I'm Mike Keena. Oringially my family came here from Ireland @ 1833. My great-great grandparents were Michael E. Keena (born 1824) and Martha Murphy (born 1828). They located themselves in Buffal, NY till about 1861 when they relocated to Milwaukee, WI. Eventually some migrated to Chicago; where my grandfather William Albert Keena was born December 1894. My dad, William Lester Keena born in Chicago, 1923, currently lives in Roseville, California. He had 9 other sibblings; but seven have past away. Of my Dad's existing brother and sister is: James,living in West Frankfurt, Illinois and Patsy (Keena) Cash living in St.Joseph, Missouri. I have a brother, Chris, born 1947 (Evanston, Illinois) living in Orange County, California.

Presently I'm discovering who Michael E. and Martha Keena's grandkids were; and then hopefully their kids, etc... . Michael E. and Martha took seriously the Biblical command be fruitful and mulitply; they had 10 kids. One of their sons, Edward A. Keena had 5 kids. Though Joseph H. Keena, another son of Michael E. and Martha had only one child; he, William A. Keena had 10 kids of his own.
So, if you can give locations and some birth dates we might find a connection.
