Hon. Duncan Farrar KENNER C.S.A.

1813 - 3 Jul 1887

Notes


Ashland-Belle Helene great house: Duncan Kenner was an extremely wealthy planter. This wealth allowed him to become increasingly important in local political circles. He served in the Louisiana legislature before the Civil War, then held office in the Confederate legislature. In July 1863, during a recess in the legislature, Kenner was visiting his family at Ashland and narrowly avoided capture by the Union army. One of his slaves warned him that the Federal troops were coming, and Kenner was able to make his escape. (if this is true I would like to collect this little piece of info about a slave to tell it to the NAACP, I bet this slave loved the Confederate Flag as much as I do -josie)


All of Kenner's prized racehorses, most of his wine and liquor, and the Kenner family silver were captured by the Federal troops (and stuck in the thieves pockets). In 1865, in a desperate attempt to get funding for the southern cause, Kenner undertook a difficult trip to Europe as a minister for the Confederate States. He had the authority to negotiate for financial support from France and Great Britain.


Even though Ashland had been captured by the Union army, sugar was still produced by the estate. (and the profit went into the coffers of the union-this occurred where ever they took over and in most cases the slaves were over worked and badly treated by the yanks-josie) The sugarhouse and its machinery were left undamaged. The overseer maintained control of the plantation and its labor force throughout the war. During the last two years of the war, Ashland was rented, and then confiscated by the Freedmen's Bureau, a Federal agency formed to assist the freed slaves. In 1866, Kenner returned from Europe, swore an oath of allegiance to the Union and was repatriated, thereby recovering the ownership of Ashland.


Not long after the Civil War, Duncan Kenner moved to New Orleans to pursue his law practice. The workers on Ashland Plantation, probably including Kenner's freed slaves, continued to live in the antebellum quarters. Continued residence in the quarters is partly explained by the nature of labor on sugar plantations in the post-Civil War period. Following Emancipation, working for wages replaced slavery on sugar plantations. As was the custom on sugar plantations before the Civil War, sugar laborers were organized into groups of workers who performed specific jobs directed by an overseer. On many plantations, the antebellum quarters were used to house these workers. The laborers were paid either in cash or in credits for use at the plantation store. A store, which was probably established soon after the war, was operating at Ashland at the time of Kenner's death. from http://www.crt.state.la.us/crt/ocd/arch/greathou/mtgh.htm


Ashland Plantation
Variant Names: Belle Helene
Location: Ascension Pa., LA
Constructed: ----
History: Duncan F. Kenner (1813-1887) built Ashland for his wife, Anne Guillemine Nanine Bringier, a member of an old and influential French family of Louisiana. Duncan F. Kenner was a sugar planter, horse breeder, lawyer and political figure during the antebellum period. The walls of Ashland (as the Kenner plantation was then known) were adorned with paintings of horses, and the grounds included a racetrack. Kenner himself was a keen advocate of scientific methods of farming and experimented with innovations in the sugar production industry. Kenner is said to have been the first in the state to use the portable railroad to carry cane from fields to mill.
When Kenner returned to Ashland at the end of the Civil War, he found his plantation in ruins and his slaves freed, the place having been raided by Union troops in 1862. At the age of 52 he had to start over again. Re-employing as laborers the slaves that had been freed, he built up an estate. When Duncan Kenner died, his plantation was even larger and more valuable than it had been before the war. In 1889, Ashland was purchased by John B. Reuss, a German immigrant who became a prosperous sugar planter. Reuss re-named the plantation "Belle Helene" in honor of his granddaughter, Helene Reuss.

Remarks: Will plant corn, cotton, potatoes & rice.


Message Board: Just to be sure we don't go overboard here, while a few River Road plantation homes have been saved by corporations who purchased the property, many, many more have been demolished by those corporations, and many before the 1970's.
Remember Welham!? destroyed in the middle of the night by Ethyl Corporation, or Uncle Sam, etc, etc, etc
Some of those saved are not even allowed to have their immediate surroundings and landscaping left intact, which hardly deserves intense accolades!
Nonetheless, I do applaud Shell, Mr. Wheeler, Dr. Bob Judice, and Joe and his coworkers for their rescue and restoration work on Ashland, which is truly a treasure.


KENNER, Duncan F., planter, born in New Orleans in 1813; died there, 3 July, 1887. He became a wealthy sugar-planter, served for several terms in the Louisiana legislature, and was a member of the State constitutional conventions of 1845 and 1852, presiding over the latter. He was a member of the Confederate congress, and chairman of its ways and means committee, and in 1864 was sent by Jefferson Davis as special commissioner to England and France, to secure the recognition of the southern Confederacy. Much of his property was confiscated on the capture of New Orleans in 1862, but at his death he was again a millionaire. He was fond of horses, and owned one of the largest stock-farms in the United States. Edited Appletons Encyclopedia, Copyright 2001 VirtualologyTM

Notes


(Named in William's will). There was a son, John Lee, who evidently did not marry as he left his estate to his brothers and sisters. John Lee's will proved in Charlotte Co. Va. 1/6/1783. In it John mentions sisters Sarah Penn and Mary Waldon. So it is evident Sarah did marry a Penn and indicates George Penn's first wife was Sarah Lee. [S706]
