    Bruce Gordon Kenney bkclar@verizon.net
    I am Bruce G. Kenney. My father is Gordon Lamont Kenney. His father was Gordon Daniel, son of Daniel, son Benjamin Kenney. This takes us back to 1870's. I got the date from my forefather Benjamin's Clarinet lesson book. The area of Beacon was then known as Fishkill Landing and Mattewan. Is there anyone out there who can pick up the thread from here?

    Robert Kenney robertkenney2003@yahoo.co.uk
    Hello everyone im a kenney from Glasgow in Scotland,and i would love to hear from anyone who could tell me a little about the family history.i only know the outlines so maybe some of you could fill in the blanks,apparently the name kenney possibly originates from the french name Le Ken who eventually settled in Somerset,England where the name became Kenny or Kenney sometime in the 12th century.We then settled throughout the british isles especially Ireland founding places such as Kilkenny,Letterkenney etc the kenneys must have been high up in the royal courts as Sir Nicholas Kenney was the general escheater of Ireland for Queen Elizabeth the 1st of England.Between then and now hopefully you guys could help me out too.

  • Kenneys from Kenney, IL - March 20 '103
    Katie Kenney ctkenney@uiuc.edu
    I'm interested in finding other descendents of Joe Kenney (and either his first wife, Elsa, or his second wife, Neva) who were from the little town of Kenney near Clinton, IL. Joe was my great-grandfather. In addition to my grandfather, John Harvey Kenney, he had a daughter Edith, another daughter whose name I don't know, and sons Dale and Roger. I have recently moved to central Illinois (grew up in the northeast), and I'm wondering if there are any 2nd or 3rd cousins still living in this area.

    • The Kenneys - March 08 '104
      Janiece DuPree janiece@bwsys.net
      I came across your query about Kenney cousins while I was trying to find who the cable tv provider was for Kenney. I didn't find that info, but maybe I can give you a little bit of a direction.

      I grew up in Kenney and my mom is very active in the Kenney Heritage group which has done a nice job of restoring a building on main street. If you haven't visited the building, you might want to. There is a very small museum upstairs and there is a lot of information and also some photos of Kenneys. Anyone who is a member of the Heritage group could take you up to see the items, but the woman who is more or less the curator of the museum is Kate Bruce and her phone number is 217-944-2316. Kate is the one who has filed, organized, and archived most of the items and information. She may well be able to direct you to some of the other Kenney descendents. Sadly, the only local descendent I know of passed away last year. There may be others that Kate knows of though.

      I may have given you a lot of information that you already know, but I wish you luck in your search!

      My grand father was Joe Kenney and Grandmother was Neva Kenney. My fathers name was James Dale Kenney and mothers was Ina Kenney(Copeland). Dads brothers were John, Roger and my father James Dale, or as everyone called him joe. I think the girls name was Ethel, but do not hold me to that. I can still vivadly remember me and my sister Judy, walking from frandma and grandpas house on the end of the main drag, to the drugstore and getting a bag full of cady for just a few pennies. Going to watch the blacksmith was a real blast also. If it turns out we are cousins, please email me and I will be able to tell you where to find out more about everyone Jim Kenney (0)

    William G. Bates WGB97@adelphia.net
    I am a descendant of Mollie Kenney who married my great grandfather, James Thomas Bates, in either Spalding Co, Ga or Blakely, Ga. Her father was born in Sales City, Ga (west of Blakely and almost on the Ga/Al line) but was living in Blakely while working as some official of the circuit court. Mollie (spelling on tombstone in Eustis, Fl) was born 1870 in either Sales City or Blakely and died 1959 in Altoona, Fl where James and most of is children migrated to about 1920 and where my grandfather, Raymond Harvey Bates lived until his death in 1983. We have William Kenney's father listed as Jackson Kenney with wife Sarah but have no other information on them. If anyone has anything on this family would appreciate an email. Thanks and che-ers William G. Bates <>

  • kenneys from Canada - January 12 '103
    grant james kenney gkenney@rogers.com
    Anybody know this family?

    My great grandfather was Patrick Kenney of Nanticoke, Ontario. His son, my grandfather, was James Henry Kenney of Ottawa, Ontario born in 1880 died in 1943. My father is James Curtis Kenney, born 1918 in Woodstock, Ontario raised in Ottawa, Ontario. His older brother, Gordon lives in N.Y., N.Y. His younger sister Grace lives in Toronto.

