EENEY, Calvin Noyes, seedsman, was born in LeRoy, N.Y., Feb.6, 1849, son of Nicholas Bishop and Mary Melinna (Ely) Keeney. His first paternal American ancestor was William Keeney, a native of England, who settled at New London, Conn., in 1640. From William and his wife, Agnes, the descent was through John and Elizabeth Latham. John and Hannah Waller, William and Lucretia Caulkins, William and Betty Mobre, and Joseph and Mary Bishop, the grandparents of Calvin N. Keeney. His father was a farmer and merchant. The son received his early education from private tutors and at public schools in Batavia and Lancaster, N.Y. He then entered the LeRoy Academic Institute. He left that institution at the close of the Civil War for the purpose of assisting his father in a produce business established by the latter in LeRoy some months earlier. In 1872 his father admitted him as a partner in the business, which then became known as N.B. Keeney & Son, and in 1905, following the death of the elder Keeney, the son became sole owner, continuing his connection with the enterprise until shortly before his own death. In 1928 N. B. Keeney & Son was merged with two other concerns in the establishment of Associated Seed Growers, Inc., which later became known as ASGROW Seed Co., New Haven, Conn. In the year prior to the consolidation the business has attained a surplus account exceeding $339,000.
This transaction marked the beginning of his experimental work in the development of a number of strains of stringless beans, most notable among them, which was later known as Burpee's Stringless Green Pod, which became one of the most popular varieties grown in the United States. To further their enterprise, the Keeneys purchased several hundred acres of Choice farmland in South Dakota during the early 1880's, later adding leased acreage in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and California on which new varieties of wax beans, stringless beans, and kidney beans were developed and grown as seed stock for the companies headed by W. Atlee and David Burpee (q.v.) and other seed distributors and canners.
Other of Keeney's business interests included the LeRoy National Bank, which he helped organize in 1902, serving as vice-president thereafter until his death, and the LeRoy Canning Co., of which he was and organizer and president. He was also a founder and vice-president of the Leroy Salt Co., which was later sold to the International Salt Co. His interests further included lumber and cotton. During 1914-1918 he advised on food relief for Europe during the First World War and served on the commission for Belgian relief. He was a member of the American Seed Trade Association, the Rochester (N.Y.) Chamber of Commerce, and the Stafford (N.Y.) Country Club. A member of the First Baptist Church, LeRoy, he was active in church affairs. At one time he donated $15,000 toward rebuilding of the church and the erection of a new Sunday School. In addition, he established a trust fund of $20,000, the income from which was to be used by the church. Politically he was a Republican. Photography was his hobby. He was married in Haverstraw, N.Y., Sept. 22. 1880, to Charlotte, daughter of Amasa Stetson Freeman of that community, a clergyman, and had two daughters, Ruth Mary and Charlotte Freeman, who married Elbert John Townsend. Calvin N. Keeney died in LeRoy, NY, Oct. 30, 1930.
HANDLEY BAPTIST CHURCH
HANDLEY WEST VIRGINIA
Please endure some personal notes since you're getting 8 pages this time. After 28 years of teaching and professional offices both state and national, I changed professions this year, being ordained as an American Baptist minister in February and entering my first full-time assignment in November. 1 love it, but it puts a cramp in my practice of dashing from state to state on genealogical pilgrimages...the past year alone to Oregon, Kentucky, Ohio & Virginia. But the show must go on and when I can't handle it I have a host of excellent researchers in mind to take over.
This issue is larger because (A) I've waited years for promised material that hasn't come and (B) there's too much here to keep are filing folders. Meanwhile, I'm holding back a host of material you have sent me - much from New England and much that ties in the Tennessee Keeneys. They'll be printed, provided this issue is paid for - the printing is almost double and the postage in almost double. So I'm asking those who gave $2 more than two years ago to respond - not you folks who have already gone the second mile. I'm keeping the old address, to avoid confusion, but my telephone is 304-442-8285.
WED WITH LOVE & A FEATHER BED
FEELDEN L. WARREN & JANE KEENEY WARREN (Picture missing)
(From Kentucky to Kansas)
Mary Jane Keeney, b.4-8-1832 in Somerset, KY, a daughter of Henry W. Keeney (1798-1879) and Elizabeth Waddle (1801-1880) Keeney, was married September 9, 1852 to Feelden Warren (b. 9-23-1826, d.3-10-1913). After a courtship which didn't cost the groom a cent, and while the wedding was not of the procession order, it was an affair of considerable social importance, for the bride owned her feather bed, made of feathers she had picked herself, and put into a tick her own hands had spun. They rode off on horseback next day to their little one-room house on a piece of rented land, ten miles away, and their furniture consisted of the feather bed and a box for a table. They had a few hogs, raised same corn, and with the money Warren earned as a hand on a river boat, they got along and were happy. They needed a son to help the father earn the living, but instead, girl after girl came until there were 8. Then there were two boys and another girl: Kary Martha, Sarah Elizabeth, Catherine, Perlina, Ellen, Eliza Jane, Lucy, Nancy Helen, Eunice Perkins (pronounced You-ni-cy by the mother), William Franklin, Matthew and Margaret Frances.
They lived in the Atchison KS area until 1869, when they moved to Rock Castle County, where they lived 37 years. Warren taught himself to read & write and made a particular study of the Bible. He joined the Baptist church at 18, was selected clerk, then deacon, clerk of the Baptist association, and finally ordained into the ministry.
