    • Marjorie,

      My grandmother was Fostena Amanda Edora McKeithen Davis of Hineston, LA.

      We know very little of her family history and would greatly appreciate anything you could share with our family about the McKeithen family.

      It was just by chance I found your blog. I enjoyed reading the different stories, etc. and of course the info on Sarah Tarver.
