Kennerly Home Page
Happy New Year!  ( I wrote this over the holidays and as we just returned from celebrations tonight, maybe we're the first to email you best wishes for this year!)
 
Best wishes to all for the New Year!  This email includes a variety of "Kennerly" family history (both US and England) and an update on our Kennerly - Kenerley DNA project.  As I've mentioned before, I recently retired from the US Air Force after nearly 29 years and the new "news" is that I will soon begin my "2nd career" about mid-January.  In the few months I've had off, I've pulled together research notes on the NC branch of the Kennerly family with the greatest assistance from Charlie White.  Charlie has put together a draft document that is quite exhaustive and well documented and I'll forward that to you again in a few months.  As always, your comments will be welcome--especially any corrections for accuracy or clarity.
 
We have a research question .. does anyone have any info that can "prove" the parents of Samuel Kennerly, born @1817 in SC?  Samuel's son, John Conrad Kennerly born about 1840 in Mississippi, went to Brazil after the civil war.  Any speculations?
 
Now, an update on the DNA project at: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Kenerley/ 
With a dozen members, we have numerous folks with exact/partial matches on 12/25 markers ... which means they are "most likely" related within a "genealogically significant time period" (we share a common ancestor within several hundred years).  This group is most interesting because their DNA type is very rare in Europe.  I have to watch words here because there's great confusion on what DNA matches mean -- this isn't a DNA match like TV/ associated with a paternity suit/ or a crime scene.  This DNA test is more simple and only provides a probability of a relationship.  Using documents and records is a must to prove a relationship.  For the 4 folks who match exactly on 12 markers, the probability of a common ancestor increases to 90+% in the 1600's or about the time many of the Kennerly's were immigrating to the US.  This could mean that brothers, uncles or cousins etc also immigrated rather than we all descend from a single Kennerly immigrant, but the DNA match is a proof -- even if we don't share the same Kennerly immigrant ancestor, we share a common ancestor back in England.  And we have a 5th member, who shares a common ancestor with this group possibly back as far as the 1200's.  After the 1200's, we'll never know relationships because surnames were nonexistent for all except royalty.  There's a supposed interesting Kennerly connection to royalty, but I'll leave that story for another email.  Ok, lengthy explanation already but I've received many questions about it.  We also have related matches with 2 other families to the above group which reflects a common ancestor but that will be hard to determine.
 
The 2nd group of Kennerly's relatives have a DNA type that is common to many Europeans but they are definitely a separate and distinct group from the 1st group of Kennerly's.  Thru further testing of more people, we may be able to figure out if there ever was any kind of female relationship or if this group descended from a completely different family. 
 
Finally, we have 1 DNA kit pending tests and 1 test to be mailed back.  We're especially interested in Kennerly's across the US so we can figure out who migrate where and when, and most of all, we're interested in English Kennerly/Kynerrsley's participating in the test.
 
Enough of that stuff ... below is a collection of info from the web and books that might interest you.  Hopefully you'll be able to see all the pictures!?!  We're finding Kennerly's across the US from north, south, east and west ... and England.  I think it's best to share this info rather than hoard it.  So, if you have something to share, email me and I'll include it in a later update to everyone.  You never know what people are looking for, and if I can help you in your Kennerly family research in any way, let me know.
 
Happy New Year!

The Forgotten "Stonewall of the West": Major General John Stevens  by Phillip Thomas Tucker
Hopefully, the link below will take you to Google books and display the book so you can even search the text.  On the left side, scroll down until you find the search box, type Kennerley and enter ... and you'll see the pages with references to Kennerly's in Missouri as well as Mississippi, etc during the early 1800's.  These are the descendants of the VA Kennerly's from Samuel Kennerly, who died in St Louis in 1845.  Among notables are:  Harriet Kennerly, who married William Clark of Lewis and Clark fame.  Also included is some Kennerly family history:  an account of Samuel Kennerly rescuing the flag at the Battle of Cowpens (perhaps an error as Samuel in his Revolutionary War pension affidavit stated he arrived at Cowpens 5 days after the battle but he participated in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, where he was wounded . see the movie "The Patriot" which was loosely based on these battles) ; and pictures of Mary Kennerly, James A. Kennerly, and Lewis Hancock Kennerly.  William Clark became governor of Missouri and James Kennerly was his chief clerk.  James Kennerly and his brother George, and their families, helped open the west to settlement.  REF:   http://books.google.com/books?id=5TDnLWT43z8C&pg=PA30&dq=%22samuel+Kennerly%22+mississippi&ei=TOttR96iB4HgiQGK8rFr&sig=Yl_0WEraRoJDj5C2RqxSmYJ3wJM#PPP1,M1
 
