Do you know if your William Kennedys are related to a Martin Kennedy b.abt 1811 in PA?Martin married Sarah Paget Sept 1830 in Brown Co., OH.Martin & Sarah's daughter Mary Washburn Kennedy married my 2nd great-grandfather Elvin F. Austin in York Co., NE in 1876.
You may already have this:In the 1850 census of Clark Twp., Brown Co. there is a household headed by a William Kennedy, age 48, born PA.Other members of the household (all born in OH) are: Eunice age 42 Ulyses S. age 22 Elizabeth A. 17 Mary E. 15 William B. 13 Lucretia J. 11 Martin V. 7 Hannah J. 2 Nancy 1
In 1860 they are still in Clark Twp., Brown Co.: Wm. age 58 Eunice age 51 Van Buren age 17 Hannah J. age 11 Nancy age 10 John w. age 9 Jacob D. age 7 Drucilla age 8
I believe that Wm. & Eunice's daughter Hannah J. became the wife of Daniel A. Paget in La Salle Co., IL in Dec. 1867.Daniel's parents are said to have been Charles P. Paget & Catherine Eliza Kennedy, d/o Hugh Kennedy from Brown Co.
