I am searching for information about THOMAS KEATON born about 1791 in Pasquotank Co., NC. He enlisted in the U.S. Rifles in Elizabeth City, NC in Aug 1812 and served until 1817. He was married before 1819, possibly in Pasquotank Co., although he may have married somewhere else while serving in the military. He and his wife had at least 2 sons and possibly a daughter. The family was listed in the census reports in Pasquotank Co. in 1820 and 1830. He moved to Fulton Co., Illinois after 1830 and he remarried in 1836 in Fulton Co. His first wife may have died while the family was in North Carolina.
I have found a record of a deed dated in 1812 in Pasquotank County in which a THOMAS KEATON gave to his brothers, REUBEN KEATON and ANTHONY KEATON, his interest in property which he expected to inhereit from his father, WILLIAM KEATON, of Pasquotank Co.
If anyone knows anything about this KEATON family, I would really appreciate hearing from you.