Church services lasted two days, Saturday to talk business and "deal with the disorderly", and receive new members and Sunday for preaching. Mr. Warren never earned more than $8 a year preaching.
When the Warren's left Kentucky, they brought tobacco along, and were in despair as this ran out. Mary Jane smoked a pipe and could have never raised the 11 children without the comfort she got from it. By 1908 the Warrens had 85 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren.

THE FIRST KEENEYS IN GREENBRIER COUNTY, WV
On 25 April 1751 John Keeney patented forty acres in the Greenbrier region, then Augusta Co., VA. This unbroken wilderness began to be settled about that time; the earliest settlement on Muddy Creek, was wiped out in the Indian massacre of 1763. About 1769 some daring settlers returned, but not until after the battle of Point Pleasant (1774) could they be safe from Indian raids. The army of Gen. Andrew Lewis had hacked out a road to the Kanawha Valley and it became a wagon road in 1782.
In 1770 this area became Botetourt Co., in 1776/7 Montgomery Co., in 1778 Greenbrier Co.
The Keeney family arrived by 1773, perhaps after several trips by father John. The oldest of his 7 sons was 20 in 1770 and surely there must have been some daughters.
Rev. John Alderson, pioneer Baptist preacher and circuit rider married most of the settlers and baptized many of them, including Catherine Lewis Keeney, wife of Michael.
During the Revolutionary War son Jonathan was a soldier and Michael, Thomas and David had acquired another 375 acres. In 1789 he was granted 170 acres (sold in 1804 by son David) and 115 acres (sold by him and Catherine in 1795). In 1791 John and Catherine, recognizing advanced age and citing "parental affection", deeded to their two youngest sons, David and Moses, the 353 acre Muddy Creek settlement. The sons were "to maintain" them. Witnesses were John Matthews, John Viney and Simon Shoemaker, a neighbor.
Children of John & Catherine Keeney included these sons; JONATHAN (b.12-25-1750), who went to Tennessee by 1773, and whose family spread to Iowa, Missouri, Oregon and elsewhere; JOHN M. (1759-1832), married Mary Sampson in 1781 and lived at Fort Arbuckle; MICHAEL (1761-1790) married Catherine Lewis; THOMAS B. (b. 1764), DAVID b.1765), married Peninah Bailes 4-4-1778, and MOSES, father of the Kanawha Co. Keeney clan (1766-c.1840), married Frances Harris. The MOSES KEENEY family is listed in detail in 2,597 KEENEY RELATIVES, published 1978.
MICHAEL KEENEY/CATHERINE LEWIS FAMILY LISTED
ATTENTION: Montgomery, McRoberts and Keeneys in OHIO, KY, IOWA & POINTS WEST
MICHAEL KEENEY FAMILY MICHAEL KEENEY, who died at age 29, probably of pneumonia, was born in 1761 and came with the family to Muddy Creek. He built a substantial three-section log house (part of which still stands), with rock chimneys and a small stairway to the loft for his bride, Catherine Lewis, a niece of Gen. Lewis. The marriage vows were taken 1/11/1781 Rev. John Alderson. Catherine was a daughter of John & Mary McCreery Lewis, her grandparents being George & Catherine Lewis and John & Agnes Crawford McCreery. An appraisal of Michael's belongings showed 6 chairs, 3 beds, 1 woolen wheel, 1 lamp, 1 chest, 1 brass kettle, 3 25 lb. Kettles, 1 loom and reel, 28 yd. flannel, 6 half-hides, 1 old trap, 3 bells, flax. In August 1789 Moses and Michael had agreed "to maintain" their parents and were deeded the home place, but Michael died the following February, leaving four small children.
Catherine remained a widow for 3 years, practiced thrift and managed the land well. On February 26, 1793 she married William Hilliard, member of another Greenbrier family, a member of the Kanawha Rangers and one of 26 who had accompanied Col. George Clendenin in the establishment of Fort Lee, now Charleston. Taking the four children by horseback, they followed the trails to Teays Valley (now Putnam Co.), where they established their home. There they became close friends with Henry Montgomery, a Pennsylvania militiaman and veteran of the American Revolution.

NANCY KEENEY MONTGOMERY
NANCY KEENEY, second child of Michael & Catherine Lewis Keeney, was born in 1783 in Greenbrier Co and died in 1783 at Kanawha Falls, WV. She fell in love with Capt. Henry Montgomery when she was just 17 and he about 35. He was born in Ireland in 1765, son of James (killed in 1775 in a colonial attempt to take Quebec) & Huldah Montgomery. Nancy & Henry returned to Greenbrier Co, where she deeded her share of her father's estate to an uncle, George Lewis. For a time the lived in Teays Valley at Hurricane Creek, but sold their land and moved to Kanawha Falls where they occupied large cabin and had 75 acres of land, which they purchased from John Huddleston. This tract became known as Montgomery's Ferry. In 1820 Henry was granted a patent from Governor Thomas Randolph of Virginia to 50 acres on both sides of the river, giving him complete control of the ferry, which stayed in operation for 100 years. Their home was a stopover for wayfarers. They were buried in an old, now abandoned cemetery at Kanawha Falls, but in recent years their graves have been designated by a granite slab bearing a bronze plate with the inscription, "Pioneer Ancestors of the Montgomery Family in the Upper Kanawha Valley. Henry died in 1852.
Since the children of Nancy & Henry were 9th generation Keeney offspring, their listing will begin with number 9.
