Notes

  • In the 1880 census, Samuel M Keith is reported as 3 years old.  Thiswould mean he was born in 1876 or 1877.  One Keith genealogy reportshis birthday as June 1877.  Steve Miller reports it as the exact dateof 12 Mar 1877.  The 1900 census reports him born in January 1879, andhis age is consistent with that at 21.  I will report the birth as theexact date given by Miller in his Keith genealogy.

    Steve Miller reports his middle name as Miller, while I found that onhis memorial on Find a Grave it is Monroe.

    By 1900, Sam's father John had moved his family to Chattanooga,Tennessee, and Sam is working as a Store Clerk.

    Samuel and his new wife Launah Campbell are reported in the Charlotte,North Caroilna, City Directory in several issues before 1910.  Theentry for Mary Keith indicates she is the widow of Thomas Keith.  Theyounger Margaret looks like the cousin Maggie who was reported in JohnB and Mary Constance's household in the 1900 census.  But if so, shewould be only about 15.  I don't know what the age threshhold wouldhave been for listing in the directory.  But since she was working ata job, at whatever age, that may not be a problem, factor.  No agesare reported in these city directories.
