I am the daughter of Lindsay Martin Keeney and am looking for any information on my line of Keeney’s. Family History, and county or town histories that may mention them. I love the stories and descriptive histories that tell about their lives, the areas where they lived and what they did in those days. Thank you in advance for any information you can give me. I am willing to share whatever I have with you.

I am researching the Keeney, Massey families.  I have Nancy Keeney married James Massey in Saline County, MO in May 1827.  It states that her father is Thomas and her mother was Mary Reeves (sp?).  If you have any thing further on the family I would appreciate any help you can give.  I have the descendants of James and Nancy, but cannot seem to find their ancestors.  Please email me at onsitegraphics@nidlink.com

Thanks, Linda Massey

My Moses M. Keeney was born Nov 1862 and married Miranda Barker. I am a descendent from Peter Keeney and have a great deal of information until then. I am missing some pieces, but currently I don't know where they are because I am really new at this. I live in Pulaski Co, Kentucky. It is hard having all of this information at my fingertips. I would  love to have the email addresses of anyone that may have information that dates back farther than Peter and Ann Keeney or anyone researching the line of Moses M. Keeney or Henry H. Keeney.
