According to the Ulrich Mertens book, page 355, Kenneges (aka Kenegos) was located in the Crimea/Kertsch/Semikolodzy/Petrowsk. It was founded in 1872, ev. (Lutheran), and was part of the parish of Z├╝richtal, but also Catholic. Soviet seat. Consumer driven. Schools 1-4 in 1926. Parish and deanery in Simpferopol. Population was 98 in 1904; 328 in 1911; 346 in 1914; 346 in 1918; 330 in 1919; and 367 in 1926.

There was also a Chutor Keneges in the Crimea/Dshankoj/Petrowsk, est. 1872, was Mennonite. It was located 20 km east of Dshankoj.

Thank you! The last letter that came out of there from the Kilber-Murschel family was in 1934. We know Wilhelmina died in 1943, but we don't know if it was in Kenneges. That area was right in the path of some major WW II stuff.

The Jewish Gazeteer gave me four options for Kenneges/Keneges. Figuring out which one it is will be challenging. I suspect it will be the oldest one, as the GRs tended to extend into existing or defunct Tatar villages and somehow incorporate the names with a German name.

Found it! Krasnohirka. Still a substantial village there, and it looks like there's been work done on what appears to have been a small German cemetery. Also some WW II memorials. Lots of ruins, but then it was a major combat site, as the Nazis had a HQ there.
