      If John Kennerly has the middle name 'Price' I cannot locate a record showing any middle name, in Augusta. Naming patterns for these Augusta residents are evident in the Reynolds descendants. If he is born to John Kennerly of Augusta in 1774, then John Kennerly in Tenessee is only 4 years old when his father dies.-mfe
