Michael R. Keeney, son of Moses and Frances Harris Keeney, was born in 1804 in Greenbrier county, then Virginia. He came to Cabin Creek as a boy in the early 1800's and became a farmer and lumberman.

The Keeney Family came to Cabin Creek about 1832-1833 when they purchased a 3000 acre tract of land from William Grant. This parcel of land would include all of what was to become the town of Eskdale many years later. When Moses Keeney died, the land was divided between his sons. William, Foster and Moses would have the southern half that would become Eskdale. The others, David, Michael and Stires Keeney would receive the northern portion.

He married in May 1831 to Elizabeth Ann Gatewood, daughter of Ranson G. and Elizabeth Burks Gatewood.
Michael died in 1875 at age 71 and was buried at Ohley Cemetery, on Cabin Creek.
