KERR in Pennsylvania - 1700s
Posted by: Martha Murphy (ID *****2751) Date: April 06, 2012 at 18:26:41
  of 4936

I am looking for the parents of Margaret Kerr, b about 1761, who married George Myers. She is said to have been born in Somerset, PA -- I don't know whether it was the town or the county. The couple moved to Kentucky between 1785 and 1790. Her name is sometimes given as Margaret Albert Kerr -- I don't know for sure which is the maiden name.

Here are the Kerrs I found who may have been in early Washington, Pennsylvania -- There were many more after 1794. The list is not complete, of course. I wish they'd been more creative with their given names!
