The Keener Family
The Tenmile Country by Howard Leckey

When Betty Spicer was released from captivity amoung the Indians, she related the events of June 5,1774, the day on which her parents and five brothers and sisters were killed by the Indians, and she and her brother, William Spicer were carried off into captivity. She told how the Indian Chief Logan with another Indian called The Snake left the scene of the massacre and went directly west, where they met and killed a man named Keener. Various family traditions have identified this man as the father of Sebastion Keener or David Keener, but it is now definitely evident that both these traditions are incorrect. Both these men were living at a period of ten or more years after this event.

I assume this to be John Keener. jf

Haustmælingen (gnr. 85)

Asbjørn Syversen og kona hans, Inger Svendsdotter, valde å skifte med borna sine medan båe foreldra var i live, og den 25. April i 1733 var det så skifte i ?Høstmellingen?. Ved dette skifte vart jordegodset i garden verdsett til 150 rd, og arvebuet utgjorde brutto 214 rd. og netto 158 rd. Arvingane ved skiftet var dei 2 borna i ekteskapet og dessutan ein Alf Olsen. Borna var to døtre, og av dei var Eli gift med Lars Christensen og budde på Haustmælingen. Søstera Marit var og gift, nemleg med Arne Iversen Giørlien.
Den nye husbonden, Lars Christensen, var ein driftig og dugande kar som sette sterke merke etter seg på den gamle garden. Vi skal her ta med litt frå livssoga hans: Lars Haustmælingen, som vi her kallar han, var altså gift med dottera på garden Eli Asbjørnsdtr., og dei fekk fleire born. Det var Asbjørn f. 1729-30, Christen f. 1732, Gunhild f. 1734, Inger f. 1736, død som barn, Kari f. 1738, Inger f. 1740. I eit skjøte frå same året som det var skifte, altså i 1733, går det tydeleg fram at Lars alt da åtte heile garden Haustmælingen av skyld 1 hud.

Av 14. April 1745 er eit auksjonsskjøte som gjeld Haustmælingen under Langset av skuld 3 skinn. ?Leilendingen eller brukeren Christen Søndre Langset? fekk da skjøte på dette bruket ?tilhørende Lillehammer anneks? for 140 rd. Tre år seinare gav i 1748 Christen Langset skjøte til sonen Even Christensen ?paa engelandet Høstmælingen, skyld 3 skind? for 100 rd. To år etter vart det i 1750

oppsett ei skriftleg kontrakt mellom grannane i Søre Ål om sameige og sambruk i hemrastene. For garden Haustmælingen var det framleis Lars som skreiv under. Kontrakten er elles avskrive for dette verket under garden Breisett. ? Etter å ha vore eigar og brukar av Haustmælingen av skyld 1 hud gav så i 1760 Lars Christensen skjøte til eldste sonen sin Asbjørn Larsen og kona hans Kjersti Amundsdotter og arvingar på ?grd. Høstmælingen skyldende 1 hud? for 300 rd. + føderåd til foreldra. Men ulykka var ute, og i 1764 døde husfrua Kjersti Amundsdotter etter at ho dagar før hadde født ein son, som vart døypt Amund.

17 .Record of her birth came from UlS. Evangelical Lutheran Church Records of America, 1875-1940, North Dakota, Portand, Brufat Lutheran.

27 "One has a daunting task in sorting out the various Smith families in seventeenth century New England. Merideth Colket, in his classic book Founders of Early American Families, 1985, lists 43 Smith immigrants. The author started his research with his ancestor Sylvanus Smith, who married Lydia Clark in 1759 and lived in Hawley, MA,before removing to Dover (now Westlake), OH, in 1818. Sylvanus'unusual name made it easier to identify his parents who were Jonathan and Anna (Chipman) Smith. For earlier generations, Donald Lines Jacobus provided the link back to Richard Smith of Wethersfield, CT, in his Richard Smith of Wethersfield published in The American Genealogist (25[1949]: 126),
hereinafter cited as Jacobus. Further clues to his family and ancestry in England are found in The English Ancestry of Richard Smith of Wethersfield, Connecticut, by Roderick Bissel Jones in The New England Historical Genealogical Register, (128[1974]:136)."

34 11 March 2017: A very interesting finding:
New South Wales Death Certificate for Mary McBride, died 18 November 1858, Jilks Building, Kent Street, Sydney. Informant was her daughter, Ann Tyrrell of the same address. Mary is listed as a widow, female, 58 yrs old. Died of English Cholera. Parents listed as Walter Thompson and Margaret Green. She was buried 20 November 1858 in Catholic Cemetery. States she was born in County Fermanagh, Ireland, 3 years in New South Wales. Also states she was married at age 28 in County Donegal to Patrick McBride, deceased 15 (?) years. Living Children of marriage listed are: Margaret, age 28, Ann, age 24, and Rosa age 22. It "fit" quite well, except who are these children: Margaret, age 28, and Rosa, age 22 are not listed on any census with the family. There is an Ann or Nancy McBride listed in the census so this one fits. But this could all be quite coincidental!

12 Jan 2018: I do not believe this is the same family. There is a not-very-well-documented tree on Ancestry stating that Ann 14 yrs and sister Margaret 17 yrs arrived on the "Inchinnan" as Irish Famine orphans, and that their father Patrick died 1848 in Omagh, Ireland. If that is indeed the case, they cannot be the same family noted in the 1851 census.

37 12/24/2016: From this site,

GUSTAF C. HOFOS, a leading farmer of Bear Creek township, Ransom county, is the owner of three hundred and seventy-five acres of prairie land, on which he conducts general farming. He has made a comfortable home, by earnest and persistent effort, and is well known in his community for his industrious habits and practical ideas. His home is located on section 33, his original homestead farm, and he is enabled to enjoy the comforts which he well merits. Our subject was born in Solor, near Kongs Vinger, Norway, September 27, 1848, and was the tenth in a family of twelve children born to Ole and Inger (Noer) Hofos. When about seventeen years of age he was apprenticed to learn the cabinetmakers' trade. After attaining his majority he came to America and worked at his trade in Decorah, Iowa, nine years. He went to Fargo, Dakota, in the fall of 1880, and after working at his trade there three years took a homestead farm, and the following year went with his family to reside thereon. He has added to his possessions by purchase, and his estate is one of the well-improved farms of Bear Creek township. Our subject was married, in 1881, to Miss Christie Myhre. Mr. and Mrs. Hofos are the parents of the following children : Inga ; Oscar ; Carl, deceased : Charlotte ; Gertie ; Ovidie, deceased ; Ida ; Gilbert ; Grace and Otto. Mr. and Mrs. Hofos have adopted one son, Carl Myhre. Mr. Hofos is a member of the Lutheran church. He has been called upon to serve his township as school director, and has been township clerk since the organization of the township. Politically he is a Populist, and stands stanchly for the principles of his party. He is a man of enlightened views, and keeps pace with current events and advocates reform movements. He is now a member of the Populist county central committee, and has attended as a delegate numerous county and state conventions. He is deservedly held in high esteem by his associates, and labors earnestly for the better interests of his community.
