      Pioneer Keeney Family

      REV. JOHN JONATHAN KEENEY JOHN JONATHAN KEENEY (b. 25 Dec 175 0, d. 1 Jan 1805 in Jefferson County, Tennessee, son of JOHN (some records say DAVID) KEENEY. who settled in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now West Virginia) about 1756, recei7sroad River, Greene Co (now Tennessee); grant was given by state of North Carolina, since borders had not yet been agreed upon. He is listed in a 1783 assessor's listing with 14 horses and 9 cattle; in February 1797 he was appointed road overseer from Indian Creek to Big Pigeon; he was listed in Cocke County history as one of the founders in 1797. He was married to Annie Elizabeth Poets (b.1754). Children of John Jonathan + Annie Elizabeth Keeney left Tennessee about the time of the War of 1812, as western lands were becoming available and settled first in Indiana, but then scattered to northwest Missouri and the Polk and Warren County areas of Iowa. Almost all of the family of John, Jr. made their way to Oregon and scattered out from Idaho to California. Many stories of their trails to the West have amused and pleased their offspring. Iowa genealogical records several years ago listed the John Jonathan Keeney children as follows:

      1. JOHN KEENEY, JR. (?) to Missouri, family to Oregon
      2. ALOYSIUS EPHRAIM KEENEY (1774-1788) - Tennessee 3. NANCY ANNA KEENEY (1776-1807) - Tennessee
      4. JONATHAN ANTHONY KEENEY - Indiana, Iowa
      5. JOSEPH DAVID KEENEY
      6. HIRAM ASHLEY KEENEY (1782-1788) - Tennessee
      7. GEORGE CHARLES WILLIAM KEENEY (1784-1788)-Tennessee
      8. EBENEZER JEREMIAH KEENEY (1786-1788]- Tennessee 9. PETER FRANCIS MICHAEL KEENEY (reported 1789-1830 in Tennessee; Missouri records disagree)
      10. SAMUEL THOMAS JEFFERSON KEENEY (1872-1872 in Tennessee)

      Assuming that this list is essentially correct most Keeney researchers have concentrated on the John, Jr. family and the Jonathan Anthony family.

      WFT v45t-767 notes: Daughter of John Kenney who in 1797 had helped select the site for the Cocke Co Tennessee courthouse. Nancy's brother John Keeney Jr was possibly the first of the family to emingrate to eastern Indiana. At least he obtained land in Fayette County on Nov 1 1811 and was soon followed by his parents and brothers, and by James, Stephan, William and John Odlham. All acquired land in Fayette Co 1813-1816. Most of their descendants to moved to Missouri, Iowa and points west but many Oldhams are still in Eastern Indiana.
