Joseph and Mary Keyes

Query posted October 18, 2005

I'm looking for information on Joseph and Mary Keyes. He was a physician-farmer who, according to the census was born in Missouri in 1833.  I am also looking for descendants of the servant who lived with him by the name of  Lettie Keyes.  Her children were Amos Keyes, Susan Keyes, Nora Keyes, Sallie Keyes, James Keyes, and another whose name I cannot currently recall. On Sallie Keyes (Mathews) death certificate, she listed Joseph Keyes as her father. Sallie's daughter, Etta Mae (currently 102) never really got to know her mother because Sallie died when she was quite young. SHe desparately wants to try to find out about her mother's family and to know if she has any relatives still in the area. If any information can be shared regarding these individuals, please share them with me. Mae is now on her death bed and wishes to know something before she goes. Thank you.
