Return to my Genealogy Home Page

Most of the material on these Keeney pages is taken directly from the excellent work of the late
Roscoe C. Keeney
in his 2,597 Keeney Relatives and its related after-followings.

Roscoe's many years of diligent, reliable research on these family lines
served as stepping stones for many more family members' searches!

In Oct 2010, Anna Pinter, Uncle Dan's granddaughter and my own 2nd cousin, has contacted me with more data on her line.
Now in Oct 2012, Brian Williams, possibly a great-great-grandson of Uncle Nick, has contacted me with more data on his line.



Please be patient, as I've not finished transcribing
Roscoe's enormous work to these pages yet--thanks!


One of those related after-followings, a special issue of the Keeney Update, March 1987, includes a preface which numbers the generations beginning in America.  The first ancestor mentioned in that preface is unnumbered. However, I, John Gwin, in searching for a way to align ALL my lines, am renumbering them, starting with my own generation as 28. All others will go forward or backward from there. That leaves us plenty of room to work backward without having to stop and say, "Rats. I wish I'd started with ten instead of nine." And maybe we're being optimistic, but in this rapidly expanding world of the internet, who knows how soon and how far back we'll find ourselves? So 28 it is.

Subject: Keeney/Cline Family Tree Help

My name is Brian Williams.  I am seeking help finding my mother’s birth mother or her birth aunt.  My mom has been searching for over 40 years, and I’ve recently started helping out.  Her current name is Jan Henke.  Her pre-adoption name was Victoria Marie Cline.  Her mom is Barbara May Cline and aunt is Gladys Marie Cline.  Both were adopted from Missouri by Helen Gould (Keeney)
Cline and Robert Theodore Cline in 1939 (According to the 1940 Census).  

Helen was the daughter of Nick Burks Keeney.  This is an extension of line 26.04-27.02 on your John S. Keeney Sr. and Hannah Catherine Frazee outline.  We know through the home my mom was adopted from that Barbara went back to Missouri, found her birth mom, and lived with her.  Barbara had my mom in 1952 when she was 18.  Barbara’s birth mother gave up my mom for adoption without her knowledge.  During our research, we found Helen Cline’s 1998 obituary.  It states that she was survived by her one daughter Marie Fought of Nitro, WV, seven grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren.  We believe Marie Fought is Gladys Marie Cline.  Do you have any information, contacts, etc., on Gladys, her children/grandchildren, her sister Barbara, or anything regarding their birth parents names in Missouri?  Any help or direction would be appreciated.  Thank you.     Brian

Rev. LeRoy M. Keeney

The Rev. Dr. LeRoy M. Keeney, 83, of St. Albans, died at home June 9, 2004, after a long illness.

He was retired as pastor from the Highlawn Baptist Church, having served from 1949 until 1986. Following his retirement, the Rev. Keeney served as interim minister for the First Baptist Church of Dunbar, the Main Street Baptist Church of Point Pleasant, and Calvary Baptist Church in Charleston.

He graduated from Charleston High School, attended Alderson Broaddus College, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Morris Harvey College in 1943. In 1946 he graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Alderson Broaddus College in 1973 and served as a member of its board of trustees for over ten years.

The Rev. Keeney served as president of the West Virginia Baptist Convention in 1965, its centennial year. For over 30 years he was a member of the West Virginia Baptist Executive Board. He served over 25 years as president of the West Virginia Baptist Education Society, which grants 50 scholarships annually to students preparing to enter the ministry. The Rev. Keeney was a founder of the St. Albans Ministerial Association and served as its president. He was a member of the St. Albans Rotary Club and also served as its president. He was chairman of the first committee to develop the Parchment Valley Conference Center. For many years, he was a volunteer chaplain at Thomas Memorial Hospital.

The Rev. Keeney is survived by his wife of 62 years, Theresa Knapp Keeney; daughter, Rebecca Palmer and her husband, John, of Charleston; son, Stanley Keeney and his wife, Martha, of Chagrin Falls, Ohio; beloved grandchildren Morgan Griffith and her husband, Dave, of Charleston, Campbell Palmer and his wife, Suzanne, of Falls Church, Va., Mary Beth Keeney and her fiancé Chad Gunerra, and Brian Keeney of Chagrin Falls, Ohio; and great grandchildren Amanda Jane and Michael Griffith, and Jack Palmer. His last surviving sister is Mrs. Wirt (Frankie) Harmon of Paris, Tenn.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m., Saturday, June 12, at Highlawn Baptist Church, St. Albans, with the Rev. Joe Hyde and the Rev. Cyril Johnson officiating. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Park, South Charleston. Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Highlawn Baptist Church.

The family suggests that, in lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the West Virginia Baptist Education Society, c/o Dr. Lawrence Hoptry, Corresponding Secretary, P.O. Box 248, Nitro, WV 25143; or to Highlawn Baptist Church, 2304 Jefferson Avenue, St. Albans, WV 25177.

The family expresses thanks to Hospice for its care of Rev. Keeney, and to Curry Funeral Home, Alum Creek, for handling the arrangements.

Hannah Catherine Frazee was from Kentucky, and at least one of her parents if not she herself was born there, so these POB are at least in part in error.

This is my granduncle Roscoe Conkling Keeney, Sr., son of John Stires Keeney and Hannah Catherine Frazee and brother of my grandfather, McDonald Keeney. He will become the father of Roscoe Conkling Keeney, Jr., the grand old genealogist of the Keeney clan, still living in Charleston as of this writing (14 Nov 2009).

This is Maggie Paxton. Until seeing this census, I'd never heard her called anything but Maggie. Perhaps her given name IS Maggie and the enumerator speculated that this was a nickname and recorded Margurette. On the other hand, this being her first census as an adult, she may have given the enumerator her real first name, a rare occurrance.

This is my granduncle Robert Keeney, "Uncle Bob", as I knew him. He and his two sons, Tommy and Bobby, built our house at 7 Keiffer Drive in St. Albans. I got to watch and help them build it the winter of 1960-61. My mother, Uncle Bob's niece, designed the house, and they built it from her drawings--without an architect's blueprints.
