Willis E Keen b: 1829 AL
Posted by: James Keen (ID *****7273) Date: June 19, 2012 at 12:48:20
  of 1802

I'm looking for info on Willis Keen. He was born in 1829 in AL, he then moved to TN, and on to KY where is the last place I've seen his name. He was married to Maragret Ann Choat. He had 6 kids, John Franklin, William Thomas "Tom", Daisy R, Julia Ann, Elnora Ella, and Mary J "Molly". I found an article where he left Margaret, as if he abandoned her and the kids. The article says she waited 7 years for him to return before marrying someone else. So I'm looking for two things: Who are his parents? and What happened after he left? (Get married again? Have more kids?) On ancestry.com someone has his parents listed as William Keen b: 1796 NC and Lucinda b:1806 SC. Someone else on a separate forum said they didn't know his parents names but knew that his parents were born in AL. I've spoken to other William Keen descendants and there appears to be two different lines with similar names including another Willis Keen that is from GA. I don't think that William Keen is the father of of my Willis E Keen. I can't find anything connect Willis to any William Keen or any other person except his children. Any help will be great. Thanks!
