Kenneth was born in Jamaica on October 2, 1896. He came to Toronto with his nanny and two brothers in 1905. His mother and sister Winnifred had arrived the year before. In January of 1916, Kenneth enlisted in the Canadian Army in Regina, Saskatchewan. His brothers Harold and Donald also served during World War I. In June of 1918, Kenneth was invalided to Canada. There was no record of injury and the reason may have been that he suffered from heart trouble. He was discharged on August 26, 1918. In 1919, Kenneth filed on land at NW 9-72-11-W6, SE 20-72-11-W6, and NW 17-72-11-W6. He later served as a postmaster in Lake Saskatoon. Kenneth died on February 12, 1928.
