Family Group 15

Daniel Kenny, 1742, Charlestown, Chester Co., PA

Descends from the family of Daniel Kenny, b. 1742, Charlestown, Chester Co., Pennsylvania. A family of Quakers who eventually migrated to Ohio in the early 1800's. Information suggests that one of Daniel's antecedents may have been born in England. The will of James Kenny of Chester Co., Pa. states that he is a "Kinsman" to Daniel and IGI records indicate that James was born 1733 in England.

Note:  James Kenny not listed. IGI records indicate that kinsman, James Kenny, was born 1733 England. I am not sure of the exact relationship for the term 'kinsman" implies only that they are related to some degree. The term "of the 500 tract" may relate to the Welsh Barony/Tract, a portion of land set aside by William Penn for Welsh Quakers.

Kenny, James "of the 500 tract".
