In an adjacent fenced area there is a recent family member of the present inhabitants of the old John Andrew Kerr home. She is interred under a modern a monument. Names withheld because of privacy concerns.

The present owners of this property are the Lindsey family. This property was known in times past as the Kerr Farm having last been in the hands of surviving Kerr brothers & sisters. The father was John Andrew Kerr and the mother's maiden name was Fogg. Prior to the Kerr family best I can tell this was the Beasley family property, but maybe another family in between. The home here was originally of log construction founded in 1844 likely by John A. Beasley. Like many of the original homes it has been expanded and modernized over the years.  As told to Mr. Lindsey by one of the remaining lady Kerr descendents in the 1960s.
