Jacqueline Lee Keith-Hepworth (aka Jackie) and her husband Kenneth Alfred Hepworth (aka Ken) are very much interested in Genealogy and work together as a team ... BUT each have their own FAG account.

Jackies surname interests are: Keith, Stanley, Tibbetts, Leavitt, Mullen, Rourke, Hanson and Eames.

Kens surname interests are: Hepworth, Morrison, Buck, Tootell, Armitage, Cookson and Bailey.

Jackie was born, in Malden MA. Until the age of 15 she lived in the MA towns of Medford, Stoneham and North Reading. At the age of 15 she moved to Derry NH. She married her high school sweetheart Ken in Derry. During her husbands 5 year job assignment in New Jersey she had 2 children. When the children were 2 and 3 she and Ken moved back to Derry where she currently lives.

Jackie has an extremely good childhood memory of many of the Keith stories that have been passed down to her ...eg. The Scottish Keith Castle (Dunnottar) and the 1st Keith who carried her Keith line from Scotland to Massachusetts in the 1600s.

In the USA, Jackie with much confidence, has traced her Keith ancestry back to her 7th Great Grandfather Rev. James Keith of West Bridgewater MA. With slightly less confidence , starting with her 8th Great Grandfather Robert Alexander Keith , she has traced her Scottish Keith ancestry back to her 22nd Great Grandfather in 980AD ...

Jackie looks forward to revisiting both England and Scotland .. and in particular visiting Dunnottar Castle in Scotland.
