So Cardinal, this is the property I sent to you (same parcel number), but you say this doesn't look like the house that sits there, right?  This is the house that the courthouse records show:

This property location matches up with the map Cardinal posted above and Jimmy came in chat with it and said, this is Charlies:

I just want to clarify my post above.  I don't know if this is where the farmhouse that burned was located. 
Kerr owned so much land in the area, it would be hard to say where it was unless you had actually been there and knew the location.

this is the picture i took with my phone (so its not great quality) and i didnt have much zoom.at first i didnt think it was the same house because it looked small but seeing them net to each other i think it is in fact the same as in concerned's picture. windows appear to match with one being smaller and the evergreen hides part of the house wich makes it look narrow. It just is now white.

Yay, we finally got the house figured out.  Now if someone could tell us for sure where the farmhouse that burnt was, we would have a clue about where that lunch box is (or was).

this shows the house on Charlies property was built in 1984, which I would assume to mean the fire that destroyed the original house was prior to this. some things I have read state Johnny was only there for 2 week before being sold and moved. But if kids were held there on and off for a couple of years then they would have been in this house too. I cant find anything in the local paper on a fire(which does NOT mean it didnt happen) COntrolled burn? he was a past fireman for SC. there was however a F4 tornado that was in the area of Sgt Bluff in July of '98. I would be curious to know the dates of Charlie being under surveilance by county attorney. other buildings built in 1950, so they were present at the time. No basement (if I am reding it correctly) so no land would have been dug up for that. however there is and above ground pool in the back by the deck now(not in picture- its only been there a few years)

I was curious, do you know if Charlie Kerr's 12 children are all biological children or any of them "adopted"?

I do not personally know if his children are his biological. I am curious to know if they are or are not. If some are not, are they someone's missing child? Just a thought.

Most likely they are biological

1st wife - they married when she was 18, first child at age 19
Daughter age 59
Son age 57
Daughter age 55
Son age 54
Son age 51
Son age 49 dob 9/23/59
Son age 49 dob 9/24/59
daughter age 45
son age 42
son age ? deceased

2nd wife - her current age is either 61 or 80 (conflicting reports)
son age 30
daughter age 24

I have always though it odd that his 2 kids from 2nd marriage would havve been small kids in 80s when all of this was going on. One being born during that time- 84/85ish.  his wife had to know what was going on... its a small farm for this area. Quite a few buildings but it not big by any means, and the house itself is small, on level with no basement, which is odd in a place where you get tornadoes and people never build houses with out basements. even modularhomes get put on them.

Yes, it is very odd that neither wife would have known what was going on. And if the 2nd wife is currently  80 that would make her 50 & 56 yrs old when these 2 children would have been born. That is quite unlikely at that age.

I have to think that their are people within the family that would or do know what was going on.
