Keen Riley and Langston Lines of the South ~ MS~TX~LA~ Updated August 8, 2005
About Our Family Research
This odyssey began several years ago with only my grandfather's name, his mother's name and where they were from. My search led me to many ancestor's and several distant cousins I never knew I had. I have to thank Hazel H., who also knew my grandfather, Forest who was a cousin to her mother. She has provided me with invaluable information and pictures of the Keens. My father, Edwin L. Keen died when I was only 7 years old so I never got to ask him anything about his family. Luckily, my mother was always intersted in family history so I have some information from her. Our branch moved on to Kansas where I now live, with others in Illinois and Arizona, Florida but it all started in Mississippi... way back when....
