If your last name is KEEFE, then it is probable that your ancestors are from Ireland. For historical information about this surname, see the O'Keeffes of Ireland link above. The earliest known South Carolina ancestry began with the William Keeffe family.which lived along the Pee Dee river in the Old Marion District This family may have been related to the Treddell Keefe line of North Carolina, but this link has not yet been proven. There was also a Kiff family in the Pee Dee area, which may or may not be a mispelling of Keefe. Then there were also the KEITHs of South Carolina which can sometimes be a mispelling of KEEFE. In Edgefield county was this family, and here are some early Charleston families.
