A forgotten Adair Co. war hero: John Samuel Keen, late of Columbia

The United States posthumously awarded Adair Countian EM1c John Samuel Keen the Purple Heart, and his name appears on the Tablets of the Missing at Manila American Cemetery, Manila, Philippines. Though born in Cumberland County, he moved to Adair County as a youth and was a resident of Adair County when he joined the United States Navy.


On this date 75 years ago -- November 13, 1942 -- Adair County resident John Samuel Keen died halfway around the world in a war not of his making.

A native of Cumberland County, young Keen moved to Columbia in 1924 with the rest of his family: his father Travis, stepmom Lyda, sister Lou Sarah, and brothers Joe B. and Arnold. After Travis died in 1926, the others remained in Columbia and were enumerated as residents of High Street when the census taker came calling in the spring of 1930. By the time Lou Sarah died toward the end of July that year, however, John Samuel, then about 21, had joined the Navy.

Poetry by Robert Stone: A Word List Sonnet

Where voices silenced yearned : a word list sonnet
What pilgrim having Mercury at hand
delays departure for not having map
with every metric of suggested land
where souls that seek find shrines where they may nap,

What bones demanding rest are urged go on
ignoring frozen hope and freezing feet
regaled with sunny tales and coming dawn
where gems of truth with old ways will compete.

What breath releasing pent up trouble sore
requests no further revelation sure
but reassures the heart that what before
where voices silenced yearned will be no more.

What creature holding forth on way first made
but wishes bad will fade and good be stayed.
~ Robert Stone, 12 November 2017
Bone – Departure –Frozen – Gem – Map – Mercury – Metric – Pilgrim – Soul – Truth
~~ These are the words for 2016 November Poetry in the Boro, Murfreesboro. This is the second time I have used these ten words.
