Generation No. 3

WILLIAM ROSS KEITH was born Abt. 1872 in Texas, and died December 29, 1930 in Dallas County, TX. He was the son of William Birden Keith and Josephine Ellison. He married STELLA CLIFT. She died May 19, 1903.

Notes for WILLIAM ROSS KEITH:

I believe the 1910 census for Comanche County, TX, Comanche, ED #1, Page 6b, April 29, 1910 has some mistakes in it, but I’m not sure how the story plays out. I have no doubt that the Josephine Keith in household #129 is William Birden’s (son of John Jackson Keith) wife. But it lists Ola Clift as her daughter. Age is smudged but could be 30. Could William and Josephine have had another daughter in 1880? Possibly. If she married a Clift, he would probably have been a relative of Stella Clift Keith, the wife of another of William and Josephine’s children, William Ross Keith. But it lists Josephine’s granddaughter as Minnie (makes sense, since she would have been named after an aunt), but the next line lists Ralph as a son, age 7. That is clearly a mistake as Josephine would have been 56 and her husband dead when Ralph was born. So Ralph had to be Ola Clift’s son.
