Maceo and Charles Vines have shared a passion for the Family Tree research. Maceo contributed the 1870 and 1880 Texas census documents, which he obtained from the Mormon Church Family Research Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. These documents were essential in tracing Lewis Keeling's vital information including birth location, date of birth, age, spouse, and children.

Maceo has participated in the last several Vines-Keeling Family reunions. Here is Maceo during the Family introductions at the 2003 Vines-Keeling Family Reunion. He is shown here expressing his views on family values, unity and the importance of supporting the youth.
