Surname Saturday: Keck

kst1969   November 13, 2010   Comments Off on Surname Saturday: Keck

My Keck Line is the one with my current most problem brick wall.  I would like to join the DAR through my patriot ancestor Conrad Frederick Keck but I am stuck on proving the connection from his son Andrew to Andrew’s son Frederick.

Name Lab defines the Keck name as follows:

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: from the Old Norse personal name Keikr (from Old West Scandinavian keikr ‘bent backwards’).
  2. German: nickname from Middle High German kec ‘lively’, ‘active’ (cognate of English quick), which later changed its meaning to ‘bold’, ‘forward’, ‘fresh’.

My Kecks begin in Pennsylvania travel through North Carolina and Tennessee and end up in Madison and Washington Counties in Arkansas.  If anyone has any information on the link from Andrew to Frederick please email me!
