olive, Noble County, Ohio and is buried there. Wesley " Elmer " married a Rebecca Kirkbride, Crosson. I have looked at all of the Keith Families that lived in this area during this period of time. Those records suggest that Martin may have descended from the Lewis or Phillip Keith line but I have not been able to find any documented proof of this. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
