I am searching for the parents of Martin G. Keith, my GG Grandfather, who was born abt. 1838 and died in 1869 of TB in Noble County, Ohio. The first documented record of Martin G. Keith is dated 1858 in the form of a Noble County, Ohio marriage record to a Margaret Sparrowgrove. A marriage record dated 1868 indicates Martin G. Keith married a Rhoda Carnes, also in Noble County, Ohio. A ledger entry I found in Probate indicates Martin Keith died in 1869 of TB at the age of 30. My G Grandparents were Wesley Elmer Keith and Rebecca Kirkbride, Crossan. My research indicates they lived in South Olive, and I did find their graves in the South Olive Cemetery. My Grandfather was Glenn Clifford Keith ( 1899 - 1969 ) from South Olive. I have searched land, probate and census records and found many different Keith Families but I am unable to connect Martin G. Keith to any of those recorded Keith Families. I suspect his biological parents may have died when he was an infant and he was raised by in laws, an aunt or uncle or a kind neighbor with a surname other than Keith. I have spent 3 years trying to locate Martin G. Keith's parents. Is this something you could help me with ? Please let me know if there is a cost associated request.

P.S. If you are able to provide me with documented proof of his parents I would be happy to make a nice donation to the Noble County Genealogy Society.
