It would seem the Keeran name is not common.In my family line (gggrandfather), I have a Thomas Keeran, born abt. 1817 in Ohio, according to all of the census data I have.He married a Letitia??, born about the same time, also from Ohio. Living next door to him in the 1860 census is a Benjamin keeran, born abt. 1787 in Virginia.I am hoping someone may have some information on the Keeran family. I did find one small nugget of info on a Thomas Keeran who was in the Revolution from Virgina.I am not sure where he would fit in. One daughter of Thomas and Letitia, Laura M. Keeran, born 1858 in Illinois, married Joseph harvey Kimble.If anyone has inforamtion on this line would you please contact me.
