Decendents of James Howard Keney, western Washington County, Southeastern Ohio.

James Howard Keney b. December 20, 1822 d. January 14, 1862 m. March 14, 1844 to Catherine Ann Rowland (Kitty). I am lead to believe that James Howard Keney was born in Jefferson County, Ohio which is where Steubenville is located. I plan to make a trip there this year to see if I can find him in County records or the Public Library Genealogy section. If anyone viewing this page has any information about James or his parents, please E-Mail me at the address shown below. Also, James died of measles while in a civil war training camp called Camp Tupper. James Keney was in Company F, 77th Ohio Volunteer Infantry when the measles killed him and many others at Camp Tupper.

What I am looking for is the spouse's parents names and any other missing and/or unknown dates, places, events that will fill in the blanks. James Howard Keney must have had a problem with the spelling of the family name. My major source of information says he signed four legal documents during his lifetime. Each document has his name spelled differently. (Keney/Kiney/Kenny/Kinne) and it appears he changed the spelling from the original Kenney.

If you can contribute any information missing in the above outline or confirm same, please contact me by E-Mail or Snail Mail. Any help would be appreciated.

PS: I also have accumulated exceptional information on the decendents of Elisha A Keney. My contributer and I would also except data on Elisha and his decendents.
