  1. F.S. Key was my ancestor. His descendant, John George Key, was my great grandfather and a Probate Judge of Pike County, AL. His daughter, my Grandmother Lucille Key Thompson was a published poet ……. and served a wonderful bowl of ice cream and Hershey’s syrup to her little grandson.

  2. Francis Scott Key is my ancestor too on my mom’s side (her maiden name is Key) and she was born in 1947.
