Kezia, a house servant  in 1861, was the daughter of Joseph and Mary Ann Rushen Keys and was born 16th April 1844 in Danbury, Essex, England. She was baptized in England by her father into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) in 1856. Kezia's mother died in England with cancer of the tongue, Kezia was seventeen years old at the time and her family of three sisters and her father decided to emigrate to Utah.

Kezia's three sisters left England first, then Kezia, who traveled with Warren N. Dusenbury on the ship Manhattan, her father following later. For the first year Kezia arrived in Utah, she made her home with her sisters. While she was with her sister Ann Rushen Keys Paxman in American Fork, she met John Durrant, whom she later married on the 30th September 1870, thus becoming his third plural wife, and they adopted her baby, Ada Alice.

Kezia made her first home in the granary, later she moved into a one room log cabin, which is presumed to have been built on the same lot as their next home, which was located at 263 East State, American Fork Utah. Their home was a half block east, and across the street from the home shared by Jemima and Elizabeth, John's other two wives.

Kezia's Husband was John Durrant, My name is Richard Durrant. John was raised in Hertfordshire until he left for the USA in 1861. John was a younger brother to my Great Great Grandfather. ***
