Henry B. Kemp (1731/1736/1743 – February 15, 1819<) [1790 USC/WNC] married Dinah Unknown (? - ?) ~1756.He may have been born in Queen Annes Co., MD (?) / Orange Co., NC (?).He emigrated prior to April 1745 with his father Richard to Johnston Co., NC. After Wake County was created from Johnston, Cumberland and Orange Counties, Henry, about 1804 - 1806, migrated from Wake Co., NC, to Wilson Co., TN, and then later to the Defeated Creek area of Smith Co., TN.Some sources have the migration beginning from Granville Co., NC, which was just north of Wake Co., NC.He died in Smith Co., TN.
The extent of Henry's siblings is completely unknown; the extent of his issue is not definitively known and I would appreciate any help in adding to what is known about this family - Henry's spouse and her parents; Henry's siblings, siblings' spouses, parents and children; better birth, marriage and death dates; birth, childhood, marriage, life and death locations; etc...Here is what I think I know; other than John Kemp, I know the children of these Kemps - I certainly would appreciate learning any missing information on Henry B. Kemp's family.If you have a lot of info, I can either send you what I have and you can see what is missing or different, or you can send me what you have and I will cross check.I would be happy to share the Kemp data I have.
Henry Kemp’s children born in NC who remained in NC and did not migrate to TN included:
John Kemp (~1757 - ?), born in NC - This is all I know of him.
Jesse Kemp (~1772 - ~1813), born in NC, married Mary Fullager (~1763 - ~1840), her parents unknown, ~Oct. 1783.They had 13 children.
Henry Kemp’s children born in NC who migrated to TN with him included:
Rebecca Kemp (~1755 - ~1833) was born in Caswell Co., NC and died in Wilson Co., TN.On 20 Jun. 1781, in Wake Co., NC, she married 1)Roger Reece Jr. (1751/1760 - 1798), son of Roger and Fanny Reece, born in Caswell Co., NC, 20 June 1781 in Wake Co., NC; they had six children.Roger and Sarah Reece (Richard Kemp’s wife) were siblings.On 4 Nov. 1799, Rebecca married 2)Fielding Neal in Granville Co., NC, his life dates and parents unknown.(This is the same day that her brother Richard Kemp married Sarah Reece, sister of her late husband Roger!)
Murphy Kemp (21 Mar. 1770 – 1851/1860) was born in Granville Co., NC and married Sarah Seay (22 Apr. 1775 - <1825), her parents unknown.They had four sons and five daughters.
Burrell P. Kemp Sr. (~1760/1771 – 1 Sep. 1827) was born in NC/VA and married Nancy Foster/Fauster/Fouster (1765/1775 – 1835) on 15 Dec. 1791 [WCNCMR], in Wake Co., NC, her parents unknown. He died in Cainsville, Wilson Co., TN, she in Scott Co., IL.(Nancy Foster’s parents may have been John and Maria Johnston Foster.)They had four sons and five daughters.
Richard Kemp (1774 – 1850<) was born in NC, was literate and married Barbara (Sarah) Reece (~1780 - <1875), born in Caswell Co., NC, daughter of Roger and Fanny Reece, on 4 November 1799 [GCNCMR] in Granville Co., NC, marriage bond 5303.Roger (Rebecca Kemp’s husband) and Sarah Reece were siblings.They had three sons and two daughters.
Solomon Kemp (1782 – 1861/1869), born in Wake Co., NC, married twice, first to Judah (Juda) Lankford (~1784 - ?), daughter of William Lankford and Amanda Stone, on 7 Feb. 1801 [GCNCMR] in Granville Co, NC, then to Hannah (1788 - ?), also from NC.Solomon and Judah had four sons and five daughters.
In the 1790 NC Census, these Kemps were located in these central NC counties.Don't know who Joseph, William and John of Cumberland were, but lilely they were kin to Henry - your help here would be much appreciated.Richard of Chatham Co. was likely Henry's father and Jesse, John and Richard of Wake Co. were likely Henry's sons.
Thank you all for your consideration,
