I have Keenan's and Berry's in my line. My gr grandparents were John James Keenan and Mary Berry from Cumberland, ENG. They came to the US originally about 1880 and lived in southern PA. They returned to Cockermouth, Cumberland, ENG only to return about 1910 to settle in the Rochester, NY area.
Drop me an email at email@example.com if this is a match.
