Keeton/Keaton - also found as Keton - Ceaton - Caeton - Seaton -
Records compiled by June Bork <www.junebaldwinbork.com>

The following records were researched to find why the Keetons of Wayne
County, Kentucky lived near and married into the Burnett family. Some of
the Wayne County Keetons may be from Albemarle/Amherst Co, VA. I hope these
records will be of help to other Keeton researchers.
