We Too are trying to locate a Joseph A. Kenna jr. Being a Junior we assume his father was also Joseph A. Kenna. What we have is, Joseph A. Kenna Jr. was married (per License application in our hands) October 5, 1898 to a Minnie Pearl Gormley. On the application Joseph is said to be born in New Castle PA on Sept.29, 1876, and Minnie was born Oct. 20th, 1876 also in New Castle PA. New Castle being in Lawrence Co. PA. They had one son born May 21, 1899 in New Castle, Lawrence co., PA his name was Joseph Harold Kenna. We found news paper clipping where Minnie Pearl Kenna married one William C. Druschel. Paper was the New Castle News and dated May 3, 1910. We do not know what happened to Joseph Jr. during the period of 1899 and 1910. Could it be there was a divorce soon after the baby was born or earlier, and then Joseph remarried? Your story and ours have some similar facts.
Joseph H. Kenna is my husbands father.
If we have a connection let us know at Thanks-Gloria (Ponder) Kenna
