Think you for this information. The Richard came about through
the Smith County, Tennessee, Website, Old Family Pictures, under
Asa Kemp. My William L. is where i was having trouble. Someone
who was related in this Kemp line is where i got William L.. I have
tried to figure this out and could not get it. So this is just William
Kemp. Do you by chance know his parents? He was the one i had
out of line. I have tired to find his parents, maybe now without the
L. i may have a chance. THANK YOU for helping me realize this.

I'm not Sue, Cherolyn but I think you've got something mixed up somewhere.

Elizabeth, Adelle, Ione, Eula Hart and Etoyle Kemps. Parents are Robert
Lester Kemp 1891-1929 & Florence Matthews 1893-1829.
Roberts Parents are Henry Bluford Kemp February 19, 1865 -August 10, 1903 &
Eula Jane Allen. January 10, 1869 -January 27, 1902
Henry's parents are Asa Kemp December 27, 1820 & Mary Ann Williams,November
07, 1822-March 08, 1882.
Asa's parents are Burrell P. Kemp, Jr. Abt. 1795- aft 1870 & Elizabeth Jane
Romling, ca 1795- bet 1870-1880.
Burrell Jr's parents Burrell P. Kemp, Sr. ca 1771- 1827 & Nancy Foster d. ca

If your talking about Alfred b. ca 1844 - 1845 son of William Kemp b. Bet.
1805 - 1808 & Nancy (Jones?) b. Abt. 1806, he doesn't fit into the line of
the other people you have listed.

I think you need to take the "L" from the William that married Nancy
(Jones?). I think you are confusing him with the two William Layton Kemps,
from Burrell Jr.s line. I've never seen the William that Married Nancy
recorded in the census as William L.? Just William Kemp

Someone correct me if I got any of this wrong.

On generation no. 1 Alford Kemp's parents are William L. and Nancy,
then Wiliam's parents are Richard Lester and Florecne, then Richard's
parents are Henry Bluford and Eula Jane, is this right. If it is here was
my missed connection.
I have Richard's and Eula Jane's children as: Elizabeth, Adelle, Ione,
Eula Hart and Etoyle Kemps. Now William L. is in here right? Where
did some of these names come from?
