  1. Bernard was a cousin of my grandfather, Francis F. Keating,of Danbury, CT.
    His son, Bernard, used to come to our home in New Milford, CT and a foundation was set up called “The Keating Foundation” which helped some of us pay for college.

  2. The work effort below includes this Bernard J Keating and several others (including wives Katherine Crotty (1843–1922) and Hannah Anna (Annie) Keane (1857–1927) mentioned on this site. The obit of Bernard’s Brother Michael P Keating (1853–1927) obit is on this site also.
    Information Found About The John & Mary Foley Keating Family

  3. Thanks for the information on Bernard’s family!

    I’ve always found the Fairfield County Keatings of particular interest as my immigrant ancestor and his wife briefly settled in Stamford around 1855 before moving south to Maryland. I wonder if any of the Keating families up there are distant cousins? Any chance any of Bernard’s descendants have done a DNA test on Ancestry.com, MyHeritage.com, or uploaded a test to GedMatch.com?

    Thanks Again!
    John
