Roxanne, My grandfather, Ancel Kernan, was born in Missouri in either 1898 or 1899.He resided in Ecorse, Michigan throughout his life. I don't know if he is the one you are looking for, but I will check with one of my uncles who may know where he was born. We are very confused about his early years and are trying to piece it together. I will try to find out more tonight and communicate with you tomorrow. We are trying to find more information on my great grandmother and great grandfather and just maybe we are looking at the same family line.
