Florida War/Keith family
Do any of you out there know anything about the Florida War? Also, are
service records available from that war?
I just found the following book, "Index for Compiled Service Records,
Alabama Units, Florida War" 1971. It mentioned two Jackson County
residents of particular interest to me:
Keith, George W. Price Co. Cawlfield Battalion, rank private.
Keith, Griffin Co. L. Snodgrass Battalion, rank private.
I have every reason to believe that these men were brothers. Both were
born in Jackson County, GA. Their father George Keith, Sr. moved the
family to Jackson County, AL by 1830. Both brothers moved to Pope
County, IL about 1853, along with many, many others. Those surnames
include Carr, Dent, Spence, Hall, Keith, Chappell.
