I've also been researching Samuel Keesler, born 1825 in Stony Point. My data indicates he was married to Sarah Briggs (born 1830). They are my ggg-grandparents. I've seen a number of people have ascribed the name Carrigan to Sarah, but I can't find any supporting info. Can you share where that info comes from? Samuel and Sarah had 4 children - Sibra, Warren, Lavina, and Horace before Samuels death in 1856. They children were split up, with Horace going to live with the Briggs. So it makes me wonder what happened to Sarah. I have some documents that show Samuel's Sarah as being a Briggs and would be happy to share them with you. Warm Regards, Sandra
