I am researching

The Keefer Family from W.Va.& Bedford Co.Pa.

The Williams Family from W.Va.

The Burkett & Goble Families from Ky.

My father was Henry I. Keefer from Artie W.Va. He was born
5-8-1921 and died 12-10-89. He married my mom 7-20-1939 in Banner Ky.

My mother is Ruby Hazel Burkett born (6-12-1923) in Pike County Ky.

My father left the coal mines of W.Va. in 1960 with a wife,
8 children and 2 bulldogs. He then went to Charleston South Carolina and went to work for the government at the Polaris Missile Base.

My grandparents were:
Clarence Keefer born (11-24-1898 to 3-24-1983) in Milton W.Va.& Lula Williams born (2-04-1904 to 5-25-1956) they were married (7-5-1920) in Dorothy W.Va.

Everett Burkett born (10-17-1898 to 5-18-1939) in Auxier Ky.& Bessie Ann Goble born 9-11-1904 at Big Sandy River in Ky. they were married Dec.20,1920 in Ironton Ohio.

I have traced the Keefer line back to Daniel Keefer & Elizabeth from Bedford County Pa.

My dad had told me that originally there were 9 Keefer brothers who came to the United States from Germany and settled in Pennsylvania, Ohio & West Va.

I have traced the Williams line back to David "Lonesome Dave" Williams.

I have very little information on the Burkett & Goble Families.

All information on these families will be appreciated
