I have researched my family tree back to the Mt Hope plantation (just outside of Kingstree, SC) near Greeleyville. My dad is Inglis McQueen Keels Jr. His dad was Inglis McQueen Keels Sr. his dad was Thoedore McFadden Keels (was born on Plantation) and he faught in the Civil War. His dad was James Withers Keels - Born Sept 20, 1796 on Mt Hope Plantation. He died on December 16, 1865. His grave is just outside of Greeleyville. His dad was John Keels who died on Oct 28, 1820 and his grave is on the plantation. I do not know when or where he was born. I do know that his had a daughter Mary Maria Keels who married a A.C. McKnight and she died on Feb 18, 1885. He also had 4 sons 1. Robert Francis Keels Died Aug 28, 1837. 2. James Withers Keels (my great-great grandfather)3. Richard W.T. Keels was born in Georgetown, SC 1781. 4. Captain Peter R. Keels also born in Georgetown. My great-great-great grandfather, John Keels was married to a lady with the first name of Mary she died on May 11, 1825 and is buried next to John on the plantation. I also have a land grant for the King of England that grants 400 acres in Williamsburgh Townsship on the North side of the Black River on the 10th of November 1761. I also have evidence that a John Keels faught in the battle of Fort Multree (sp???)His name is on statue in Charleston, SC he died of wounds in revolutionary war in 1789 and was married to Elizabeth Frierson. (This is a different John Keels) maybe father of the John Keels that died in Mt Hope Plantation outside of Greeleyville. If you have read this entire text, it must have stimulated some interest. I don't know if anyone out there can help me go further. If you can or if you have questions ---- please E-Mail me. Thanks Carl Keels
