This family originated from Sir Thomas Kinneb 1578in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England.You will notice the spelling has changed over the years assumably beause of religious persecution. Sir Thomas first came to this country with his family and settled in Salem, MA.John Keney was on the rolls of the Salem Church 12/26/1672.The family migrated to CT, PA, OH, MI and west.
My lineage is as follows:JOHN KENEY b 1600mSARAH CHEEVER;ALEXANDER KENEYb 1625-1634m ALICE COLFAX (COLLOX); EBENZER KEENEYb 1672mMARY COLT;JOHN KEENEYb 1712mSARAH WEBSTER;MARK KEENEY b1740mABIGAIL BEEMAN; THOMAS KEENEYb 4/12/1772mHANNAH SOULE;CYRUS KEENEYb 10/19/1798mMARGARET NORTHRUP;HARVEY KEENEYb 11/19/1825m MARTHA MARIA BRAINARD; and ALTON HARVEY KEENEYb6/8/1869mJEANETTA LENORE DEWEY, my great-grandparents.
I am also working on the geneology of the following families:DEWEY, HAGER, LOOOMIS, LONG, McDANIEL and O'NEILL.My passions are to find information regarding HANNAH SOULE b 7/14/1768 in Dutchess County, NY and confirm the link between JOHN KENEY AND MARK KEENEY to prove they are father and son.
I look forward to communicating with other "family cousins" and would be more than willing to share what I have.
