Clinton County Biographies
I - K
KEEDY, Henry J.
HENRY J. KEEDY, a well known farmer and stock raiser and prominent resident of Perry township, Clinton was born in Ross county, Ohio, June 9, 1832. John Keedy his grandfather, a native of Germany, married Martha Hinkle, also of German birth, and settled in Baltimore, where he followed the trade of cabinetmaking; later he emigrated to Virginia, settling in Morgan county, where his death occurred. Henry Keedy, son of the above and father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Baltimore, Md., and followed agricultural pursuits for his life work. He married Nancy BAILEY, daughter Of Thomas Bailey, of Virginia, to which state he had previously removed, and afterward became a resident of Ross county, Ohio, where he continued to reside for a period of six years. In 1837 he moved to Clinton county, Ind., and entered an eighty-acre tract of land in Perry township, a part of which is now in possession of the subject of this mention. Henry Keedy was a man of great industry and a successful financier. He accumulated a handsome property, including 200 acres of land, and became one of the best known and popular citizens of the township of Perry. He was a prominent member of the Methodist Protestant church, in which, at different times, he held official positions, and he was chiefly instrumental in establishing a number of local congregations in various parts of the county. The following are the names of the children born to Henry and Nancy Keedy:
Hannah M., Elizabeth, George W., Henry J., Matthew T., Sarah J., Harrison, Uriah (deceased), Lucinda R., Margaret; two infants (deceased) also were born to them.
The immediate subject of this mention was reared a farmer, to which useful calling he has since devoted his life, and he came to Clinton county with his parents when but six years of age. He received an education in the old log schoolhouse, common in the pioneer period of Indiana, and began life for himself on attaining his majority as a farmer in Perry township. When he first came to the county the settlements were few and far between, market places were remote, and the present thriving city of Frankfort was a mere hamlet of a few log huts. He remembers when the early settlers were compelled to haul their grain and other produce to La Fayette and Chicago, where they disposed of the same for insignificant prices. He has watched, with interest, the gradual development of the country, and seen Clinton take a prominent place among her sister counties of the state. Mr. Keedy has a fine farm, in the cultivation of which he displays excellent judgment, and he ranks among the best agriculturists of Perry township. Politically, he is a democrat, and as such has been active in behalf of his party's interest in a number of campaigns. In the estimation of his neighbors and friends he stands deservedly high, and few people of Perry township are as widely and favorably known.
William Henry Keedy, well known farmer of the township of Perry, is a native of Clinton county, Ind., and dates his birth from the first day of May, 1855. His wife, whose maiden name was Sarah F. Wolf, has borne him two children--Pearly M., and Ennis Ray. Mr. Keedy is the proprietor of a large, well-tilled farm, and occupies a front rank among the successful self-made men of Clinton county.