    It does seem impossible for people to spell the Kenney name. When JFK was President, it was always Kennedy. I am told that the name was Kenny and the "e" was added to make it more English because the reputation of the Irish was tough to live down. Reading Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes would give you some idea of where that reputation may have come from. We're all o.k. today though, aren't we?

    • Kenney's - March 18 '103
      Cheryl Kenny Swanson swanson@mato.com
      Hi, I was told that the Kenny spelling depended on the religion of the person in Ireland. The Kenny spelling was proestant and the Kenney spelling was cathoilc. My Great Great Grandfather came from Ireland and lived in Canada, Ontario until 1883 when they came to America. My Grandfathers name was James Henderson Kenny. They spelled their name Kenney until they came to the states and then changed it to Kenny. We have never been able to find out if there were brothers of his or other family that may have stayed in Canada. Do you know what year Patrick Kenney was born and when he came from Ireland? James was born in 1824 and we have no idea what year he came to Canada. I tend to follow up on all inguires of Kenny's hoping that I will find a lead. Thankyou for your time, and may the luck of the Irish always be with you! Cheryl (0)

    • Mark Kenney - February 14 '104
      Lori Harsh abby93@shaw.ca
      I have a great-great-great-great grandfather named Mark Kenney who arrived in Canada c.1832 and farmed in Goulbourne Co. Still trying to trace his birthplace in Ireland,DOB c. 1811-1821(depending on which census you want to believe. He had a grandson named William and it is a name that carried thru generations so assume a family name. Could this be the William Kenney's brother that you are looking for? All I know about birthplace is what his son listed on death certificate(north Ireland)which could be anything north of Dublin, but family legend has it that his wife(or mother)died on ship & he(or his father) remarried within days of disembarking. Please let me know if this matches up with anything or if my rumors sound familiar to your family rumors. Oh yeah, my bunch were listed Church of England in census records(same church as Ireland,just different geography). (0)

  • Looking for information on "Molly" Kenney - July 24 '102
    William Grover Bates WGB97@aol.com
    My great grandfather, James thomas Bates, married Molly 16 Jan 1889. We believe it was in the vicinity of Griffin, Ga. since that is where James was born and lived until he began moving around sometime after marrying Molly. They moved to several places in Georgia and Alabama (Vaughn, Blakely, Abbeville, Dothan) before finally moving to Altoona, Fl about 1921. I believe "Molly" is a nickname with her given name as possibly Mary, Dorothy, Margaret, or even a name unrelated to Molly but have not discovered any promising leads to date. James was born 10 Mar 1854 Griffin, Ga and my father relates they actually lived somewhat southeast of Griffin instead of in the "Town" area. We have no other information on Molly and looking for any help we can find. If anyone has any info, no matter how remote, would appreciate an email. Thanks and enjoy your web site.

    My father did some research about the family and he discovered an ancestor who came from County Tyrone in what is now Ulster. He settled in Pennsylvania near Brandywine. Descendents are George, William, James, and Benjamin Kenney. Our line goes through Benjamin, born 1764. Sons were John Blair Kenney, born 1794, James Kenney, born 1806, Wesley Kenney, born 1808, and William Kenney. Our line comes through James, who was a circuitrider preacher (Methodist). His sons were William, Cyrus, John Fletcher,born ?, a farmer in Loda, Illinois Benjamin, James Wesley Kenney. Our line comes through John Fletcher, whose sons were James, Cyrus, Guy Eugene, Walter Griffith, John Sidney, Fletcher Newton,Merton Dunlop,William Edward and Irvin Waldo Kenney. Our line came through William Edward, my grandfather who was a farmer and implement dealer in Paxton, IL. His sons were Harold Eugene, John Fletcher, and Mahlon Wesley Kenney, my father. I'd be happy to hear from any Kenneys who are related to this branch of the Kenney Family.

For a good GEDCOM file go to familysearch.org, hit the search button and use Cyrus Kenney in California as a starting point. There are at least 100 names listed at this site.

      Hi I just discovered your site and my be able to add to the family line. I'm afraid I don't have many specifics but I do know that there were two kenney brothers that came over from englan, one settling in Main and the other in Nova Scotia. My grandfather Frank Kenney was born in Lower Argile NS in our family home that I'm told had been there for over 150 years. After the war Frank moved to Ottawa ON where he raised his family. He had two sons and a daugter, Norman, Brian and Susan Kenney. Brian and Susan moved back to Nova Scotia and reside in Halifax. I am the son of Brian.

