Re: Book of Kenans

I am looking for information about the relatives of Hugh and Margaret (CAMMOCK) KEENAN, who emigrated from Bangor Parish, County Down, Ireland about 1883. While crossing the Atlantic, the name became KENAN.

Hugh (1839-1897) was earlier married to Isabella THOMPSON (abt1837-1873), who bore eight children; Margaret (1840-1924) was earlier married to James Campbell BOYD (abt1842-1871), which union produced two children; and the marriage of Hugh and Margaret produced four more. Six of the fourteen children made the trip to the US: Lydia BOYD (hers); Joseph Thompson KEENAN (his); and Thomas KENAN, Alexander S. KENAN, Annabel KENAN, and Margaret KENAN (theirs).

I believe Joseph settled in New Jersey, dying in Secaucus, NJ in 1912. The others made their way to Syracuse, NY.

If anyone can add to the picture on either side of the Atlantic, it would be appreciated.
