    • On Brenda Eliott's webpage, (http://www/, Joseph's wife is shown as Eleanor McKenny(Kenny). It is noted that she was born in 1802. On the Rootsweb WorldConnect Project: Latest family tree update prepared by Yvonne Ramsell Simonson (, it is shown and Eleanor McKenney was born in the USA to Irish parents.

      The only other family with the surname Kenny listed on the 1850 Rappahannock County, VA census was 48 year old Sylvanus Kenny, who was married to a 37 year old woman named Ann. This apparently was a second marriage, as his oldest child was 27 year old George W Kenny. There are 10 other children listed in his family. (Family 170). Living two homes away is 26 year old George W. Kenny with his 26 year old wife Susan. Was George W. listed in both households? Or were there two George W. Kenny's approximately the same age?  Could Sylvanus have been Ellen's brother, perhaps even her twin as their ages are shown as the same? I noted that Sylvanus himself had twin sons, 16 year old John and Robert.

      Becky Asif found the following database online: It shows Andrew Kenney having 2 daughters Eliza(1802) and Elender(1807).

      She also found a marriage record of Sylvanus and Ann KENNY, as follows: SALVANUS KENNY ANN HEFLIN 12 January 1825 Fauquier

      Other KENNY's that were married in Fauquier:

      DANIEL BERRYMAN RUTHA KENNY 24 November 1821 Fauquier
      EDWARD KENNY PATTY ROUTT 09 May 1791 Fauquier
      JAMES BERRYMAN SUSANNA KENNY 13 March 1812 Fauquier
      LANDON BERRYMAN MARY JANE KENNY 10 December 1832 Fauquier

      Becky Asif also found the following, posted by George V. Hilburn to the Kenny Family Genealogy Forum. She speculates Eloiza and Ellender might be the same person.

      Kenny-Stadler Connection

      The following is meant to show the connection between the three KENNY children (Eloiza, Sylvanus, & Richard) and Jacob STADLER. In the first part, monies were to be collected from the sale of slaves with the proceeds to be divided between the complainants and the defendants. The second is the actual appraisal to the court of the slaves. The third is the carrying out of the dispersal of some of the monies to the defendants (the minor children). In the third part is the phrase "grandfather's estate" instead of the name "Jacob STADLER."

      It is believed that Jacob STADLER is not a blood grandfather, but one by marriage. A HORTON was probably the actual grandfather, but was dead by this time. Here is the reason why.
      In the will of William KERNES, one of his daughters is referred to Elizabeth STADLER, wife of Jacob STADLER. There is also a reference in the KERNES will to his grandson, Benjamin HORTON. As the mother of the KENNY children was a HORTON (marriage lisence), and STADLER is referred to as a grandfather, it is safe to assume that Elizabeth KERNES STADLER was previously married to a HORTON. An unconfirmed source has this HORTON as Benjamin HORTON, born 1750 in Stafford Co, VA.
