We have Samuel Kenan b.1824 in Ireland & wife Margaret Johnston moving into Cincy,OH about 1865. Apparently emigrated to Boston about 1849 where children were born. He appears in an 1860 WVA census with a Bernard Kenan b.1781(probably his father). Can find no death record for Bernard. This family does not appear to be connected with the NC Kenans. Samuel's childrens' names:Norman George, Heber, Cecelia, Bernard, Alfred, Samuel. Any connections out there?
