From the "Keener and Hearn Family History", gathered and compiled in 1967 & 1968 by Myrtle Hearn Millican- found at the Albuquerque Genealogy Library: "The following was taken in 1959 from the Bible of Frank Keener of Groves, Texas.He was the son of Wesley Wade Keener and grandson of Gaines B. Keener. Lucy W. Keener, wife of Gaines B. Keener and daughter of Wm. & Latitia D. Wade, was born January 31, 1833. Gaines B. Keener and Lucy W. Wade were married January 4, 1855. Caroline Stanton Keener, daughter of Gaines B. Keener and Jane E. Stanton, born March 28, 1871. Died Tuesday, Sept.23, 1879 Willie Edwin son of Gaines B. Keener and Jane Stanton Aged 5 years, 1 month and 10 days."
I believe you have two Gaines B. Keeners confused. Gaines B. Keener had a nephew named Gaines B. Keener, son of Tilmon/Tilghman Keener and Stacey Roberson/Robertson.He was born 1844 (1846) and died March 13, 1903. He married Naomi Beene.I have information that he had another wife, but do not have information or documention regarding this marriage.Could this be why your great grandfather isn't listed?If this is the case, and if you will be so kind to send it to me, I will be happy to add it to the website.We strive to have as accurate and complete information as possible.
