Henry Keatts

An article from Sunday Gazette magazine section Aug 22, 1943 Code Fourche suggests that this was the first Keatts to come to AR and that he sent back for his parents and the rest of the family. Supposedly he came to AR in 1830 and took three land grants on Fourche Island (3000 acres). It is possible that his father is the original settler of this land but that would of put him 57 when he came to AR, bit old for adventure?

There is a metal at his grave consisting of a wreath of stars inscribed with "In Honor of Service War of 1812." Inside the ring is an anchor and on the anchor is a star with "N.S.U.S.D." on it and below "Lt. Henry Keatts"