Another book is particularly interesting .. as it also describes Samuel Kennerly's Revolutionary War Service (slightly different, too) and also has more of the VA Kennerly history included.

Some people over the years have taken liberty with Samuel Kennerly's Revolutionary War exploits as compared to sworn statement under oath, filed on  the 11 Nov 1834 when he personally appeared in Botetourt County and requested a Revolutionary War pension ... He says that he again volunteered and entered the service in a Company Commanded by Capt Rowland in the County of Botetourt and State of Virginia in the month of January 1781 and marched under him into the State of North Carolina and joined the Army of General Nathaniel Greene five days after the battle of the Cowpens (South Carolina, 17 Jan 1781) and continued in his army until after the Battle of Court House in Greensboro NC which battle he was in and took from a British officer his cocked hat & feather, he was wounded by a ball on the side of his head  after this he was sent to a hospital at Col Perkins on Dan River where he remained nursing and attending to the wounded after his own wound was cured between 7 & 8 weeks when he was discharged in the middle of May so that he was during this tour four months in service and five months in the Cherokee expedition aforesaid will make altogether nine months that he was in the service of his Country during the Revolutionary war. He says that Col Williams,  Col Washington & Col Lee were some of the regular officers in addition to those he has mentioned who were with the troops at Guilford. He says that he received a discharge from the service in writing in both the tours he made but has lost them. He says that William Kennerly [his brother] who is now in Court knows him and knows that he served in the Cherokee expedition and in the Campaign of 1781 under General Green in North Carolina and Peter Bricky & Col Anderson who was also in the Army of General Green in the same Campaign (& are now in Court) have been long acquainted with him and know that he served in the said Campaign and Mr. Bricky knows that he was in the battle of Guilford and was wounded and Col Anderson  Col Cartmill and John Moore who have long known him can testify to his character for veracity and their belief of his services as a Soldier of the Revolution. He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension Roll of the agency of any State - Sworn to & subscribed the day aforesaid in open Court.

George Hancock Kennerly was born January 28, 1790, in Fincastle, Virginia, and moved to St. Louis in 1813 with his brother James. He served as a lieutenant in the War of 1812, and in 1828 was appointed postmaster at Jefferson Barracks, just south of St. Louis, Missouri. During the Mexican War he served as assistant quartermaster. In 1825 he married Alziere Menard, daughter of Pierre Menard, the first lieutenant governor of Illinois. George H. Kennerly died January 28, 1867, at Jefferson Barracks.  These two brothers have a most colorful history as they were almost killed by the British, Indians and horses (and in a duel) on several different occasions during their lifetimes.

"Roots" searches dig into DNA
Genetic maps help tracers of family trees, including Alex Haley's nephew, fill in the gaps archives leave.
By Paul Foy  The Associated Press  Article Last Updated: 10/16/2007 11:42:53 PM MDT

