Surnames: KEITH LAWRENCE
Submitter: Judy Wills ([email protected])

KEITH and LAWRENCE families (1811 - 1900. Census data for 1850-1870 shows an enclave of Keith and Lawrence families living near Eddysville (Stonefort) area of Pope Co. My great grandfather was William W. Keith, b. 1855 in Alabama. His wife was Ester Lawrence, b. 1857. I am assuming that Ester was Martha E. Lawrence, daughter of Thomas H. and Nancy T. Lawrence. (They lived only ten houses away from William's parents in Eddysville.) William's father was George W. KEITH, b. 1811 in Tennessee or Georgia. Williams's mother was Melinda Q. (maiden name unknown), b. 1822 in Alabama. The family migrated to Pope Co. from Alabama in the late 1850's but before the 1860 Census. William's siblings were Conzada, John A., Francis M., Nancy L. all born in Alabama. William was the youngest. (Martha) Ester LAWRENCE's parents migrated to Pope Co. from Kentucky in 1851. Her siblings were Henry, Malinda, George and William. Her father (Thomas H.Lawrence) apparently remarried after 1850 to Mary Q. (maiden name unknown). There are three more children, Margaret, Eveline and Susana. I am looking for any information which may help me identify George W. Keith's parents in Tennessee or Georgia as well as Thomas H. Lawrence's parents in Kentucky. I would love to meet other researchers following this line to share information. Judy Wills [email protected]

Surnames: KEITH LAWRENCE POWELL
Submitter: Judy Wills ([email protected])
Date: 02 Sep 1998

This is an update to my July 20, 1998 query. My grandfather was William W. KEITH, b. in Alabama around 1855. His father George W. KEITH was born around 1811 in either Tennessee or Georgia. George W. KEITH migrated with his family shortly after William was born to the Eddysville/Stonefort area after 1855 but before 1860 where the family is listed in the 1860 Census. It is possible they were joining up with a relative, Griffin KEITH, who apparently migrated to the area first. My g. grandfather William KEITH married a Ester or Hester LAWRENCE from the Stonefort area. In the 1860 Census and the 1870 Census, there is a Thomas H. LAWRENCE family who apparently migrated to the Stonefort/Eddysville area from Kentucky around 1851. I suspect this is the family my g. grandmother comes from. Perhaps Martha E. LAWRENCE, b. 1856 is Martha Ester. The birth dates for her from my grandmother's birtcertificate are close (around 1857). In reference to my original submission, my grandfather Ransom Powell was apparently born in Carbondale, Illinois. I will therefore pursue that line through Williamson County. Any information about my KEITH or LAWRENCE family lines would sure be appreciated. There are loads of information about the early KEITH family in American if I can just make the connection.

Trying to find information about my grandparents.

My grandmother married Ransom POWELL in St. Clair County on April 15, 1902. From the 1910 Census, my grandparents were living in Golconda in 1910. Thus, there is at least a 32 year tie to Golconda at the turn of the century. Any information about the KEITH or POWELL families would be appreciated. Other names that I am aware of are my grandmother's sisters, Hortense and Temperance KEITH. I believe Temperance must be buried in Golconda, as she died as a young girl. I do not know the names of my great grandparents KEITH and do not know if the POWELL family was from Golconda. Just in case, my grandfather's brother's names were Sherman and Frank POWELL. There was also a sister named Kate or Katherine. I am just getting started and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou.

Submitter: Kevin Ladd ([email protected])
Date: 08 Jun 1998

Hello, I am trying to contact anyone from Pope County connected to these folks. James Thompson married there on 22 June 1826 to Elizabeth McRorey. After his death, she was married 24 March 1836 there to Richard M. Robinson. I am not sure if these are my ancestors, but they sure fit in with family legends. All I have is a list of six children born to a Mr. and Mrs. Robinson, and this Mrs. Robinson was previously married to a Mr. Thompson. No other marriage records from Pope County fit. I am descended from the youngest of six Robinson children----John Ervin Robinson who was born 14 March 1848 in Pope County, according to an old family bible record. I cannot find these folks on the 1850 or 1860 census of Pope County. I feel sure the family was still there because John and his brother James enlisted from Massac County during the Civil War. Anyone who can help me figure out this would be my friend for life. Here are the names of the six Robinson children I have: Margaret M., born 1838, who married a man named Scott; Sarah E., born 1839, who married a Waters; Mary Ellen, born 1842, who married Noah West; Ann Eliza, born 1844, who married Jasper Morris; James Rudolphus (he later changed his middle name to Monroe), born 1846, and married in Chambers County, TX to Martha Emily Clark; and then my great-great- grandfather, John Ervin, born 1848, who married in Chambers County, Texas to Mary Jane Cooper. These six Robinson children were supposed to have had two Thompson half-brothers, although the names are not known.
