Jerry (Jere) T Kentner was granted land in London, Ontario, after the war. At some point he made his way to Erin and in 1825 he was elected to Township Council.
He sold his property, Lot 32 Conc 3, to his son. He helped his son petitioning the Provincial Heir & Divisee Commission for a Loyalist Land Grant, as his Mother was the daughter of a Loyalist.
His son was given 200 acres on Lot 5 Conc 9. It is believed he also helped one of his Son’s set up a Lumber Business in Georgetown. There is a picture of Jerry & his wife Alice’s headstone, on the Find a Grave website.
