  • ID: I1148
  • Name: Josiah Keene
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: JUN 1658 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass
  • Death: BET 1728 AND 1732 in Pembroke, Mass
  • Event: Other Mayflower Descendent
  • Note:
    We have in our notes that Lydia Keen was taken into the First Church in Marshfield on 2 May 1708, and that nine of her children were baptized there on 24 October, 1708.

    Josiah, Jr. and his family lived in Marshfield, in Duxbury, and perhaps in Pembroke since Pembroke was part of Marshfield until 1712. The towns of Duxbury, Hingham, Pembroke, and Marshfield are near each other in southeastern Massachusetts and may not have kept separate records in the early days. Josiah, Jr. bought 9 acres next to his father's "range" on the southerly side of Pudding Brook, we assume in Duxbury. Another note of interest was, "Josiah Keen, Jr. and Elnathan Weston with 5 others at the March 7th Town Meeting, 1709/10, entered protest against all the acts made at Town Meeting in Duxborough, Jany 30th 1709/10 for dividing the town's Commons, the said meeting being continued by adjournment till the 7th of March above said."
