Kenton Harper Kinney was a son of Robert and Rachel Kinney. He was born near Staunton, Virginia, July 19, 1853, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Uriah Zaerr, Jan. 29, 1941, age 87 years.

When he was five years old his parents moved to Knoxville, Kentucky, where he grew to manhood and was married Jan 6, 1875, to Oberie L. Simpson.

To this union, six children were born, five of whom survive: Mrs. Uriah Zaerr and Mrs. George Cossel, both of Downing; Chesley Kinney of Pulaski; Leon Kinney of Ottumwa and Fred Kinney of Downing. One son, Robert, died at his home in Ottumwa, Sept. 9, 1933.

His wife died Jan. 1, 1895. He was married, Feb. 14, 1899, to Augusta Webb, who died June 17, 1929.

He came to Missouri over 50 years ago and spent most of his life on his farm near Hitt. He lived one year near Carmi, Ill., and a few years in Downing. The past ten years he has made his home with his children.

Soon after coming to Missouri, he united with the United Brethren Church at Barker and remained a faithful member until his death.

Besides the three children, he leaves nineteen grandchildren and thirty-one great grandchildren.
