Seeking any information on my father's family.  His father was William Walter Keenan, born about 1897.  He was the son of  Walter Keenan, born about 1864 in Minnesota and married to Katie Coleman.  Walter is the son of William (Michael?), born in Ireland around 1830 and living in Fillmore County, MN in 1860 and married to Teresa Mulholland.
I'm looking for some indication that I'm in the right group of Keenans before I commit to buying a kit to test my father.  So far I am not finding any death information for either Walter or William.
Any of these names ringing a bell with anyone?  I'm looking forward to responses.  Thanks in advance!
