Thanks for your reply.The following might or might not be of interest. This is a reply to another distant relative:
Who are you? I'll tell you who you are, your great grandfather was Richard Keach of Henderson, KY. He happens to be my wife's great grandfather too!
However, I have some good news and some bad news.
Grace Keach Born 1864, Died 1890 Married J. E. Farley
Her Father was Richard Keach Born August 14, 1815, Died August 2, 1892. Richard Married twice. His first marrage was to Elizabeth Freels in April 15 1838 their children (I don't have all the death dates, so if they are missing you will know,)
Susan Cummings B: 1849 Virginian Cummings B: 1847
and Sara E. Cummings B: 1862 D: 1942
Richard's Second wife was Sara J. (Cummings) Long
Married October 31, 1850. Their children were:
Ovid Keach (My wife's Grandfather,) B: May 10, 1858 and Died April 29, 1933. His son Carl Wentworth Keach is my wife's father. Ovid moved to Hopkinsville, KY.
Albert B: 1844
John B: 1860 D: 1885
Kencheon B: 1867 D: Sept. 19, 1916
Ellie C. B: 1868
Sara (Sally) B: 1862 D: 1959
James W. B: 1857 D: 1907
Other possible children:
Richard B: 1855 Jane B: 1858 Issac B: 1864
Richard named his son Ovid after an Uncle Ovid that raised him. This early Ovid migrated to Kentucky from St. Michaels, Talbot County Maryland before age 21.
Richard's parents, we have no clue as to who they were.
We have searched and searched without any luck. The only thing we found was a rumor that his father married a Iroquois squaw.
Hope to hear more from you!!!
Life is great when you have friends!

Subject: Keach in Kentucky
I would be interested in exchanging information about the Kentucky Keach information that you have. I have very limited information on my paternal side of the family which includes Keach families from Western KY .... Henderson county especially and possibly Webster county also.
I have had a very difficult time following this line in my tree. If I remember correctly the Keach in my tree married a Farley grandfather of some generations back.
Sorry to be so lost about this branch but my main computer went down a few years ago so all I have now are paper trails of the family and they are boxed up due to construction.
Any help greatly appreciated,
