Freeman Keene, the 6th of ten children, was born 6/8/1794 to Mishach & Kezia Keen. He and his wife Abigail Robinson, dau. of Alvan? Robinson & Lydia Soule, had 7 children:
Lydia Soule Keen b. 8/9/1818, Stephen Robinson Keen b. 2/26/1821, Molser? Keen 2nd b. 6/28/1823, William Soule Keen b. 5/18/1826, John Flavel Keen b. 9/6/1829, Freeman Keen Jr. b. 11/30/1831, Clara French Keen b. 12/18/1833 and Columbia Abigail Keen b. 1/29/1837. Their is no recordings of any of the children dying young and it appears that all the sons didn't start any families in Sumner. You can request photocopies of the written records, pages 26 & 135 of vol# 1 of their Book of Vital Records for a small fee from the Sumner Town Clerk, 633 Main St. Sumner, ME 04292 (207) 388-2866. I've ALWAYS found them to be very kind and helpful. Ryan
