Hey there!
thought I would get back into this and just found this great Killen site.

According to my Grandmother and father, our crew started in Louth with Matthew Killen, my GGF. My grandfather is Edward Killen, lived and died in Scituate MA. His brother was George Killen, Chief of Detectives in Boston for many years. popular with the Kennedy chappaquiddick, Marthas Vineyard (MA) incident, and was the main detective that cracked the Cape Cod murders in the 60's that was written about in the book "in his garden: The anatomy of a murderer".
My Dad, William Earnest Killen is an Air National guard lifer in MA and his cousin is Ambrose Killen in the London England area.

Matthew Killen had a sister, Mini Killen came to the US via New York on the Lucitania. Roberta is her daughter.

Not much more than that right now, but this may help later on.

Bill
