WARNING
Most of these do not cite sources and are known to contain erroneous information.
Use for clues only.

 

Below are some of the publications frequently cited by researchers. Descriptions, if known, are included as well as where items can be located or purchased. Several are listed in the Family History Library Catalog (LDS) and available on film. There are many more publications listed in their catalog at familysearch.org. Use their Surname search feature at the catalog site and enter surname variations.

Bell, Edwin W[allace] [b. 1908] and Lillan [Lilian] M. B[eckwith] Maxwell [b. 1878]. ISRAEL KENNY, HIS CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES. (1944) 120p. May be available at Quintin Publications; also listed in the Family History Library Catalog (LDS); entry states "Israel Kenny was born in Ireland, probably at Belfast. He married Susannah Hood in 1763 at Topsfield, Massachusetts. They had fourteen children, 1764-1792. The family joined a group from Massachusetts that immigrated to New Brunswick to settle on vacated French land and settled at Maugerville, Sunbury County, New Brunswick in 1767. Israel Kenny was drowned in the St. John River near Oromocto, New Bruswick in 1791. The Kenny surname spelling was later changed to Kenney and some in the family now spell their surname Kinney. Descendants lived in New Brunswick, Maine, Ontario, British Columbia, Washington, California and elsewhere." The catalog entry implies title might also be known as ISRAEL KENNY AND HIS DESCENDANTS and indicates "Endorsed by the York-Sunbury Historical Society, Inc." Kenney researcher Jeff Green reports that before discovering his correct line he researched Israel's line. Green questions the Ireland connection, saying "It has been stated in everything I've read for this Israel of New Brunswick, that he was a Loyalist that fled to Canada with a large contingent of other Loyalists." Green states there were few, if any, known Irish loyal to the Crown of England during that period. See also Green's The Four Israels of MA. Robertson's 1947 book (see below) says Israel is reported to connect to the Henry Kinne of MA line but later defers to Bell's version. The Ireland locale is also inconsistent with the description below under Hinckley stating Israel is a descendant of Henry Kinne of MA.

Cutter, William Richard, [editor], GENEALOGICAL AND FAMILY HISTORY OF CENTRAL NEW YORK : A Record Of The Achievements Of Her People In The Making Of A Commonwealth And The Building Of A Nation. Baltimore, Md. (year? ca. 1900?) : Reprinted for Clearfield Co. by Genealogical Pub. Co., 1994. 3 v. (listed in Library of Congress Catalog). KINNEY information in Vol. III, p. 1299 [about 2 p of information]. Brief mention of Henry Kinne, [descendants?] Daniel, Jonathan, Theophilus; family of Joseph Kinney 1755 CT - 1841 PA (his 4th generation descendant resided in NY). This information is also on CD (information at Genealogy.com) titled: Early New York Families, 1600s-1900s, Family History of Central NY, Vol. III, Central New York Family Histories.

Doane, Alfred Alder [A. A.][1855-1918] THE KENNEY GENEALOGY. "Reprinted from the Yarmouth Herald, August 17, 1909. Everett, Mass. "13p. May be available at Quintin Publications; also listed in the Family History Library Catalog (LDS); entry states " Heman Kenney (d.1775) married Mercy Nickerson and immigrated (with his brother, Nathan) from Massachusetts to Barrington, Nova Scotia about 1761. Descendants lived in Nova Scotia and elsewhere." [A few WorldConnect trees link Heman to the Thomas line. See also remarks under “Nathan Kinne of Nova Scotia, Canada” in the last Robertson entry below.]  This line is associated with the line covered in Robertson’s NEGHR item: Keeney, Keny Family of Milton, Mass., and Nova Scotia, Canada NEGHR 108:113 (1954)

Hinckley, Mabel Gould Demers. KENNEY - KINNEY FAMILY. (1969) [about 20 pages]
Family History Library Catalog (LDS); entry states: "John Kenney was born in England, the son of Sir Thomas Keney of Kings Lynne, Norfolk, England. He and his wife, Sarah Cheever (d. 1674), were married in England. They were the parents of at least six children. He was and innkeeper at Boston and died in 1670. Record lists children and some grandchildren for each generation but chiefly follows line of descent to Israel Kenney (1731-1791). He married Susannah Hood in 1763. They had fourteen children. The family lived at Topsfield, Massachusetts, where their oldest children were born but immigrated to Maugerville, New Brunswick, before the Revolutionary War. A Loyalist, he served with British forces during the Revolution. Children and grandchildren lived in New Bruswick and elsewhere." Note that the above description of Israel's ancestry is inconsistent with the Ireland birth statement in item under Bell.

