KEENAN Wed May 7 16:09:14 1997
I am researching KEENAN and HENNESSEY from Watervliet(originally West Troy) NY. JOHN KEENAN b.abt1840 in West Troy(Watervliet NY) m. ANNIE LYNCH abt1870,probably in NY. Family verbal history has it that he was the captain of a whaling ship,and that an island is named for him off the East Coast. I think someone in this lineage was a whaling captain, but I don't think it is him. I believe they both died in NY, probably West Troy(Watervliet NY). JOHN KEENAN and ANNIE LYNCH had three children, I think. I am sure of two of them: CHARLES FRANCIS KEENAN(1872/1948) b.West Troy(Watervliet NY) m. GENEVIEVE LEWIS(1875/1910) in 1896. They lived in Chicago. They are my grandparents. JOHN KEENAN(abt1874/unkown), I am not sure of this child. CATHERINE (AUNT KATE) KEENAN (abt1875/abt1937) m. JAMES HENNESSEY abt 1895.
