    • === Research notes from Gail Fleischaker

      After Keith's death (c. 1752), John Neavill brought several nuisance suits against Mary Isham so we have several dated documentation of her live presence. Thomas Keith was charged for her care and support in Leeds Parish on August 22, 1772, when she would have been 54 years old. The Leeds Parish property was divided among three of Keith's five son (Thomas, Isham, and Alexander) in 1778 and that date is taken as the year of Mary Isham's death (she would have been 60 years old). Because there is no record of Keith's will, it is possible that the terms of the will stipulated the land's division upon Mary's Death, 'though we have no way of knowing that. Nor can we know if the will granted land only to the three youngest sons or if there was some stipulation as to the two eldest (James, Jr and John) being included if they were not already well positioned elsewhere. James Jr would already have been well established as a lawyer in Frederick County. I didn't have the time/energy to track down John's history for the period. tangential to my main purpose, but his whereabouts at that time would make an interesting pursuit.




      Also take note of the fact that Mary Isham Randolph Keith is a 2nd cousin to
      President Thomas Jefferson. Thomas' father, Peter Jefferson b.1708 had a sister,
      Martha Jefferson b.1710 (not shown below). In 1740 Martha m. Bennet Goode b.1710.
      Their daughter, Lucy Anne Goode b. 1760 m. William Marshall b.1757 of Mecklenburg
      County, Virginia. His grandparents were Alexander Marshall and Elizabeth Worsham of
      Henrico and Chesterfield County, Virginia. Although I suspect the Mecklenburg/Henrico
      Marshalls and the Henry County Marshalls are related somehow, the above mentioned
      marriage does tie them together.
