I think we are both descended from Michael Keena & Martha Murphy. You are from their youngest child, Joseph, who had William Albert, who you say had 9 or 10 children.
My great grandmother was their oldest surviving child, Sarah. She had Mary Genevieve, who in turn had my father, and 8 other children. I have the Keena family Bible, starting with the marriage of Martha & Michael. I was told Michael came from Curragh, Kildare, Ireland, and came to the US in 1840 or even earlier, with his parents & brothers.
Martha was born in Canada, where her (Irish) father was stationed in a British army post.
Not many descendants were sons, so I do not have the Keena name, just the history. I counted 25 grandchildren for Michael & Martha, but could not could the next generation, not knowing all the families. I got up to 28, thinking William Albert had just 3 children.
It is 5 years since your post, but I hope you will reply.
Sarah