SALT LAKE CITY - In 1976, when Alex Haley published "Roots," his ancestral account through six generations of slaves, free men and professionals, he didn't have help from genealogical or DNA databases.  Enter nephew Chris Haley, whose DNA test revealed that a branch of the family extends to a white European man.  Haley provided a cheek swab and was one of the first to use Ancestry DNA, a website that combines DNA analysis and historical records.
"It's fascinating," said Haley, 40, research director for the Legacy of Slavery Project at the Maryland State Archives in Annapolis, Md.  His family had long suspected that the paternal line descends from an Irishman. Now there's some proof, and Haley hopes to fill the gaps left by his late uncle, whose historical novel traced a maternal line to Africa.
"It will be a shortcut for many people," said Megan Smolenyak, chief family historian for Provo, Utah-based Ancestry.com and author of "Tracing Your Roots with DNA." With a cheek- swiped cotton swab, customers can add DNA results to a family tree and contact others with DNA matches to compare family histories.  DNA tests help when the paper trail fades, but it still has limits. It can't reveal names, precise dates or locations of ancestors, said Dick Eastman, who writes an online genealogy newsletter. People will find it useful to discover their origins, he said.
Haley said many people assume his family knows everything about its history, but "Roots" mixed fiction with the history of only one branch of the family.  Alex Haley was inspired after discovering the names of his maternal great-grandparents in post-Civil War records at the National Archives in Washington.  The book and a TV miniseries inspired a new generation of black Americans to discover their own family stories.  Chris Haley readily agreed to give a cheek swab after striking up a conversation with Smolenyak at a genealogy conference in Fort Wayne, Ind., in August.  She walked him through the results Monday, when Haley discovered he shared a DNA match with two other Ancestry.com users, including a Canadian.  Haley likened the results to a pregnancy test in reverse: "You find out who came before you."

KENNERLEY, ALFRED (c. 1810-1897), premier of Tasmania,

was born about the year 1810. He was a man of means who came from England to Australia when young and settled in New South Wales. He removed to Hobart, became an alderman about 1860, and was mayor in 1862, 1863, 1871 and 1872. He was elected to parliament and on 4 August 1873 became premier without office. His ministry initiated a policy of public works, but though there was really little difference between the parties, there was a good deal of political strife, and it was difficult to get anything constructive done. Kennerley became discouraged and resigned on 20 July 1876. This was the only time he was in office, but he was well known for the remainder of his long life as a staunch supporter of the Church of England, and as one of the most philanthropic and high-principled citizens of Hobart. He died in his eighty-eighth year on 15 November 1897. His wife died many years before him and he had no children.

In 1829, Alabama divided Creek territory into counties and subjected the Indian population to European magistrates. In 1830, Mississippi assimilated Choctaws and Chickasaws into the white population and declared that any of them who took the title of chief would be punished by a fine of 1,000 dollars and a year's imprisonment. When these laws were announced to the Choctaws, their chief told the assembled tribe the intentions of the whites and read to them some of the laws to which they should submit.  They unanimously declared it was better to retreat again into the wilds.  (Mississippi Papers.)

In 1818, Congress appointed commissioners to visit the Arkansas territory, accompanied by a deputation of Creeks, Choctaws, and Chickasaws. This expedition was commanded by Messrs. Kennerly, M'Coy, Wash Hood, and John Bell. See the reports of the commissioners and their journal in Documents of Congress, No. 87, House of Representatives.

24 One finds in the treaty made with the Creeks in 1790 this clause "The United States solemnly guarantee to the Creek nation all their land within the limits of the United States." The treaty concluded in 1791 with the Cherokees states: "The United States solemnly guarantee to the Cherokee nation all their lands not hereby ceded. If any citizen of the United States, or other settler not of the Indian race, establishes himself upon the territory of the Cherokees, the United States declare that they will withdraw their protection from that individual and give him up to be punished as the Cherokee nation thinks fit." (Art. 8.)

In Judith McKnight's book "Doldado Descansa" there is a Kennerly family tree. Unfortunately, the book is in Portuguese!  But here's an excerpt:  John Kennerly was in Louisiana at the end of the war and to avoid surrender, he went into the bayous. Hiding behind the enemy lines, he was discovered by a former slave, he was imprisoned and spent some time in a terrible prison, enduring hardships. Suffering from hunger, the
prisoners captured a possum, and his share was the ear. He said he had never had such a a delicious meal in his life.

