      Hi Cousin Bob!
      Wow! I have met several cousins since I began searching on line!! It's great!  I would love to share information with you regarding Rev. James Keith. He is my fifth Great Grandfather.
      I recently toured Scotland and visited Dunnottar Castle; the church where many of the Keiths are buried; the church where the Crown Jewels were stashed under the floor boards for 11 years; and the Marishal College building which is presently being renovated for the new City Hall (they are preserving the facade and updating the interior).  I even picked up a piece of Keith Tartan while I was there.  It was amazing being in those places, however they revealed nothing new about the Rev.

      Greetings Dale,

      I also descend from Rev. James Keith of Peterhead, my 6th great-grandfather. A few years ago I posted to this group a couple of times, but you are the only connection I've made. I hope we can help each other.

      There is a great deal of information about the Clan Keith, but little about James. Over the years I've rooted out some from secondary sources, but there seems to be a lack of records about his ancestry. One writer states that James was the son of George Keith, a professor at Marischal College in Aberdeen, where James was a divinity student.

      I've compiled a two page story with footnotes about him, mostly about his marriage and time in Virginia. I can e-mail it to you so you will know what I have, then you can let me know anything more or different that you have. If this works for you, let me know.

      Your Cousin, Bob Prewitt

      My Scottish Ancestor is Rev. James Keith b.1696 in Peterhead; emigrated to America (Virginia) in 1727; returned to England to be ordained and became rector at Henrico Parish Church in 1729; married Mary Isham Randolph in 1733.
      I am able to trace everything forward but would like to fill the gaps prior to James' immigration to America.
      I am searching for James' parents, siblings, etc. Very little info so far. Please help!
      Thank you for any leads you may be able to provide.
