Record of Samuel Kerr in Augusta County, VA
Samuel probably moved to SC with his sons as it is possible that the Samuel Kerr who platted 100 acres in Oct 1762 on Long Cane Creek was this Samuel and not his son Samuel who married Mary Calhoun. There is a memorial for this land April 1, 1763, so the land was granted between Oct 1762 and April 1763. However there is another plat for 100 acres by Samuel Kerr Mar 6, 1767. Granted before a memorial for that land Aug 20, 1771.
