(Daredevil I#215 (fb) - BTS) - Timmy Red Moon grew up on a Cherokee tribe reservation in Arizona. He heard stories of the Keeno family, including Rance Keeno, terrorizing and murdering his ancestors and trying to take their land. When the modern Mr. Keeno built a dam on tribal lands, then sought to build a nuclear reactor, the Cherokee fought him in court, claiming they owned the rights to the land. Timmy heard from his aunt, who worked at the hotel, that a New York attorney named Matt Murdock was coming to Arizona, working for Keeno. Timmy inherited an old family map, supposedly a guide to a letter from former President Chester Arthur that would insure the Native land rites.
(Daredevil I#215) - Timmy picked Matt up at the airport and convinced him to go for a ride. He explained his people's history with Keeno and showed him the dam, then explained that if the reactor were built there, instead of on a suitable site a few miles away, it would irreparably damage the eco-system. Murdock didn't promise to help, and Timmy walked off, disappointed. Keeno's men assaulted Timmy, but the hero Daredevil saved him, then the hero asked about the map and went with Timmy to find the letter under an old arrowhead rock in the desert. Timmy, astounded with Daredevil's powers, ducked as Daredevil helped him avoid gunfire from Mr. Keeno. Keeno used one grenade to destroy Timmy's truck, then another to trap Timmy and Daredevil in an old cave. Daredevil escaped through an underground river, defeating Keeno.
Comments: Created by Denny O'Neil and David Mazzucchelli.
Timmy Red Moon presumably was freed from the cave by Daredevil, then used the paper from President Arthur to secure his land rites. His ancient grandfather also gave Daredevil a mystic dream, helping the hero have guidance to finish Two-Gun Kid's mission from years before.

Rance Keeno and his ancestor have no known connections to:
(Daredevil I#215 (fb) - BTS) - The heir to Rance Keeno, Mr. Keeno sought to build a nuclear reactor on his old family land in Arizona, but the Cherokee tribe there claimed they had ownership of the property. Keeno built a damn to harness power for the reactor, then Keeno put his lawyers on the case, then went to New York to recruit more legal help.
(Daredevil I#215) - Keeno secured the services of Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock, giving them the intel they needed.
(Daredevil I#215 - BTS) - In Arizona, Keeno sent his men to attack Timmy Red Moon, the Cherokee spokesman against the reactor, but Daredevil saved Timmy. Red Moon argued that Keeno could build his reactor in another site, one that wouldn't damage the ecosystem, but Keeno didn't want to eat the costs of planning a new location.
(Daredevil I#215) - When Timmy and Daredevil went out into the desert to hunt for an old presidential letter, Keeno and his men followed them with guns. They opened fire on the two men, then used a grenade to blow up Red Moon's truck, before using a second grenade to trap Daredevil and Red Moon in an old cave. Daredevil snuck out through an underground river, then defeated Keeno with a billy club to the head.

(Daredevil I#215 (fb) - BTS) - Rance Keeno was a businessman in the Wild West who wanted to acquire particular Cherokee ground to use as grazing land. President Chester Arthur sent a letter to the Cherokee that awarded the land to the Cherokee, and the letter had been hidden, but a map was to be delivered to the Cherokee to tell them where the letter was; Keeno heard the information. Keeno instructed his men to intercept the letter so that he could claim the land himself.
(Daredevil I#215 (fb) ) - Keeno's men attacked the Cherokee, killing one, but the Two-Gun Kid broke up the fight. Keeno complained to the sheriff that the Cherokee had started the fight, and one was arrested. In court, defense attorney Matt Hawk caught Keeno in several lies and the case was dropped by the judge. Keeno and a friend followed a Cherokee and Two-Gun Kid on their search for the map, and tried to kill them with a stick of dynamite, causing a cave-in. Keeno and his friend waited outside with guns to shoot the men, but Two-Gun Kid disarmed them first. The letter was lost, but the Cherokee maintained their land.