Game Fish Species of British Columbia


Kokanee


Sockeye Salmon

Kokanee & Sockeye Salmon

Oncorhynchus nerka or Kokanee, Kickininee, Little Redfish, Land-Locked Sockeye, Kennerly's Salmon, Silver Trout, Yank (anadromous form - Sockeye, Red Salmon, Blueback Salmon)
There are well known populations of a truly freshwater form of this species, the kokanee, as well as the anadromous sockeye salmon. The kokanee is generally very similar to the sockeye except in ultimate length and weight.
DESCRIPTION - The streamlined body of this species is usually 8-9 inches long when mature. (A sockeye is about 24 inches long when it returns to freshwater.) The head is bluntly pointed and conical with a pointed snout and small teeth on the jaws. Breeding males have a more compressed head and body with a prolonged, hooked, turned up snout and a small hump before the dorsal fin. Breeding males and females experience a striking color change. Typical coloring of this species is a brilliant steel-blue to green-blue with no distinct spots and sides an overall bright silver with a white to silver belly.
DISTRIBUTION - The kokanee is found over most of the range of the sockeye salmon which extends in North America from the Klamath River in California to Point Hope, Alaska. The kokanee occurs naturally in Japan, USSR, Alaska, Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Washington, Idaho and Oregon but they are more widely found and abundant in British Columbia.
BIOLOGY - Kokanee spawn in the fall from September to October. The mature adults usually enter inlet streams of the lake in which they are living or they may spawn in gravel beds along its shore. The female prepares the nest and lays 368-1764 (average 450) eggs where a few days to several weeks later the adults of both sexes die. Hatching occurs in December-January and emergence is not until March-May. Generally this species mature, spawn and die at 4 years of age. Kokanee as large as 21 inches in length and weights of up to 4 pounds are not uncommon. In the anadromous sockeye spawning takes place from July to December mainly from the Fraser River to drainages into Bristol Bay.
RELATION TO MAN - Kokanee have long since been a sport fish of interest. They are generally looked upon as hard to catch by anglers as this species are plankton feeders. Both Kokanee and Sockeye are considered excellent sportfish which eagerly take both flies and lures. Their flesh is often blood-red, oily and delicious cooked in a variety of ways, or brined and hot smoked. Canning is also a popular method of preservation.

     ISAAC McCOY in 1828 made two exploring tripsinto the Indian country. On the first of these, accompanied by an interpreter, hetook a party of Pottawatomie and Ottawa Indians to inspect lands west of theMissouri frontier. He left Saint Louis on August 21 and returned October 7. Ofthe second expedition, which left Saint Louis later in October under the commandof Capt. G. H. Kennerly, McCoy was treasurer. This time Chickasaw, Choctaw, andCreek delegations were taken west to the Neosho river and then south to FortGibson and the mouth of the Canadian river. McCoy reached Saint Louis the secondtime on December 24 and the next day started for Washington. Working up hisaccounts while traveling, he arrived in the capital on January 27, 1829, and twodays later addressed to P. B. Porter, Secretary of War, a lengthy reportdescribing his activities, the nature of the country explored, and the value ofthe lands to be assigned to the Indians. The section of McCoy's journal recordingthe first of these expeditions has been published.

History ...
For some 160 yrs sugar was refined in Chester, though on quite a small scale and probably for local consumption. Giles Vanbrugh, the father of Sir John, and John & Samuel Henthorne refined in Chester in the late 17thC, and there was a sugar house in Weavers Lane in 1745 (1745 map), which in the 1780s was run by Robert Hesketh & John Kennerly (Dir & 1789 Hunter map) . Also in the 1780s there was a sugar house in Skinners Lane on the banks of the River Dee, possibly run by Thomas Roberts (1789 Hunter map). There is little known of these businesses, but considerable information is to be found under references CCALS D/HINCKS & CCALS D 5879 at the Record Office in Chester regarding the rather short-lived sugar house in Cuppins Lane.

