For any of you out there researchsing the Keith
family, I can tell you a couple of things. The George
Keith who can be found in the 1830 Jackson County, AL
census living next to John Carr, was from VA and very
likely moved into Jackson County, AL from Jackson
County, GA. His wife had the maidens name of Gamble,
or Gambel or Gambol.
I still suspect that this Keith family is connected to
the Keith family which can be found in old Pendleton
District, SC. These Keiths did move into various
counties in GA such as Lincoln and Hall.
My reason for following this Keith family is that they
had connections with the Carr family and the Dent
family. Their connections began at least in Jackson
County, AL and continued into Pope County, IL.
This info is from the marriage record of his son
George W. Keith. His second marriage was recorded in
Johnson County, IL in 1880.
