Samuel Kerr, a pioneer of this area, was born in 1776 and died in 1853. He was a farmer and married to Elizabeth Stitt (1773-1833). They had eight or nine children, including Thomas (1805-1889), who married a woman named Sarah; Elisabeth (1793-1862); Juliet Ann (1812-1844); and Sarah (1796-1861). Samuel died of “general decline” at the age of 86.
We could establish no connection between Samuel Kerr and Rev. Joseph Kerr, but their graves are not far from one another.
