JOHN CONRAD KENNERLY

John Conrad Kennerly was born in Wilkerson County, Mississppi in 1839.  His father Samuel Kennerly was born in 1818 in the Barnwell / Orangeburg area of  South Carolina.  Early on, Samuel and his family had relocated to  Wilkerson County, Mississippi and by 1850 (850 Census records) were living in Rapides Parish, Louisiana which is across the Mississippi River from Wilkerson County.

In Louisiana in 1864, John Conrad Kennerly married Elizabeth Ann Hetherwick, the daughter of England-born William J Hetherwick and Mary Matilda Tanner.

After the Civil War, in about 1870, John, Elizabeth, and their family (infant son and daughter)  made the move to Brazil.  In 1871, their first Brazilian daughter was born, followed by seven more children. Perhaps they were influenced by Elizabeth's sister and brother-in-law - The Rev. Richard Ratcliff who had made the decision to move to Brazil back in 1867.  They were part of the Frank McMullen group out of Galveston, Texas  

Parson Ratcliff and family had settled in Santa Barbara, d'Oeste and so the Kennerlys followed suit - intermarrying with the many other Con-federado families in the area.

Obituary

Daryl Letho Gee, age 88, of Orem Utah, reunited

with the love of his life on Feb 22, 2022.  Daryl

was born in 1933 in Ashton, Idaho to Letho Lafa-

yette Gee and Sarah Evelyn Brower.  Daryl met

Frances Augusta MacKnight in 1954 in San Diego,

CA.  They began dating and wrote daily letters to

one another during Frances’ LDS mission in her

native Brazil.  She and Daryl were engaged the day

she returned from her mission and were married

several months later.  This month marks 64 years

since they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles, CA LDS temple.  They had six children Catherine (Arthur) Taylor, Sandra (Scott) West, Keith (Lori) Gee, Maile (Jerry) Jewkes, Elena Gee, and Daphne (Bradford) Nelson. He was a devoted husband.  Their love for their children and for one another will forever be remembered by their posterity. 

Daryl served in the U.S. Navy for 30 years and retired with the rank of Commander.  His specialties were communications and electronics.  During his Naval career, he served in Alaska, California, Maryland, Hawaii, and Washington D.C.  One of his last assignments was in Iran.  He loved his country and served with honor.  Although he was often away from his family during his time of service, he and Frances continued to write daily letters to each other throughout his 30-year Naval career.  After his retirement from the Navy in 1982, he continued his communications career, moving his family to Maryland. 

Daryl was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. During his life, he served in various callings including counselor to several bishops, as a bishop himself, and as a member of a stake presidency.  He served as a senior missionary with Frances in her native Brazil.  He and Frances also served for three years as 1st Counselor in the temple presidency and Assistant Matron respectively of the Washington DC Temple.

Daryl is survived by his six children, 24 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren, and his sister Carolyn Eischens.  He was preceded in death by his sisters Jessie Darlene Barger and Mary Delores Branson and his dear wife Frances MacKnight Gee, with whom he is reunited nearly 13 years after her death.

Frances Augusta MacKnight was born on 8 June 1935 in Santa Barbara, D'Oeste, San Paulo, Brazil, of Henrique Clinton MacKnight and Elsa Quillin. She was the second of four children; she followed a sister, Hel Hena (Soiland), and was followed by two brothers, Henrique (Rick) and Roberto (Dinho). She was the fourth generation born in Brazil of Southerners who went to Brazil after the Civil War. Her family settled in Santa Barbara, which is near what is now the industrial center of Americana.

 

Her family still resides on the farm where the family originally settled and where Frances, her father, and other family members were born. She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she was 16 years old. Her family came to the United States when she was 18 years old and settled in San Diego. There she met her husband to be, Daryl Letho Gee in 1954.

 

She later returned to Brazil on a mission for the church, following which they were married in the Los Angeles California Temple. Daryl was in the Navy and they spent the first year of their marriage in Maryland where Daryl was in school. He later accepted a commission in the Navy, following which they mutually agreed that he would make the Navy a career. They lived in a number of locations including California, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, D.C., and again in California where Daryl retired. They were blessed with six children: Catherine (Taylor), Sandra (West), Keith, Elena, and Daphne (Nelson). After the children were in school, some in college, Frances returned to school and received a bachelor's degree in Spanish and a master's degree in Spanish and English as a Second Language. She spoke six languages and excelled at teaching, although she did not pursue that as a full-time career.

 

She became involved in volleyball, mostly because of the talents of her children in that sport. Following Daryl's retirement from the Navy, they spent ten years in Washington, D.C., where Daryl was employed in the satellite communications business. He was called to be the Bishop of the Temple Ward and they became temple ordinance workers where they had wonderful experiences for many years. Frances continued her activities in volleyball and became a national and international official. Two of her daughters (Maile and Daphne) followed her example and became national officials also.

 

Following Daryl's second retirement, they moved to Utah where a number of their children were living. After two years, they applied for a mission, hoping to be assigned to Brazil. They were successful and were assigned to the Porto Alegra Brazil Southern Mission. After only a few months, they had to return home due to the illness of Frances. When they learned that they would be unable to return to Brazil, they petitioned the Missionary Department to transfer them to the Temple Department and allow them to finish their mission in the Washington, D.C. Temple. Their request was approved and they spent more than two years there. Frances served in many capacities, enhanced by her wonderful language skills. She served as a shift supervisor and later as Assistant Matron when Daryl was called to serve in the temple presidency. Following their return home, they served in the Mt. Timpanogos Utah Temple for several years, where she again served as a shift supervisor.

