Editor's note

Hi Everyone ,

It's almost March & this month's holiday is St. Patrick's Day,

For those of you that are into genealogy, an idea that's being passed around on the ROOTS-L list when you get your census 2000 form in the mail fill it out and get a photocopy on acid free paper, to keep in your records.


P r o u d l y  A n n o u n c i n g

www.keeney.com has be reestablished by a gentleman by the name of Daniel A. Keeney who is also one of the newest members on the KFG mailing list.

If I remember right in 1995 keeney.com was the domain of a construction company, the most I ever found on them was a single page stating that the site would be up very shortly.


I'm in the process of re-vamping the entire site in an attempt to make every thing load faster. thanks to Daniel A. Keeney for pointing me in the direction of a software product called HTML Shrinker.

~Dan

Hi Dan,

    Thanks for your response to the posting. The document that I have is an inventory for uniforms given to Jerome on 09/03/1864. I originally purchased the document because the location listed on it was Brandy Station, VA., site of a large cavalry battle that I was researching. Anyone wanting to contact me concerning this can either use my e-mail address or log on to my site @ www.lostheirlooms.com. The site is being re-vamped due to overload, so if it is unavailable just use e-mail. Thanks again.

Subject:      The Summer of 1900 G:**** Information

From a book called “When My Grandmother Was a Child: by Leigh W. Rutledge, which begins: “In the summer of 1900, when my grandmother was a child...”

The average life expectancy in the United States was forty-seven.

Only 14 percent of the homes in the United States had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone. A three-minute call from Denver to New York City cost eleven dollars.

There were only 8,000 cars in the US and only 144 miles of paved roads. The maximum speed limit in most cities was ten mph.

Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, and Tennessee were each more heavily populated than California. With a mere 1.4 million residents, California was only the twenty-first most populous state in the Union.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Towel.

The average wage in the US was twenty-two cents an hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2500 per year, a veterinarian between $1500 and $4000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births in the United States took place at home.  Ninety percent of all US physicians had no college education. Instead, they attended medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press and by the government as “substandard.”

Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee cost fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month and used borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law prohibiting poor people from entering the country for any reason, either as travelers or immigrants.

The five leading causes of death in the US were: 1. Pneumonia and influenza, 2. Tuberculosis, 3. Diarrhea, 4.Heart disease, 5. Stroke.

The American flag had 45 stars. Arizona, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska hadn’t been admitted to the Union yet.

Drive-by shootings—in which teenage boys galloped down the street on horses and started randomly shooting at houses, carriages, or anything else that caught their fancy—were an ongoing problem in Denver and other cities in the West.

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was thirty. The remote desert community was inhabited by only a handful of ranchers and their families.

Plutonium, insulin, and antibiotics hadn’t been discovered yet. Scotch tape, crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn’t been invented

 There was no Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

One in ten US adults couldn’t read or write. Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Some medical authorities warned that professional seamstresses were apt to become sexually aroused by the steady rhythm, hour after hour, of the sewing machines foot pedals. They recommended slipping bromide—which was thought to diminish sexual desire—into the women’s drinking water.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at corner drugstores. According to one pharmacist, “Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach and the bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health.”

Coca-Cola contained cocaine instead of caffeine.

Punch-card data processing had recently been developed, and early predecessors of the modern computer were used for the first time by the government to help compile the 1900 census. (False - Herman Hollerith conducted the first automated counting of the census for the government in 1880 - his company became IBM. James powers did the counting in 1890 - his company became Remington Rand so IBM had a 10 year jump on R Rand)

Eighteen percent of households in the United States had at least one full-time servant or domestic.

There were about 230 reported murders in the US annually.

This makes more sense after you read this one

From: Wendy Holt <dynasty@apex.net>

Subject: Keeney

You know what? This is so weird. Let me explain.
I have an Emma Crutcher in my family line. She was married to Elijah Westerman.
After she was married to Elijah she married a man by the name of DAN KEENEY.
On her obituary it says that her and DAN KEENEY had two children, but there is a son, also by the name of DAN KEENEY. Her daughters names are: Lizzie (Futrell) and Lannie (BARROW).
According to some records that I have, DAN KEENEY SR., was married to Mary Ella Martin before he married Emma Crutcher.
DAN and Mary Ella had two children that I know of: Lavie Thomas Keeney and Myrtie B. Keeney.

The reason I said that it was a strange thing is because your name just
happens to be Dan Keeney as well.

Do any of these names mean anything to you?

I have pictures of these family members and I have some that I think are
these family members and I can't seem to identify any of them.

Please let me know if you are kin to this line or have some idea about them.

Thankyou for your response.

Miscellaneous

    This came from www.keeney.com & is used with the permission of it's owner Daniel @ Keeney,

I made a slight modification to it.

Keeney (That's "key-knee" with three 'e's and only one 'n')

If your surname is Keeney, then you are smiling as you remember that gaze of confusion that prompted you to say that very same thing along with, "Oh, that's alright..." But, as a Keeney, have you noticed that when a stranger gets it right the first time it becomes your confused look and a new friend that smiles? They remember another Keeney, and it's time to take notice.
