TX 1883

I am trying to learn the name of the Keen family that took my great aunt to raise in 1883 in McLennan Co TX. Her name was Catherine Elizabeth Bumpass b 31 May, 1881. Her mother died in Feb 1883 and her father placed the children with other families to raise. Aunt Lizzie was placed with a Keen family and they changed her name to Magnolia Ann Keen. About the time that she married William Edward Huffman in 1899 she learned her birth name. He was born in Young Co TX making me think that her Keen family may have moved north from the Waco, TX area. She is listed as Lizzie Magnolia Bumpass Huffman on many people's family trees.

Any leads to the name of this Keen family will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
