Daniell Lee Keeney

Welcome to the KFG online newsletter. The purpose of these pages are to get Keeney Researchers together & share information on our surname. I would like to fashion this after The Keeney UpDate, that Roscoe C. Keeney, Jr., puts out about 4 times a year. So in that reverence, I hereby ask Keeney researchers for donations of information, in order to accomplish this.

Found online

The following items were found online :

The minutes of the Big Pigeon Baptist Church, giving reference to Jonathan Anthony Keeney being given liberty to preach on 01 august 1812. Other Keeney's also listed in the index. This was found by Dr. Gregory L. Watkins (a third great-grandson of J. A. Keeney).

In checking out the above I also found;

History of Greenbrier County West Virginia 
....It is principally drained by Greenbrier river, and its tributaries; but from its western border numerous creeks flow northwestwardly into Gauley river, the principal of which is Sewell's creek. The mountains are covered with a growth of large timber of various kinds, and are infested with reptiles, such as the rattlesnake, copperhead, blacksnake, &c.

An updated printing of the book Rev. Jonathan Anthony Keeney and His Descendants is now being prepared.
