Fernbank Items: Aug 22, 1886 - An infant son of Mr. and Mrs. J. K. KEMP died in our town a few days ago. (Lamar News, Sept. 2, 1886)

We regret to note the death of Mr. S. P. Kemp, which event occurred Thursday of last week.  Mr. Kemp was well known, and liked by many people throughout the county.  At one time he served as sheriff of the county, and several old citizens remember him as Sherig Kemp.  The burial took place Friday at Mt. Pleasant, with Odd Fellow honors, to which order he had belonged for several years.  The Democrat sympathizes with the bereaved friends and relatives of “Uncle Starling Kemp.” (The Lamar Democrat, Vernon, Alabama, March 19, 1908)

Died: Near Vernon on Sunday night the 19th inst., Mrs. KEMPER, wife of Mr. PETER KEMPER. She was 62 years of age, zealous Christian, and greatly loved by all her acquaintances. (Vernon Clipper, Sept. 24, 1880)

Mrs. ELIZABETH KENNEDY, an aged lady died very suddenly Monday night, at the home of her son, Mr. JOHNSON KENNEDY, two miles north of town. She was suffering from an attack of "the grip" and had experienced heart trouble for sometime, and her constitution was not strong enough to resist the combined attack. Mrs. KENNEDY was an estimable Christian lady and will be sadly missed by a large circle of friends.  (Vernon Courier, March 24, 1892)

KENNEDY, Infant of J. W.
The infant child of Mr. J. W. KENNEDY died Saturday night. (Vernon Courier, July 30, 1896)

The death of Mrs. Dr. J. O. KENNEDY on Saturday last, at Kennedy station was quite a shock to a large circle of friends. Dr. and Mrs. KENNEDY were married in December of last year, and Mrs. KENNEDY was immediately placed in charge of their new and elegant home, with as bright prospects for a long and happy life as ever falls to the lot of a beautiful and cultivated lady. Perhaps at no time in life would this final summons have seemed to us so premature. The light and life of a home and the idol of a noble and loving husband quickly passes away.

Mrs. MARTHA KINARD, near here, died a few days ago. Our pen fails to give utterance to her pitiable condition. Our commissioner certainly ought to make some provisions for her now motherless children. (Lamar News, April 15, 1886)
