My name is Wilma Keun and I am researching the family Keun, used to be Coen, then Kuen and now Keun.
Our Family Tree starts in 1579 with Jochum Bastiaans Coen, born in Berlin, Germany in 1579. He married Deeuwer Watman on the 5th of April in 1605 in Groningen, The Netherlands. She was born in 1585 in Groningen, The Netherlands.
Now I'am searching for descendants in The United States from Rudolph Laurens Keun and his wife Fennechien Jochems Lula. Rudolph was born in Scheemda, The Netherlands, on the 15th of April in 1807. He married Fennechien the 17th May 1832 in Scheemda. They had 3 daughters: Harmanna (1833), Jantje (1841), Willemina (1847) and 2 sons: Laurens (1838) and Jacob (1844).
They've been emigrated between 1850 and 1860 to the US, probably to the state Illinois.
Any information would be appriciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
This homepage isn't ready yet. I'll put my family tree as soon as possible on this page.
