Re: Kennards in York Pa or Harford MD
First--There is a high school called Kennard-Dale right across the MD-PA line in York County, PA.There are obviously Kennard's in the area but the school has no idea why or for whom it was named.I live close by.
I am also a Kennard descendent but have not been able to find the parents of my Richard Kennard b abt 1798 and d 1872 in Baltimore.He lived or is suppose to have lived his entire life in Baltimore but you know how family stories go.He is in the 1830 census for Baltimore living with another male about his own age.Also two females how from there ages are either wives or sisters.I think wives since my Richard would have been married.They other people could, however be her relations.
I have found Kennard in Harford--Baltimore County very early but most seem to be eastern shore Maryland.Then again that is where most of the people invovled with shipping came from when Baltimore 'became' the port.
You are definately in the right area for a realtionship with Kennard's though.
Let me know what you have and we will see.....
