Dear Jennifer: Sorry to be so late in getting back to you--haven't been on the net in a while, so I just got your message.
You are right about the Keeths--they are so cussedly difficult. How can this be when they spell their name like that? Surely they are all related to each other...
Anyway, I do have a list of Sylvester's siblings which another Keeth cousin sent to me. If she is right, Monroe and Sylvester are the children of Asa Keeth and Marian Iris Stuckey--the family definitely lived in Mississippi--in Amite County, Lauderdale County, and Attala County, that I know of.
This is the list of their children, as it was given to me:
Martha Keeth (b. around 1842)
Mary Keeth (b. around 1843)
Cynthia Keeth (b. ca 1844)
Sylvester Keeth (b. ca. 1848)
Monroe Keeth (b. ca. 1851)
Carole Keeth (b. 1854)
Richard Keeth (b. 1856)
There is so much I'd like to know about this family. Please write and tell me any or everything you know. My E-mail is Shirley@EAL.net
. Or you can answer me on the 'net. I'd like to know if Sylvester had another name--like James Sylvester or Sylvester Joseph..or whatever. I have a feeling I'm missing things about him because I do now know his full name.
Let's correspond--maybe we can learn some things about the Keeth women--a group that has utterly eluded me.
