F. P. Kenner [a/k/a Frank P. Kenner] has recently employed our local undertaker, Joe Diemer, to disinter the remains of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Beverly Kenner and re-inter them in Woodlawn Cemetery. The elder Kenners were among the pioneer citizens of this county, and lived on a farm where a portion of Elvins now stands. They were buried in the Kenner Graveyard, near the new Doe Run mill. It became evident that the chat dump would eventually cover the spot.

Mr. Kenner had been buried 44 years; his wife had been buried 14 years. Two small children of Honsand Kenner, a brother of F. P. Kenner were also disinterred and removed to Woodlawn. They had been dead something near 40 years. The remains of Abe Cowan, who had been buried 21 years ago in the Layne Graveyard were removed this week, to Woodlawn. He was a brother-in-law to F. P. Kenner. His aged widow still lives here, but is quite seriously ill.

The following information pertaining to the Kenner plot was obtained from the record book for Woodlawn Cemetery.  As of 2003, no stones could be located at Woodlawn Cemetery for any of these graves.