Keeney, Roscoe C. - See entries below; some publications include information about lines of Thomas of England, Henry of MA, etc.

     Keeney, Roscoe C. [b. 1922]. 2,597 KEENEY RELATIVES A Genealogical Record of Keeney Origins in America, With Special Attention to Those Who Came into West Virginia. Parsons, W. Va. : McClain Printing Co. (1978). 140p.
Family History Library Catalog (LDS); entry states: "Keeney families lived in England and Scotland before immigrating to America from Ireland. William Kinie/Keeney/Keney/Kinney lived in Massachusetts as early as 1633. Stires Jade Keeney (1813-ca. 1860) was the son of Moses and Frances Harris Keeney who married in 1789. Descendants and relatives lived in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kansas, Iowa and elsewhere."

     Keeney, Roscoe C. Keeney Update. Cedar Grove, W. Va. Semiannual updates; Vol. 1 (1983). Family History Library Catalog (LDS); entry states: "Includes information on the various American branches of the Keeney family, genealogical tables, personal biographies and other information."

 Kinne, Emerson. HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF A BRANCH OF THE FAMILY OF KINNE. [Syracuse, N.Y. Masters & Stone] (1881) 97p. May be available at Quintin Publications. Descendants of Cyrus Kinne (1746-1808) of Onondaga Co., NY, (Cyrus Kinne a descendant of Henry "Kenney" of Salem, MA). Also listed in the Family History Library Catalog (LDS).

Kinne Historical and Genealogical Society. HENRY KINNE (OF SALEM, MASS.) AND HIS DESCENDANTS IN CONNECTICUT. (1886) 12p. [Press of Rufus Adams, 167 Broadway, N.Y.] May be available at Quintin Publications.   It is also known as the next item:

Kinne Historical and Genealogical Society. KINNEY, KENNEY, KENE FAMILY. Descendants of Henry Kene who lived in Salem (now Denvers), Massachusetts in 1651. [no date]. Family History Library Catalog (LDS). It appears under the title KINNEY, KENNEY, KENE FAMILY on LDS film; probably because the cover/title page is missing, but the remainder is identical to the above 1886 item. Written on the copy of the LDS film item is "Presented by E. Mabel Kinney Amboy. Ill. Feb. 17 '24" . The LDS filmed this item at the Iowa State Historical Society, Polk County Des Moines, Iowa.

Kinney, Basil Elroy. KINNEY NATION. Hallowell Press: Hallowell, ME, 1963. 107 pages. Publisher: Hallowell Press (January 1, 1963) ASIN: B0007EXZRE [Amazon.com ID number but they do not have this book]. Need description.

Kinney, Basil Elroy. BY THE NAME OF KINNE: Ancestors and descendants of Nathan Kinne of Preston, Ct. & Norton [sic], N.S. 323 pages. Publisher: B.E. Kinney] (January 1, 1992). ASIN: B0006OUBXQ [Amazon.com ID number but they do not have this book]. It is likely Norton is a typo for Horton. Others cite this as: Kinney, Basil E., Dawn L. (Hicks) Kinnie By The Name Of Kinne, Ancestors and Descendants of Nathan Kinnie of Preston, Connecticut and Horton, Nova Scotia. According to Kinney researcher Diane Murach, Horton [not Norton] Township, Kings County, Nova Scotia, was first settled about 1760 by New Englanders (most from Connecticut) after the Acadians were run out. The next wave of settlers came with the Loyalists.
Note.  I am told that Basil's genealogy is: Henry of MA>Thomas & Knight>Thomas & Cox>Nathan (1727) & Tubba>Thomas (1754) & Copp>Converse (1802) & Milburn.

Additional remarks about Robertson:

The above listings for Robertson do not include these "Other and Prospective Publications [by Robertson]" mentioned in Robertson 1942 and/or Robertson 1947. The 1947 publication indicates some of the below lines will be included as part of a future Vol. II of the 1942 publication:

Alexander Keny of Weathersfield, Connecticut and Descendants *

Israel Kenney of New Brunswick, Canada, if his genealogy is not published previously by E. W. Bell of Vancouver, Canada. [In Additions and Corrections (p. 181) of Robertson 1947, she indicates that after the book was "set up" Bell published Israel Kenney of New Brunswick. See above Bell entry]
