About Our Family Research
I'm just beginning my search of my family tree. On my fathers' side what I do know is that my great grandfather, James Keene, of Mill Village, PA, was adopted, after his father was killed in a railroad accident. The original family name was Kerr, with Keene the adopted name. My grandfather was one of three children. The oldest Pearl Keene Berringer, Marian Keene Carnahan, and my grandfather, Lyell Keene. The family comes from County Cork, in Ireland.
My grandfather married Margaret Benton, of Kersey, PA.
