     Thomas died at Kentucky. "Thomas was a wild and reckless man. He always lived in Berkeley and possessed the most indomitable resolution of any man in those parts. I presume if the Giant Goliath had appeared on earth and happened to offent cousin Tom, as we called him, I don't think he would have hesitated to have given the Giant a demonstration of his Valor."

John Kerney

     His body was interred at Berkeley County, Virginia. John Kerney first enlisted in the Continental Army on 2 August 1776, in Col. Hugh Stephenson's company of riflemen. Shortly after his enlistment Colonel Stephenson took ill and died. Capt. Abraham Shepherd took over then Sgt. John Kerney's company.

His company of riflemen were ordered to help with the defense of Fort Washington on the northern tip of Long Island. The battle that took place there on 15 Novemger 1776, was a serious military defeat for Gen. George Washington and the Continental Army. John Kerney's company along with approximately 3,000 soldiers and officers surrendered the following morning of 16 November 1776. For the next two years JohnKerney suffered a long and painful inprisonment at the hands of his British captors.

After his release in 1778 he returned to Berkeley County where he married Susanna Tabb. You would think that after fighting and bleeding for his new country, he would now stay in Berkeley County with his new bride and begin to raise a family. But John Kerney didn't do that, he enlisted in the Virginia State Line regiment of Joseph Crockett and was given the rank of captain.

Col. Crockett's regiment marched from here (Berkeley County, Virginia) to the forks of the Ohio River and down the Ohio River to help Col. George Rogers in the defense of the Northwestern Territories. There were many battles fought there, the most notable being the battles of Kaskaskia and Vincennes in February 1779.

At the conclusion of peace in 1783, Capt. John Kerney was stationed at the falls of the Ohio River. After the war he returned to Berkeley County, where he held the position of Justice of the Peace, predecessor of our current magistrate system, and was a member of the county court. John Kerney died on 27 December 1805.
