Families of the Children of Hannah4 Washburn and Ensign John2 Keith

 

 

         The families of the children of Hannah Washburn and John Keith of Bridgewater, presented here, should be fairly complete, with a few exceptions. The families of the two daughters of Susanna Keith and Rev. Ebenezer Hines are incomplete, and some of the children of Zephaniah Keith and Mary Hooper, and of Capt. Joseph Keith and Chloe Packard are not fully traced. The family of the one daughter of Mary Keith and Solomon Pratt will be listed under her husband’s family in a later chapter, since he was also a Washburn descendant. Other than that, and a granddaughter of Daniel Keith who married Daniel7 Washburn, the descendants of Hannah (Washburn) Keith will not be carried forward further than this file.

His grandfather, John Keith, Gentleman, was appointed as his guardian on 4 Apr. 1748,[10] and he named as executor of his grandfather’s will in 1761.[11] He was probably the David Keith who married 1.)

They were living in Westmoreland, NH, in the 1800 federal census.[504] Two Isaac Halls were living in Cheshire Co., NH, in the 1810 federal census; they may have been the one in Chesterfield, NH in that year,[505] and they were probably still living in Chesterfield in the 1820,[506] and 1830 federal censuses,[507] where he was a farmer. He supposedly died on 30 June 1836 in Westmoreland, Cheshire Co., NH,[508] and she was probably living with the family of their son, Elihu Hall, in the 1840 federal census in Chesterfield, NH.

Elisabeth Conant, daughter of Nathaniel and Elisabeth (Haines) Conant (Jr.),[554] on 14 June 1744 in Bridgewater.[555] She was born on 25 Dec. 1727 in Bridgewater,[556] a granddaughter of Nathaniel and Hannah (Mansfield) Conant.[557] She died on 24 Feb. 1756 in Bridgewater,[558] and he remarried to 2.)

         Lydia (Hayward) (Keyzer) Keith died in 1762,[563] and Daniel Keith was living in Bridgewater, MA, in the 1790 federal census, next door to his sons Jeremiah and Salmon Keith,[564] and was still living in Bridgewater in the 1800 federal census.[565] He died on 28 Apr. 1803 in Bridgewater, aged 77 years,[566] but no probate records were filed for his estate in Plymouth County.

         Daniel Keith had 4 children by Elisabeth Conant, and 3 more children by Lydia (Hayward) Keyzer:

        1338     i   Isaiah4 Keith, born on 22 Mar. 1745/6 in Bridgewater,[567] married Sarah Burr, daughter of John and Sarah (Turner) Burr (Jr.),[568] on 13 Oct. 1767 in Bridgewater,[569] and they lived in Middleborough. She was born on 28 Sept. 1746 in Bridgewater,[570] a granddaughter of John and Mary (Lazell) Burr, of Hingham, MA.[571] He died intestate on 26 Aug. 1775 in the Revolutionary War, where he served as a private from Middleborough in Capt. Amos Wade’s Company,[572] and his uncle, Capt. Joseph Keith “3d” was granted administration of his estate, which was insolvent. His inventory was appraised on 13 Nov. 1775 by Zadock Leonard, Abner Kingman, and Theophilus Crooker, and totaled only £40.12.1, which included a small house valued at only £6, but no land. Joseph Keith “the third” made oath to the inventory on 4 Dec. 1775, and petitioned the court that the estate is “Greatly Insolvent.” Debts owed amounted to £69.7.11, and collections received added another £50.8.6 to the value of his estate. His widow received a small portion, including half of the house and few personal items, the accounting included “Cash paid for Nursing the Widow,” and after probate costs were deducted there was only £54.5.1 to satisfy the claims of the creditors.[573] There is no mention of children in the probate proceedings, but two sons are identified in a Revolutionary War Pension Application filed by a grandson in 1849. Sarah (Burr) Keith possibly remarried to Francis Keen (Jr.), son of Francis and Margaret (Hunt) Keen, of Pembroke,[574] on 2 Oct. 1781 in Middleborough.[575] He was born on 20 June 1740 in Pembroke.[576] No death or probate records were found for Francis Keen in Plymouth County, and he was not a head of household in Massachusetts or Maine in the 1790 federal census, but an Eleazer and an Elisha Keen were residents of Greene, ME, in the 1790 and 1800 federal censuses.[577] She supposedly died on 7 Oct. 1836 in Greene, Kennebec Co., ME.[578] Isaiah Keith supposedly had 2 sons:[579]

a. Isaiah5 Keith (Jr.), born say ca. 1771 in MA, died before 1849, leaving descendants.[580] He was probably the Isaih Keith living in Livermore, Cumberland Co., ME, in the 1800 federal census,[581] but he was not found in Livermore, ME, in the 1810 federal census. He may have been the Isaiah Keith living in Knox, Hancock Co., ME, in the 1820 federal census,[582] and in Knox, Waldo Co., ME, in the 1830 federal census,[583] however an older Isaiah Keith was living in nearby Thorndike, Waldo Co., ME, in the 1830 and 1840 federal censuses, who may have been the father of the Isaiah Keith of Knox, ME.

b. Ebenezer5 Keith, born say ca. 1773 in MA, married Bethiah (___), and settled in ME. She was born ca. 1777 in ME.[584] He was living in Livermore, Oxford Co., ME, in the 1820 federal census, where he was a farmer,[585] and in the 1830 federal census.[586] He died before 1849, and she was living with the family of her son Martin C.

They were living in Buckland, Hampshire (now Franklin) Co., MA, in the 1790 federal census,[1278] but they were probably back living in Middleborough, MA, in the 1800,[1279] 1810,[1280] and 1820 federal censuses, where he was a farmer,[1281] and the 1830 federal census.[1282] He died on 25 Nov. 1839, aged 81 years, and was buried in Middleborough, MA,[1283] but no probate records were found for him in Plymouth County.
