KERNS, Rebecca A. W. - w/o David Kerns - d 17 Aug 1884 - age 54 yrs 1 month 25 days - PHOTO - - Location: next to her daughter, Amanda O (Kerns) McMillan, w/o John Oscar McMillan.

More Info: Rebecca's husband David KERNS died at the Weston WV asylum and is buried there. His civil war records and those of his son Gamaliel can be accessed by visiting the following website - David Kerns, Civil War

A second DAUGHTER, Medora Eugenia Kerns, married William Hodge McMillan, brother of John Oscar McMillan. Medora and William Hodge McMillan are buried in Alpena SD. (See obits page.)

BRICKWALL: We have not solved the mystery of Rebecca's maiden name. The record in the Moundsville WV court house listed her parents as Samuel and Katherine but no last name was included. A very old query on KERNS genforum stated it was WASHINGTON but the address for the person who posted the note is no longer valid.
