I am looking for information on this Keele family. I would also like to discover the name of the Wierman that married Jacob Keele (James' father). I am a descendent through James' son Richard. Any information about Richard's wife Harriet Sharpe would also be wonderful! If anyone connects to this line and would like to share information please email me at .
