Keen/Murray/Thomas/Witt/Jackson/Lamar/Stein or Stine/Parnell
Hello! I noticed you commented on several of my family members Find a Grave pages. My great grandparents were: Elza Leo Witt (he went by Leo) and Edna (Keen-seen it spelled Keene).
Elza/Leo Witt's parents were: Jacob Greene Witt (people called him/he went by Jake) and Laura Belle (Coble)Witt (people called her/she went by Bell or Belle). Jacob/Jake G. Witt's parents (they had him out of wedlock-Not sure if they ever married or not) were: Jacob Greene Killingsworth and Sarah J. Witt (again don't know if this is married name or married name). Jacob G. Killingsworth's parents were: (I believe) Robert and Louisiana (Perryman) Killingsworth (Robert married a second time to a Sophrona (Witt) Huff Killingsworth. I don't know Laura Belle (Coble) Witt's parents were, or anything else on Sarah J. Witt.
Edna (Keen or Keene depending on which side of family it is-family story is there is/was a feud on the spelling) Witt's parents were: Thomas Wilburn Keen and Alice Mae (Jackson) Keen (on her death certificate it's spelled Keene). Thomas W. Keen's parents were: Joseph Murray Keen and Suzan (Lamar) Keen. Joseph M.'s parents were: John and Elizabeth (Murray) Keen. I don't know who John Keen's parents were.
Alice Mae (Jackson) Keen's parents were: John Harrison Jackson and Laura Susan (Parnell) Jackson. John Harrison Jackson's parents were: George Jackson and Roxy (Stein/Stine) Jackson. George Jackson's parents were: John George Jackson and Cathrina (Lamar) Jackson. I don't know who Roxy (Stein/Stine) Jackson's parents were.Laura Susan (Parnell) Jackson's parents were: Thomas Vedan Parnell and Mary Eliza (Neeley) Parnell. I don't know who Thomas Vedan Parnell or Mary Eliza (Neeley) Parnell's parents were.
Suzan (Lamar) Keen's parents were: Matthew Lamar and Charity (Witt) Lamar Breshears (Charity remarried after Matthew died). That's all I know about this family.
Elizabeth (Murray) Keen's parents were: David Murray, Sr. and Sarah (Thomas) Murray. David Murray, Sr's parents were: Othniel (some people spell it Otheniel) Daniel Murray and Katherine (Catherine-don't know if this is her maiden name or just another way to spell her first name) Murray. I don't know who Sarah (Thomas) Murray, Katherine Murray, or Othniel Murray's parents were (I don't know any of who their parents were).
Again, I noticed you posted stuff on some of these that I listed, and I was wondering if you would be willing to help. I doubt if you can help with the Elza Leo Witt's side, but hope you can with the rest.
My email address is tbutler024@mail.northark.edu, you can email anytime/when you have time to help. I have several questions and would rather ask them through email than on here.
Thanks,
Tiffany Butler

Keen/Jackson/Lamar/Witt/
Hello,

I was wondering how you are connected to these lines? I am descended from Tom and Alice Jackson Keen. I see that you maintain Joseph Murray Keen's memorial, so I thought you might be connected.

Thanks,

Jennifer

RE: Memorial #72069126
Thank you--I see a lot of people have also listed William as a son of Leo and Julia, but I can't yet find any evidence for that. I'll keep on the hunt.

I appreciate your response.

Memorial #72069126
Hello, I am trying to find evidence that this person was the son of Leon Twyman and Julie Ann Paine. Can you tell me how you know his middle name was "Paine"? I would appreciate any tips.

Hi Karen,

Our families connect through Edmund Witt & Sarah Cook. I've been adding some of your family to my tree and have come across pictures & notes you have shared on Find A Grave (thank you!). May I please use the photos you have shared on my Ancestry.com tree and in my personal files?

Concerning the children, I can list them, but I cannot add them since I did not create their memorials. The person that created their memorial would have to add the parents.
