Birth: Jan. 22, 1790 Death: Mar. 17, 1853 White Post Clarke County Virginia, USA Rev. Thomas Kennerly was born 22 Jan 1790 in Augusta County, Virginia, the son of Rev. James Kennerly, Jr. and Mary "Molly" Bear. Thomas married Ann Susan Carnegy on 30 May 1822 and they had six children together. They constructed the brick house at "Greenway Court" in 1828. Although he was a Methodist minister, Thomas retired from active service in the pulpit after his marriage. In his later years he was a devoted fox hunter. Thomas died 17 Mar 1853 at Greenway Court and is believed to be buried in the Greenway Court Cemetery with his wife.
William and Betsy and Ann S. are to be found in the all but obliterated private family grave yard located on a knoll 400 yards to the northwest of "Greenway Court". Colonel Martin and Thomas Kennerly are also buried there according to a letter written by William C. Kennerly 9 Apr 1879 from Winchester to Burton Harrison (the father of Fairfax Harrison), states that Colonel Martin, Mrs. Crawford, and Mrs. Gildart were buried in the plot. Ann Kennerly inherited "Greenway Court", and about 1828, she and her husband erected a brick dwelling which was practically consumed by fire in 1872, but was restored.
