DATE: 11 Jan 1997 & 18 Jan 1997
NAME: Linda Head Grafton
I am looking for information about my gg-grandmother, MARTHA KEENAN who married JOHN ALFRED MATTINGLY in 1855. She had two children, MARY HELEN MATTINGLY and IDA MATTINGLY. John Alfred was killed in a saloon in Rodney, Jefferson Co., MS in 1857. Martha was pregnant with her second child at the time. She later married a Mr. TRIMBLE and had a son ADRIAN TRIMBLE (I know that line). Upon Mr. Trimble's death she moved north (maybe Arkansas) to care for her deceased sister's children. She soon married her brother-in-law "because it didn't look right" to the neighbors for her to be living there and not married. My problem: I cannot seem to find any information about Martha from before she married John Alfred Mattingly or after she left this area. I have information on the Mattingly family from 1664 if anyone is interested.
I visited the cemetery in Fayette where John Alfred MATTINGLY is buried and found nearby (J. A. M. is buried between them) these KEENAN folks: FRANCIS KEENAN, b 7 May 1792 in County Down, Ireland, d. 19 Nov 1857 in Natchez; MARTHA KEENAN w/o Francis Keenan, b. 20 Sept 1800 Washington, MS, d. 23 May 1822; MARY ANN KEENAN w/o Francis Keenan, b. 4 July 1818, d. 11 Apr 1852. There was also MARTHA THEODOSIA KEENAN, daughter of TIK and WEA, b 5 Mar 1850, d 25 Nov 1852. I speculate that my Martha was the daughter of Francis and Mary Ann Keenan as she was probably born around 1835 (family rumors). The visit to the cemetery was most informative. I also visited the STEPHENS cemetery at Dennis Crossroads near Red Lick and will have some inquiries about that later. Any help and any new relations will be appreciated.
