I recently moved to the greater Washington DC area and had a son. I live only a couple of hours from the northern neck of Virginia where the Kenners came in around 1636. I was wondering if there were other Kenners Kinners in same area who might be interested in visiting some of the places related to the Kenner family.
For example this Saturday I will be looking for Capt. Howson Francis Kenner tomb. Here is what I know:
Died: 24 MAY 1778 Howard Grove Place near Somerville, Virginia. 227281/2 mile w. Somerville, St. Rt. 610.The tombstone of Capt. Howson Kenner lies deep in the woods, on the Howard Grove place, about three fourths of a mile east of "Lawyer's Rest" near Somerville, in Fauquier County. From white (or gold) Ridge northwest about a mile on Route #616 to two big chestnut trees on the right at a woods road; thence on the left follow a C.C.C. road through the pines northwest 350 yards and you will see the tombstone about 15 steps north of the road. A large hickory, a walnut, a dead persommon and a double poplar tree stand near by.
"This Drery Vault Stranger Contains the Bod of Capt Howson Kenner Who Descended To the Dust In A Good Old Age for He Saw from His Loins the third Genrat. He departed hence 24 May 1778 age 66. This stone from a sece of his goodness is humbly dedicated to his memory by his youngst son Rodham Kenner."