    Originally published in The Southwestern Historical Quarterly July 1966, Vol. LXX, No. 1
    Tenoxtitlan was the Indian name for Mexico city, but there also was another Tenoxtitlan, a Mexican town established in present Burleson County in 1830, which was twice proposed as the capital of Texas.
    In the 1820's, when Mexico finally won independence from Spain, it found itself the owner of a vast, sparsely settled northern frontier. To settle that area, the State of Coahuila and Texas in 1825 passed a liberal colonization law, the first article of which said: "All foreigners who . wish to emigrate to any of the settlements of the State of Coahuila and Texas, are permitted to do so; and the said State invites and calls them."1
    Settlers from the United States poured into Texas in such great numbers that they soon began to outnumber the Mexicans. By 1830, the Mexican government had become so worried over the trend that it passed a law to stop the flood of emigration from the United States.2 Enforcement of that law was placed in the hands of General Manuel de Mier y Teran, who launched a grandiose project to "Mexicanize" Texas by erecting a line of forts garrisoned by Mexican troops, surrounded by Mexican settlers, and bearing names which had been popular among the Indians even before the Spaniards arrived--names like Anahuac, Lipantitlan, and Tenoxtitlan.
    General Mier y Teran issued an order on April 24, 1830, providing for the establishment of a fort at the point where the road from Bexar (or San Antonio) crossed the Brazos River on the way to Nacogdoches [SEE MAP]. It was to be garrisoned by the Alamo Cavalry Company under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Francisco Ruiz, a native of Bexar.3
    The Ruiz expedition set out from Bexar on June 25, 1830,4 and reached the banks of the Brazos on July 13. It consisted of 100 men, 12 pack loads of supplies, 3 yokes of oxen, and a new oxcart. In the cart were a blacksmith's forge, a cannon, and the accompanying ammunition. Colonel Ruiz established temporary headquarters on the east bank of the Brazos about half a mile below the Bexar-Nacogdoches Road.5
    On July 16, 1830, General Mier y Teran named the new post "Tenoxtitlan." 6 There was no written accent on the a, so, according to the modern Spanish rules of pronunciation, the word would be stressed on the next-to-last syllable: Te-nox--tlan. That was the original Indian word used to describe Mexico City when it was founded about the year 1300, for the Indians had been told to wander until they found an eagle perched on a prickly pear devouring a serpent. When they did, they called the site Tenochtitlan, or "Prickly Pear Place." In the documents describing the conquest of Mexico from 1519 to 1521, the word frequently appears spelled Tenochtitlan, with an accent on the a, and therefore would have been pronounced Te-noch-ti-tlán, with the main stress on the last syllable, and a secondary stress on noch. Colonel Ruiz liked the name so well that he had it repeated to his troops on three successive days.7
    The Mexicans at the post probably pronounced it Ten-ock-ti-tlan, but, when the Anglo-American settlers arrived from the United States, they had a tendency to move the stressed syllable back toward the beginning of words. Thus they called it Ten-ockti-tlan, and the place where the road crossed the river became known as "the old Tenock Crossing."8
    The first duty assigned to the new garrison was the escorting of military funds en route from Bexar to Nacogdoches. The escort was to receive the money from the Bexar troops when they arrived at Tenoxtitlan and carry it east under guard to the Trinity River, where it would be turned over to the soldiers who had come out from Nacogdoches.9
    The extreme importance which Mier y Teran attached to Tenoxtitlan is revealed in a letter he wrote to the Mexican secretary of state on July 31, 1830, saying:
    I have had the name of Tenoxtitlan given to the central point on the Brazos River, which divides the distance between Nacogdoches and Bexar on what they call the Upper Road. It is extremely important that it be settled in order to keep Texas in subjection, and it is very well suited for Mexican colonists because the land is adequate for farming and ranching.... In my opinion this point, if it is developed, will in time become the capital of all Texas. The transfer of the five hundred families proposed by Don Victor Blanco .. would completely change the situation of that Department, for the troops would have that point as a stronghold which could be made impregnable to attack by the North Americans.10
    The general was using the term "North Americans" in its broadest sense, for he was concerned with the westward migration of the United States Indians as well as the white settlers. He wanted to make Tenoxtitlan a cavalry post of at least four hundred men who, aided by friendly Texas Indians, would maintain a constant patrol of the northeastern frontier. 11
    From the middle of July, Colonel Ruiz had been hacking his way through the dense Brazos River bottom in search of a permanent site for his fort. Finally he found one which, to use his own words, was located "six leagues to the west of the Upper Crossing of the Brazos River.'' 12 That actually meant, however, that the new site was six leagues up the river, since a letter written a few days later noted that there was a river crossing directly in front of the new site. 13
