Duncan F. Kenner was a member of the Louisiana Constitutional Conventions of 1845 and 1852. He was a planter that founded Ashland Plantation in Ascension Parish. He also had financial investments in six other plantations (Bowdon, Houmas, Hollywood, Hermitage, Fashion, and Roseland). He was also the brother-in-law of Richard Taylor. He served in the 1st and 2nd Confederate Congress as a C.S.
