Joseph Kemmerling married Mahilda Einhart in December, 1866 in Chicago, Illinois. He died May 20, 1887 in Chicago - except that one source of family lore had him and his wife returning to Germany and being killed in a train wreck. I don't know which is correct. One of his sons, William A. Kemmerling, married Minnie Bell Taliaferro McCord ( she was a widow ) around 1900 ( my guess ) and they settled in or near Ripley, Tennessee. They had 5 children, one of whom was Clara Lucile ( born 07/08/1909 ). She married my father, James Martin Harlow, March 14,1939 in Crittendon County, Arkansas, and I was born January 23, 1940 in Memphis, Tenn.