    Mary Austin Holley, in her book on Texas published in 1836, says that it was on the right, or west, bank of the Brazos, twelve miles above the Upper Road leading from Bexar to Nacogdoches, fifteen miles below the mouth of the San Andres, or Little, River, and one hundred miles above San Felipe de Austin. 14 One of the chief attractions of the site was an abundance of good drinking water. The detachment moved to the permanent site on October 17, l830, 15 and a Mexican garrison was maintained there until August 22, 1832, or a little less than two years.
    Mier y Teran had given detailed instructions for the founding of his dream capital of Texas. Alférez Santiago Navayra was to be in charge of construction. The fort itself was supposed to have been built of stone and mortar, but Ruiz replied that it would have to be made of lumber, since stone and mortar were not available. The fort was to be built on the west bank of the river where it would dominate the crossing, and the troops were to start work immediately cutting approaches east and west through the wilderness s as to bring the Bexar-Nacogdoches Road across the Brazos at that point. 16
    Those provisions for connecting the fort with the surrounding country were supplemented by the ayuntamiento of San Felipe, the capital of Austin's Colony down the river. In its meeting of December 31, 1830, the members appointed Abner Lee, John P. Coles, Nestor Clay, John Cole, and George Erving to lay out a road from the home of Joel Laky to the garrison on the Brazos. 17
    Mier y Teran also had ordered that all brush be removed from the area surrounding Fort Tenoxtitlan, to a distance of 400 varas (about 1100 feet), and that no houses be built within that zone because they would interfere with the effective use of firearms. The fort itself was to be a veritable citadel. The general even drew a floor plan for it, made a model, and forwarded both from his headquarters in Matamoros to Colonel Ruiz in Tenoxtitlan. They were carefully packed in a little wooden box, but they went astray somewhere after they passed through Bexar and never reached their destination.18
    Fort Tenoxtitlan had been in existence only one week when seven Tennesseans rode into town and asked to see Colonel Ruiz. Their leader, a stocky individual with sandy hair and silver spurs, introduced himself as Major Sterling C. Robertson, agent of the Texas Association. Displaying a colonization contract which the association had made with the State of Coahuila and Texas, Major Robertson announced that he had come to explore the country and select the site for a permanent settlement. 19
    The primary purpose of Fort Tenoxtitlan, of course, was to stop the immigration of Anglo-Americans into Mexican territory, but Colonel Ruiz was a native Texan, and he had his own ideas about what Texas needed. As he expressed it, ". . . I cannot help seeing the advantages which, to my way of thinking, would result if we admitted honest, hard-working people, regardless of what country they come from, . . even hell itself."20
    Besides, he liked the Tennesseans, especially after Dr. Thomas J. Wootton, a member of the party, had cured several of his sick soldiers without charging them anything. The Mexicans and the Tennesseans got along harmoniously together, despite the fact that no one in the entire garrison could speak English, and the foreigners knew no Spanish. Ruiz wanted to let them stay, but the law was not clear concerning already existing contracts which were in the process of completion, so he wrote his superior officer for instructions. 2l
    While the colonel was waiting for a reply, the caravan of fifty immigrants which had been following Major Robertson finally arrived at the Brazos on November 12, 1830, and turned its covered wagons off the Bexar-Nacogdoches Road to camp down the river in the temporary structures which the Mexican garrison had recently abandoned. Early the next morning Major Robertson rode up to Tenoxtitlan, filed with Colonel Ruiz a formal report on the status of his colonization project, and asked for permission to settle the families in the colony. 22
    That request set off a chain reaction of official correspondence which produced repercussions in cities as far distant as Matamoros and Leona Vicario (as Saltillo was then called). Three months later the answer came booming back: Give orders to the effect that neither Sterling Robertson nor any other North American family shall be allowed to settle in Tenoxtitlan. ... 23   ... Turn them over to the Military Commandant of the Town of Nacogdoches so that he may transport them without fail to the other side of the Sabine. . .24
    To those peremptory commands Ruiz blandly replied that the families had never actually reached his post, that he had no idea where they were, and that the horses at his garrison were in such a "fatal" condition that it would be useless to try to find the immigrants. 25
    Apparently, the fifty immigrants were never rounded up and escorted beyond the Sabine. They lived for a time in the former Mexican quarters on the Brazos and then moved to permanent homes in other parts of Texas. The heads of families included: Isaiah Curd, Quintin Dines, James Farmer, Everton Kennerly, George A. Kerr, Henry J. Pair, Jeremiah Tinnin, John Wilson, and Dr. Thomas J. Wootton.26
