Stacy, I don't think Carol has read your post or she probably would have responded. I'm her twin sis Cynthia and we're research partners. She is definitely the one with the amazing knowledge of this family but I've been learning from her. For many years, researchers have not been able to prove conclusively that Thomas Keene was 'the correct Thomas Keene'. From the English cousin's point of view, it wasn't actually considered a plus to share the estate with those adventurers in the new land. The whole 'ideal' of gaining property in the Americas turned into a grueling testimony of endurance for the Colonists who ended up making all sorts of concessions in order to live and raise families. Since the overall plethora of information now available on the web, with wills being revisited and obscure documents becoming available for researchers, the Gosnold family in England has included the research of the Colonial families which extend to Thomas Keene and his wife Mary, along with their four children. I was pretty surprised to see it listed with the Gosnold research last month. It appears to be very accurate and a well documented accounting with so many reference sitings it is hard to read. Look around on the web and see if you can find it with Gosnold. I'm still waiting to see how widely the findings are accepted. Please write again with any more information you'd like to share. Cynthia
