Richard Kemp & Wife
For all of you that have wondered about who Richard Kemp married in 1745, I think I may have a partial answer. Maryland Marriages, 1634-1777 has him marrying Mary Green Sept 24, 1745. The U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900 has Richard marrying Susannah Piggot in 1745. Neither is on both lists. Both are claimed by many to be the parents of Moses Kemp b.1749. You can find both lists at Ancestry.com. I don't yet know which is the parents of Moses. Yet. Maybe some of you have something that might help clear up this mystery. DNA testing has shown that Richard b.1715 is a proven blood relative. Which wife is in my line is still a mystery.
