In Reply to: KERR in Pennsylvania - 1700s by Martha Murphy of 4939

Martha,
Thank you for taking the time to put all this information on here for us! I am going back through my records and notes I have for Kerrs in PA, after I did another family search in the same area.I have a note here that a Kerr came on the James and Mary in 1767.the record can be found here http://sciway3.net/proctor/ships/v2/jandmary1767.html
This ship is connected with the Rev William Martin and His Five Shiplaods of settlers. So this I believe is the ship that went to South Carolina one of these ships may of gone to Pennsylvania.
I have ran across Joseph Kerr and the Quakers also. I am looking for these Kerrs-I have a Kerr that married a Kerr Mar 21, 1865, at Lewistown, Pennsylvania. they are Eliza Jane Kerr, b 13 Feb 1849 Honey Brook, Mifflin county, PA who married Henry Kerr who was born 1843 West Caln, Chester County, PA.
Eliza's parents are Robert Henry Kerr b 1815 Honey Brook, a mistake in the death certificate record-Chester County, PA and died 1860 Mifflin County, PA married Matilda Cochran b Jul 22 1826 in Honey Brook, Mifflin County, PA. The father of Robert Kerr b 1815 is Robert Kerr b 1792 Ireland-and this is where I have a problem! I have that he died in 1875 Iredell, N.C and his father was Nathaniel Kerr b 1776 in Ballbenny, Donagheady Parish, Tyrone, Ireland. He married Nancy Provans and they both died in Irdell Co. N.C. and this is where I have their son Robert dying in 1875.
For Henry's parents I have William Kerr born 1813 PA and died 1891 Honey Brook, Mifflin Co., PA and he married Barabara Gabel who was born 1807 PA and did 1855 PA. I have William's parents as Joseph Kerr b 1782 Ireland and he died 1872 Honey Brook, Mifflin County, PA. he married Elizabeth? b 1790 Ireland and d 1881 Honey Brook, and again I have Chester, PA. I do know how the twp, county, and state boundaries changed so this may be it! I have gone through the Wakefield history in PA from Ireland. But I am now back on the Kerrs. Any suggestions for me or do you recognize these families?
Thanks,
Cindy coetting57@hotmail.com
