Sue,

In response to your queries:

1) The Burrell Kemp born 7 April 1794 is Burrell/Burwell Kemp Jr. (7
Apr. 1794 - 1883) [1840 USC] [1850 USC] [1860 USC] [1870 USC] [1880
USC], born in Wake Co., NC, married Elizabeth (Smith ?)
Rowland/Roveling/Rawlings/Rowlings/Romling/Romeling (1795/1796 - ~1873)
[1840 USC] [1850 USC] [1860 USC] [1870 USC], born in Wake Co., NC, on 3
Nov. 1813 [WCTMR] in Lebanon, Wilson County, Tennessee. By 1814 they
were living in Old Kemp Hollow #1, on Peyton's creek, near Monoville,
Smith Co., TN, on a land grant from NC in Indian Territory. Burrell was
a farmer, both Burrell and Elizabeth were able to read, though their
ability to write is unclear. (Richardson, Sarah (Sally), Kissiah,
Elizabeth and Rebecca Rowland were siblings, possibly children of Sarah
Rowland.) They had nine sons (possibly a tenth died in childhood) and
up to six daughters, but the daughters are presently unknown. After
Elizabeth's demise in the early 1870s, Burrell Jr. married Jane
(Kennedy?) Russell (~1828 - ?) [1880 USC] on 27 Sep. 1874 [SCTMR] by E.
J. Yeaman, J.P.; there were no issue from this union. Jane Russell is
likely Jane Kennedy, daughter of Stephen Kennedy and widow of Edward
Russell.

2) Burrell Kemp Jr. was the son of Murphy Kemp (21 March 1770 -
1851/1860) [1820 USC] [1830 USC] [1840 USC] [1850 USC]. Born in
Granville/Wake Co., NC, and married Sarah/Sally Seay/See (22 Apr. 1775 -
<1825). They emigrated to, lived and passed in Smith Co., TN. [NOTE:
There is an outside chance that Sarah's wife's maiden name was Baird,
not Seay.]

3) I meant the Richard and Sarah of the immediately preceding paragraph,
namely Richard Kemp (1774/1775 - 1850<) [1820 USC] [1830 USC] [1840 USC]
[1850 USC] was born in NC, was literate and married Barbara (Sarah)
Reece (~1780 - <1875), born in Caswell Co., NC, daughter of Roger and
Fanny Reece, on 4 November 1799 [GCNCMR] in Granville Co., NC, marriage
bond 5303.

4) Mary (Polly) Dowell/Deal/Dial/Diel was born ~1825. She could not
have been born ~1838 because her first child Haywood was born ~1839.

5) In my description of Jesse Benton Kemp, I omitted a comma,
introducing some confusion. With the comma between "TN" and "18" at the
end of the sentence, it should read Jesse Benton (Benton) (1812 -
1880<) [1840 USC] [1850 USC] [1870 USC/JTN] [1880 USC/JTN] [1881
USC/FTX] was born in TN and married Mary (Polly) Dowell/Deal/Dial/Diel
(~1825 - 1880<) [1850 USC] [1870 USC/JTN] [1880 USC/JTN] [1881 USC/FTX],
born in TN, 18 Apr. 1838 in Smith Co., TN.

6) George W. Kemp (Mar. 1848 - 5 Mar. 1909) or ( 29 Apr. 1850 - 2 Nov.
1882) as described in the immediately preceding para was the son of
Jesse Benton (Benton) (1812 - 1880<) [1840 USC] [1850 USC] [1870
USC/JTN] [1880 USC/JTN] [1881 USC/FTX] was born in TN and married Mary
(Polly) Dowell/Deal/Dial/Diel (~1825 - 1880<) [1850 USC] [1870 USC/JTN]
[1880 USC/JTN] [1881 USC/FTX], born in TN, 18 Apr. 1838 in Smith Co.,
TN. 1848 - `1909 are the correct life dates for George.

I hope this clarifies things,

Gary
