Keith Burke will be sharing the intriguing story of Mary Draper Ingles. Her journey began when she was kidnapped in 1755 by the Shawnee during a raid of her home at Draper Meadows. She walked 500-600 miles on foot to escape.

Keith began his genealogy experience 65 years ago, when he had to search for a substitute for his grandmother’s birth certificate for Social Security. Since then his genealogical trail has led him to discover such famous ancestors as Richard I; William I the Conqueror; Andrew Johnson and Daniel Boone.
