+ KECK

Searching for any information about the early years of Conrad (Coonrod) Keck, who died in Claiborne Co., TN between 15 Aug 1821 and 21 Dec 1824. Conrad Keck was married to Mary Ann (MOSER?) and they had 13 or 14 children, some born in North Carolina, and some born in Tennessee. I have good evidence that Conrad was in Orange County, NC starting at least as early as March 1782 and as late as (in what had become Guilford County, NC) in June 1807, when he and his family migrated to eastern Tennessee. None of the records that I have found (other than his claim filed in Claiborne Co., TN for a Rev. War Pension asserting he enlisted from PA) give any evidence of his place of birth. There is a theory that he was born in Northampton County, PA, but no hard evidence. Any help in solving this problem of Conrad KECK's origins would be much appreciated.
