I found the obituary of Nan Decker nee Kennow that was submited by Shari Hahn. While reading through it I found the following sentence "Nan was born July 15, 1928, in Owen to William and Sadie (Riemer) Kennow." The last names of William and Sadie is not KENNOW but KEMNOW. There was an error on birth certificates for the childern of William and Sadie and the last name was inadvertently changed to KENNOW. The only child to change the name back to the correct spelling was Robert A. KEMNOW, MM1c/USN, C.o.P. Junction City PD. The correct spelling for Grandma and Grandpa is KEMNOW, I was just wanting to state that any references to William Albert KEMNOW and Sadie Dorthea Riemer KEMNOW or their ancestors that settled in the Clark Co area reflect the correct spellings for the family name. Thank you for your time.
