Notes for JOSEPH KEEN:|
Enlisted in Military service on 2/11/1859 at Philadelphia, PA: Company K, U.S. Regular Army, Light Atillary, Battery H, 4th Regiment. On 1/28/1860 Joseph Keen was listed as deserted from Fort Randall, S.D.
On 8/7/1862, at Counsil Bluffs, Iowa he was mustered in to the 29th Iowa Infantry under the name of Joseph Murray.
A regimental history of the 29th Iowa describes every move that the regiment made from the time it was organized until every member was discharged and transported home. It confirms a statement made by Levi Keen, Joseph's brother who belonged to the MO. Vol. Cavelry, that they ran into each other in Clarendon, ARK. in August of 1863. (Pension papers). Joseph (Murray) Keen was honorably discharged on 8/10/1865 from New Orleans, LA.