      I don't know anything earlier than that but I will look for some earlier records that may fill in some blanks. (0)

      Hello Kenney's. I am Jeff Kenney and live in Southern Illinois. My dad is Edward R. Kenney who grew up in Dover, New Jersey. I believe his father was a John Kenney. He also had an uncle - John Kenney and an aunt - Anne M. Kenney.(Seems the irish weren't very good with coming up with new names!). Rumor has it that my ggf imigrated from Ireland along with a large number of brothers and sisters and resided somewhere in upstate New York (possibly Albany). The same rumor says that ggf Kenney died in a railway accident sometime just after the turn of the century. Anyone with a similar tale? (0)
    • Brothers John and James Kenney? - September 03 '100
      Robin Kenney drmsmith@direct.ca
      Terry, I don't know if you have read my entry below under JAMES VINCENT KENNEY, but I am looking for more information about my ggrandfather’s siblings and parents. My ggrand-father, James Vincent Kenney was born in county Westmeath, Ireland, in 1829. He sailed for the US with his father (name unknown) and his 3 older brothers (ONE NAMED JOHN) in 1846. They landed in NY May 15th 1846. He traveled around the east coast and mid-west with his father and brother JOHN. They entered a land claim in Iowa Township and I am told this place has since been known as Kenney Grove. After James aand JOHN's father died the brothers moved to New Haven, Conn. where they learned the carpenter trade. James married Lydia Catherine Dunn in 1860 and they settled in Williamsburg Iowa, to raise their 9 children: Bernard(Lydia child from 1st marriage), John H., Elizabeth Catherine, Ann F., Mary Margaret, Julia Mary, Magdalen B., James Vincent II, and Michael Leo (my grandfather). James Vincent died in 1912 in Williamsburg. Could your ggrandfather John have been my ggrandfather's (James Vincent) brother? Do you know where he was born? If he had siblings which is most likely. Was he raised Catholic? Please let me know if there may be a connetion here.

    • Kenney's - December 02 '100
      Paul Kenney pkenney@kgw.com
      The ancient Kenney name as I understand is from O'Cionnaugh. Dates back to about 1200. The English married in and took the name around the globe. The Irish Kenney's emigrated in two batches - the first in the 1600's to Spain, Africa as well as Montreal. They were the wealthy. Then the second batch in the 1800's. They were usually the poor.

      My G-Grandfather, Thomas Herbert Kenney, emigrated from Ireland to fight for the North in the Civil war. He then settled in Ontario. One of his sons, Herbert, had two families. One in Canada, One in Michigan. I am from the Michigan gang.

      I cannot connect the ancient with Thomas. But I have the rest.

      Anything?

      I am researching the Kenney side of my family which immigrated from Ireland in the mid-1800's. My great-great grandmother (Katherine Healey Keating, born in County Leitrin, Ireland) immigrated to MA and worked as a maid for Judge Rutherford in Brookline, MA. She and her husband, Michael (of County Cork, Ireland) had three children: John, William, and Katherine. Katherine also lived in the Dorchester area after the death of her husband. Any relation, you think? (0)

My grandmother was named Wilma and she owned a restaurant for a couple decades in Fort Ashby called the Country Roads. Never met my grandfather, and I have to admit I know very little about our family's history. I've heard that we used to be called the O'Kenny's or the McKinneys, no one seems to know for sure. Also, I was down in San Antonio yesterday and was in the Alamo; one of the men who died there was a James Kenney, from Virginia. Nothing else was listed about him. Does anyone know about him? (0)

Grandfather was Thomas, Grandmother is Essie (Schofield). Essie has done tons of work on the family tree, especially Schofield unfortunately. But still has done much on the Kenney side. As a side note, on my Granmother's side, she has documentation of her Great Great Great Grandmother being burned at the stake in Ma during the witch trials of the late 1600's.

    Patricia Kenney Esposito resposit@dist214.k12.il.us
    I have recently been tracing my Kenney family ancestors. They came to the U.S. about 1850 - from Galway Co. Ireland. According to census records they were living in Manhattan N.Y.1860 - 1890's. Their specific names are as follows:
    Jeremiah Kenney b. Galway C. 1818 Mary or Bridget b. Galway C. 1820 Michael Kenney b. Galway 1845 Edward A. B. Galway 1847 d. Chicago 1912 Mary Kenney b. New York 1859 John Kenney b. New York 1861 Bridget Kenney b. N. Y. 1867
    My Great grandfather Edward Kenney was a Catholic Priest- he attended LaGrande seminary in Canada - class of 1878-79. He was pastor of St. Peters and St. St. Mary' in Dubuque Iowa. He left the church and appeared in Elgin Ill.1886. Later, he married Hattie Bouck (Elgin,Il.) and they had 7 boys. Hattie was not Catholic - consequently, both Kenney's and Bouck's disowned the couple. I would sincerely appreciate any information about this family.

