The William Kerbys came to Hur, Calhoun County from Greene County PA before the
Civil War, building a log cabin on Barnes Run. William Kerby was born in 1800 and
married Mary White in Tyler County.
He later married Harriett Riggs, daughter of David and Kesiah Slider Riggs, and they
had seven children, one being Sylvester. Most of the folks attending the reunion last
Sunday at the Mt. Zion Community Park are his descendants, having sprung from the
