Rebecca Kemp (~1795 – ~1880) [1850 USC] [1860 USC] [1870 USC] was born in Kernersville, Forsyth Co., NC and married Smith Gregory (~1796 – 9 May 1848) [1840 USC], born in Caswell Co., NC, son of Squire William Henry Hawkins (Squire Bill) and Martha Bledsoe Gregory, Sr., both of NC, after 1812 and resided in Dixon Springs, Smith Co., TN. Both Rebecca and Smith Gregory passed in Smith Co., TN, and are buried in the Will Gregory Cemetery in Smith Co., TN. Smith Gregory and William Henry Gregory (husband of Elizabeth Kemp, daughter of Burrell Kemp Sr.) were brothers. Rebecca and Smith had 8 children. Smith Gregory’s daughter Elizabeth married Solomon Kemp’s (1782 – 1861/1869) grandson Wylie.
The parents of Rebecca Kemp were Burrell P. Kemp Sr. (1760/1771 – 1 Sep. 1827) [1800 USC/GNC] [1820 USC/WTN] was born in NC/VA and married Nancy Foster/Fauster/Fouster (1765/1775 – ~1835) [1830 USC/MIL], born in VA, daughter of John Foster/Fauster, on 15 Dec. 1791 [WCNCMR], in Wake Co., NC. They migrated from Wake Co., NC, to Wilson Co., TN in 1806, settling in the Cainsville community. He died in Cainsville, Wilson Co., TN, she in Scott Co., IL. (Nancy Foster’s parents may have been John and Maria Johnston Foster.) [NOTE: A Nancy Kemp, age 80, is living with a Rachael McGee, age 55, in the 1850 Sumner Co., TN US Census.] They had seven children.
The parents of Burrell P. Kemp, Sr. were Henry B. Kemp (1731/1736/1739/1740/1743 – February 15, 1819<) [1790 USC/WNC] married Dinah Unknown (? - February 15, 1819<) ~1756. He was born in Queen Annes Co., MD (?) / Orange Co., NC (?) / VA (?), and emigrated prior to April 1745 with his father Richard to Johnston Co., NC. After Wake County was created from Johnston, Cumberland and Orange Counties, Henry, about 1804 - 1806, migrated from Wake Co., NC, to Wilson Co., TN, and then later to the Defeated Creek area of Smith Co., TN. Some sources have the migration beginning from Granville Co., NC, which was just north of Wake Co., NC. He died in Smith Co., TN. The extent of his issue is not definitively known.
The father of Henry Kemp was Richard Kemp (~1715 – [Oct. 1760-1800[) [1790 USC/WNC] married ~1735 is mentioned in the Johnston Co., NC, deed books as father of Henry Kemp and Henry’s wife being Dinah. He is also mentioned as a property owner in Johnston Co., NC., in April 1745.
