This Keith line begins with William Keith of Ireland. Two sons are known to him at this time; and so far only one (Nichodemus Keith) has been thoroughly researched. The line of this site comes through one of his sons – John Birden Keith.  Through this Keith line, some notable people can be traced, among which are singer\songwriter Willie Nelson and actress Lana Turner.  The two links will take you to their genealogies on this site.

William Keith was born probably between 1730 and 1739 in Ireland. It is unknown at this time who he married or when he died.

  1. I am descended through Eli Keith’s line [s/o Nichodemus and Margaret Borden]. My line is from me, Linda, d/o Lewis Wayne Williams and Juanice Sawyer; s/o Lewis Earl Williams and Alta Blanche Hightower; d/o William Flavius Josephus Hightower and Artemis Elizabeth Sofia Draper; s/o John Hightower and Nancy Casteel Meek KEITH, d/o Eli KEITH and Margaret BORDEN. I would love to hear from other Keith cousins who might be descended from Eli and especially his daughter, Nancy.
