Have been noticing that you do look-ups; it's not so much a look up as it is
wondering if there is more info on Robert KEYES (1633 era) that I might not
have any historical data in other words. I am related to Robert KEYES of
Watertown, MASS and Solomon KEYES of Newbury, MASS (same era) (unless I have
the names turned around).
We do believe that Solomon is the son of Robert KEYES by the way.
Anyway just curious. If not, do not worry about it; I do have my connection
and that is the main thing. But anything of historical info is always welcome
as you know.
Thanks for helping us all out.
