I am also having problems with my Kemmett's.
This is what I have found out.
The 1870 Census of Wisconsin list:
Jas Kemmett age 32 married born in Ireland and living in Rock Co., Wisc. near Janesville.
Michael Kemmitt age 36 married born in Ireland living in Rock Co., Wisc. near Janesville.
Thomas Kemmitt age 42 married born in Ireland and living in Rock Co., Wisc. near Janesville.
Besty Kemmitt Tansey married John Martin Tansey.Besty is my g-g-grandmother.
The Kemmitt's were Catholic.I have been to the Catholic church on Holmes street in Janesville.There is a book of marriages and christening.The Kemmitt are there!
Note two of the boys wifes were born in Ireland.
The Janesville Wisconsin Gazette Death index Volume I 1845-1889 by Rock County Genealogical Society 1991. List:
Eleanor Kemmitt death as March 15, 1885. She was 89 years old.
Mrs John Kemmitt death as August 21, 1887. she was 33 years old, and her madian name was Kavanaugh.
I have cousin that has a letter from a John Kemmitt.I think his is Eleanor's husband.
I can go back to the library and get a copy of the Census and scan it and e-mail it to you.I will list the children and wifes first name.
