Several years ago I was in contact with Robert Keith of Saskatchewan, Canada. I believe that he is now deceased. Below is an email I received from him that outlines his Keith family:

RE: I have a Flora Brown b 1806 married to Nicol Keith in Islay. They had a son Roger Keith married to Roger was not a name that had previously been used in Keith family as far as I can see so I am thinking that perhaps an earlier Roger Brown may be linked to both of us
I'm still looking for parents of Flora Brown and Nicol Keith, as well as birth and death dates for Nicol. Have you managed to uncover this information? Thank you for your past and future help! My Great Grandmother Elizabeth was their daughter.
BIRTH SEPTEMBER 1832 • Island Islay, Argyll County, Scotland
DEATH APRIL 28 1904 • Two Harbors, Lake County, Minnesota, USA
