Birth*12 October 1841 Speedwell, Claiborne County, Tennessee2 
Marriage* Principal=Eli KECK 
Death*24 March 1909 Tennessee3 
Burial* Pleasant Point Cemetery, Claiborne County, Tennessee4 
Note* BIO: Compiler found this couple on the 1870 census, living one household after Eli's father, Phillip KECK. Eli's wife is listed as 'Katha' or 'Katta', 26 years old, born in TN. There is a notation that she can neither read nor write; Eli is reported to be unable to write, also. Compiler had not found a record of this couple's marriage, so did not know 'Katha's' maiden name. Since they have a child in their household who is listed as '4' years of age, it is assumed that they probably married about 1865. On the 1880 census 'Katha' is enumerated as 'Catherine'. Again, her place of birth is listed as 'Tenn', as is her mother's; however her father is reported to have been born in NC. Discovery of the DUNN family on the WFT disk revealed Catherine's maiden name and her date and place of birth.
