Scipio Africanus Kenner
Scipio was incorrectly listed as "Samuel A. Kemer," in the 1860 Census.
More research is needed to confirm Scipio's date of birth as family tradition, indirect sources, and secondary sources conflict. At this time, the birth date listed reflects family tradition from Family Tree at FamilySearch.org, data from the company roster, and the 1860 Census.
