Mary Ann Blow was the oldest child of 11 born to James G Blow and Sarah Ann Darden. She married Robert Kemp Sept 23, 1858 Carroll County, Mississippi. James H Kemp, their only child was born Abt. July, 1860. Robert joined the civil war and came home on furlough for a brief time. After his return to duty, he never came home again. Speculation was he died during the war but other information suggests he started another family. At this time, I am still looking. Robert was my 2nd great grandfather.
