I am researching the Keys/Riley families in Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Oklahoma. I am always interested in any information regarding these families. I am focusing my search, at this time, on two particular individuals...
First, I am interested in Samuel Keys Sr., who was born ca.1763 and died in Jackson County, Alabama ca.1838. I am curious about his parentage and spouse, and have not yet found any proven evidence of either.

Secondly, I am focusing my attention on the wife of John Adam Keys. Minnie Belle Zora Elizabeth Anne Roach (dob 31 Aug 1881)was the daughter of Joe Roach and Nancy Alice Cooper. This family has also been elusive for me.

I am always willing to share any of my information, and look forward to hearing from you with additions or corrections.

Happy Hunting!