    • very interesting, can Paul comment on NYC Kenney's? - July 21 '98
      Jim Kenney spoken4@erols.com
      I doubt that they are related to those of us related to Dave Kenney, manager of this web site. Origins of our U.S. roots pretty much centered around Boston. But we do seem to share the Galway Co. connection. Perhaps one of our elderly relatives, Paul Kenney, who reads this web site might recognize some of those names or be able to comment on whether any Kenney relatives from his father's generation lived in Manhatten? I'll check with my dad Edward as well. I don't have any geneology experience and our family has few pre-immigration details. Patricia, how did you get the birthdates for your Kenney's born in Ireland? Thanks, Jim (0)
  • Do you know a Sean Kenney? - June 16 '98
    Sylvia August isatech@yesic.com
    About 12 years ago I had a friend named Sean Kenney who lived in New York and was studying to be a Franciscan Priest. I live in Toronto and lost contact with him after his last visit. Sean would be about 38 years old right now and is probably a priest. I am curious to find out if you know him and how he's doing. Thanks.

      Sean M. Kenney sean@seanknney.com
      My name is Sean Kenney, but I'm not the one you're looking for. I do know of a Reverend Sean W. Kenney who lives just outside NY, in Woodbridge NJ... he lives two towns away from me) so I have seen his name in the phone book and on sites like www.anywho.com. How many Rev. Sean Kenney's can there be? I can only assume this is him. This is his phone number: 732-636-6269.

      Jim Kenney spoken4@erols.com
      We have a Sean Kenney in our family and he's about that age, but I don't think he's your Sean. He's my first cousin. He's a married man with several children and grew up in Chicago area and now lives in Southern California. I don't think he ever studied for priesthood in New York either. Sean, if you see this pipe up. Jim (0)

      You've tapped into a web site pertaining to about 100 living, directly related Kenney's. We are all descended from a Roger and Mary Kenney of Quincy Mass. who were born in Mass about 40-50 years before your grandfather (approx 1880). I'm pretty sure we're not related. None of us lived in the Philly area back in the 20's and none of us lived in Gulfport during 20th century. Jim Kenney (0)
  • Do you know this Kenney family? - May 20 '98
    Aleigh Kenney aleighk@hotmail.com
    Hello! I am looking for relatives of the John Richardson Kenney family. He was married to Alice Power Kenney. They lived in Evanston and around the northside of Chicago., Il. They also spend a great deal of time in British Colombia at a mine. They had two children: a boy, John Richardson and a girl, Muriel. My father believes the Kenney name to be Scotch-Irish. Can anyone confirm this? Can anyone trace back the family name to a city? I am John and Alice's granddaughter and I never knew them. I would love to find any relatives! Anyone? Please e-mail me. Thanks!

    • Kenney family Evanston? - July 10 '98
      Patricia Kenney Esposito resposit@dist214.k12.il.us
      Not sure if this information can help you - I read an article about Evanston Kenney's. According to the article J. H. Kenney was a builder. He came to Chicago in 1848 and built many of the finest residences in Evanston. He went to California in 1875 - and returned to Evanston in 1880. He was married to Catherine Kearney and they had four children - Mamie, Nellie, James and George.

      Don't believe we know or are related to the Evanston Kenney's. We're originally from Mass. Our Kenney descendents came from County Galway on the west coast of Ireland, opposite Dublin back in the mid 1800's. Good luck, Jim (0)
  • Can Anyone Help? - January 14 '98
    Marilyn marilyn@rehost.com
    I'm looking for a woman by the name of Frances Kenney. Kenney is her maiden name. She lived in the Oakland, California area in 1945 and was about 24 years old at that time.
    Within your family do you have an elderly female by the name of Frances who lived in or around Oakland during 1945. She is probably married now and has a different last name.
    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    • Donald Farrell Kenney - November 02 '97
      Stephen M. Kenney stevek@mtnhome.com
      Saw your web page and thought I'd drop you this line. I was just curious to see if we were related. I lost contact with my dad's side of the family many years ago. His name was Donald Farrell Kenney but everyone called him "Danny". He grew up in Clinton, Iowa. As far as I know he had two brothers one named Jerry ( I think ) and the other one was Pat. I believe Pat (and his wife Anne) are living in Rapid City, SD. If you find we're connected somehow drop me a line and let me know. Thanks, Steve Kenney Mountain Home, Arkansas(0)