 

In 2006, after several years of trying to find the source of the health issues she was having, she was seen by The Mayo Clinic where she was diagnosed with a terminal neurological disease called Cortico Basal Ganglionic Degeneration (CBGD), a cousin to ALS. She suffered courageously with the disease for seven years, being cared for at home by her family. She passed away on 5 June 2009 and was buried on her 74th birthday, 8 June 2009 in the Veteran's National Cemetery in Bluffdale, Utah. She left a wonderful and inspiring legacy that will always be shared by those who knew and loved her.

Walker Joao Keese, My Father                                                                                                                             

By Willis Alice Keese

Writing about my father as I remember him during the five and a half years I lived with him is hard for me because what I remember about him are not good things. My father had a terrible temper and I was afraid of him even though I still loved him. My brothers and I got spanked a lot with his belt buckle. When I was five years old we lived in Monte Mor where I was born. My father worked nights and my mother worked days so I was in charge of taking care of my two younger brothers while my father slept.

One day I got stuck between the toilet and the wall and I started to cry. My Dad woke up and he was irate. It was pretty scary. It was while living in Monte Mor that the neighborhood children teased me unmercifully. They would tease me about my blue eyes by saying, "Olho de gato, quarenta e quatro", which means "cat's eyes, forty-four". It rhymes in Portuguese. They would also laugh at my skin for I had a lot of freckles. They called me "banana nanica". The Rohwedder family lived in Monte Mor as well and I had two girl cousins who used to take me to church with them on Sundays. They were Presbiterian. I loved going to church with them. One day my cousins let me return home from church by myself and I got lost. I could see a big black woman down the street I thought I had to go on, but she scared me so I just stood there not knowing what to do. Finally, she noticed me and came to ask where I lived. I remember the name of my street and told her. Well, it was not down her street. She was very kind. She held my hand and took me home. Mama was leaning out the window with a worried look on her face.

 

My great-grandmother, Maria Hubinger Rohwedder, was alive at that time and I can still see her coming to our house with a basket on her arm. I knew that in that basket were good things to eat. Then we moved to the "Fazenda da Rocinha" in Morro Azul in Rio de Janeiro. I loved that place. Aunt Willis would come to visit and it was while we lived there that she taught me how to knit. We climbed up a tree and knitted there. A good memory I had there was when cousins came to visit. Jose Buarque de Macedo, Filho (Zezinho) gave me a doll. He made me feel so special. I was a bed wetter and the way my father tried to cure me of it was by whipping me in the morning if my bed was wet. So, one day I woke up before he showed up, crawled out the window and hid under it by the wall. He found me there and I must have looked petrified. It must have softened his heart because he stopped whipping me for that.

 

Another incident happened when my mother gave me a plate of food and told me to go out to the patio to eat. When I laid my plate on the cement it may have cracked it, I really don't remember if I broke it or not. My father was up on the water tower fixing something and saw me. He must have thought I had broken the plate because he came down and hit me over the head with the tool in his hand. My head started to bleed, as is the case with head injuries and he grabbed me and took me to a sink to wash the blood off. I think that frightened him. It was not long after that incident that Mama left him and moved in with her parents in Dobrada.

 

My father went to Dobrada once to try to get mama to go back with him but she wouldn't do it and he became very angry. He was kind to me then and promised to give me some fabric for mama to make me a dress. It never happened. Years later when I went to Rio de Janeiro to visit Aunt Fannie, I mentioned that and she took me shopping for some fabric. She always watched out for my Dad.

 

The next time I saw him I was fourteen years old. I went with a friend to visit cousins in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro, and we got together for an hour. Before I left Brazil when I was eighteen to come to the United States, I wrote him and he went to the airport to say goodbye. I got to see him one more time and that was when he came to visit me and my family in 1965. It was such a wonderful experience to see him and get reacquainted. It was a very healing time for both of us. It was so interesting to hear him speaking English when he first arrived here. The Americans who immigrated to Brazil taught English to their children who in turn taught it to their children. The interesting thing is that their accent remained that of the 1860s. When Papai noticed the difference, he became embarrassed and stopped talking in English.

College Play Actor Killed With Gun Using 'Blanks'

Ridgecrest, Calif. (AP) - An actor was shot to death

during a college play rehearsal Wednesday night with

a gun that supposedly contained blanks, Kern County

sheriff's deputies said.


Killed was Wayne R. Carpenter, a 37-year-old father

of six.  Carpenter was taking part in a rehearsal for

the play "Oliver" as part of a Bakersfield College Desert

Division night class. Three of his children are in the cast ad were at the rehearsal. Coroner's Deputy Jim Gay said Thursday an autopsy recovered traces of lead from Carpenter's body. Gay said that when the blanks were prepared for the play, traces of lead apparently remained in the cartridges.


Carpenter was hit by a shot fired from about 15 feet by Wint Dillon, a Marine Sergeant at China Lake. Dillon was not held, deputies said.  Witnesses said Carpenter fell about 4 1/2 feet from a platform on which he was standing and lay on the floor while the play continued. However, when he started groaning the play was stopped and the wound was discovered.  It was the first time the gun had been used in rehearsals, deputies said.
