Dorinda W. Bloss has been researching and recording her Keen family genealogy since she spent a long, hot summer in 1967 listening to her grandmother's stories. With charts, profiles, stories, photos, documents, and over 40 years of work, she's documented the history of the Keen family in connection with founding Pilgrims Richard Warren and Edward Fuller, leaving room for others to contribute their research as well.
The Keen Family and the Mayflower Beginning documents the family from the time the Mayflower Pilgrims landed at Plimouth, expands on how the Keen family played a role in their history (as well as the history of Maine and New York), and also records how the legacy and principles of the Pilgrims are perpetuated by their descendants today.
In addition, the book includes research on the Logan family, the Beplat family, the Bloss family and their Indiana roots, as well as the author's family connections to Greenwood Cemetery and Cyrpress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn. Appendices. Indexed. Over 200 photos. All genealogical information is authenticated.
