It is believed that this line begins with a George Keith (b.ca 1626)who arrived in America in 1666. He received 50 acres for the service of his wife, Dorothy(who was just then released from indenture to Luke GARDINER), and lived in St. Marry's, Calvert, and Charles Co.MD. In 1721, a Geo Keith, presumably the one under discussion, gave in deposition that he was then 96 years old. It is purported that he lived to age 111.

Galphin-3 and Keith-3234 do not represent the same person because: These individuals are different because they have different wives and children. Keith-3234 is listed in the Families of Baltimore Maryland. Daughter Margery Keith was the third wife of Joseph Howard (Howard-296) and mother of Cornelius Howard (Howard-1292).
