Appears as Private on undated Muster Roll of Company B; KIA during siege at Vicksburg MS (shot in head) on unknown date; Subject of a lengthy MEMORIAL written by John T Nichols of Sumpter Co AL excerpted here:

"In Memorium
John L. Kerr
Co. “B” 40th Ala Regt. Inft.
     Killed June 19th, 1865
[read: 1863] at the siege of Vicksburg by a gunshot from the enemy which passed though his head killing him instantly.
     He enlisted in the noble cause of defending his country’s rights, enduring the hardships of a soldiers life, encountering the enemy in several skirmishes, though meeting with no serious harm until the siege of Vicksburg. With his courage unshaken he participated in the honors of that long and tiresome Siege. Which was one of the most trying times of this cruel war. Being surrounded by a tyrant foe, and exposed to their shot and shell by day and by night, to add to the horrors of that bloody Siege, starvation seem’d to stare him in the face. Though like a veteran true to his country’s cause, and inspired by thoughts of freedom and liberty, he braved the storm, murmering not at the hardships of a soldiers life. Yet the severity of hardships had no tendency to cloud his honored brow. Subsisting on mule beef, pea bread, or any thing he could chance to get, oft times a small biscuit for a days rations. Some times nothing to eat. Yet discouragement never entered his mind. With a light heart and pleasant smile, he would partake of the small morsal allowed him, with a look of contentment which seem’d to say all is well.
     His dear Brother was with him when he fell to rise no more, who intered his remains in the best manner he possibly could. Though he was lain in a rough box, his soul was embalm’d in the arms of Jesus, to that sweet home, home of rest.
     He was nurtured by pious, God fearing and God loving parents, Who taught him by their restrictions to love and fear the Lord.
     Being thus surrounded by pious Parents and Brothers and Sisters, who were journeying on their pilgrimage to that Heaven of rest. He felt it his duty to enlist as a soldier of the cross of Christ, and enrolled his name on the church book a member of the Presbyterian church, to live with the people of God. His path was marked with piety, in God his faith was strong, by which he was borne up, in such a trying conflict as the siege of Vicksburg. Though he was doom’d to fall in the bloom of youth, he fell a sleep in the arms of Jesus. Leaving his aged and pious Parents, and pious Brothers and Sisters with numerous friends and relatives to mourn his untimely loss. ...
[followed by a 24 verse poem]"
