The earliest Kennedy I know belonging to my tree is William Kennedy.He is the Clothier of Preston, CT that I mentioned in my initial post.I don't have the name of his spouse and only have one child, Hugh.As you can see I wasn't aware he had a son named Robert.Any ancestry you can share belonging to my DAVID KENNEDY, son of Hugh and Rachel, is appreciated.
I have the following children listed for Hugh and Rachel (Billings) Kennedy m. abt. 1725:
Mary Kennedy, b. November 28, 1726

As I mentioned in my post, MARY KENNEDY was born 21 Dec 1764 in Voluntown, New London County, CT, and died 22 Dec 1817, Norway, Herkimer County, New York. She married LEWIS BARNES about 1788, son of Comfort Barnes and Hannah Cowee. Lewis was born August 21, 1765, New Ashford, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and died July 17, 1840, Norway, Herkimer County, New York.Lewis and Mary (Kennedy) Barnes are buried in the Barnes Cemetery, Norway, Herkimer County, NY.
Lewis and Mary (Kennedy) Barnes had 4 children.They were:
Mariam Barnes, b. July 29, 1789
REBECCA BARNES, b. January 04, 1792 (MY 3rd GREAT-GRANDMOTHER)
Hannah Barnes, b. December 01, 1793
Comfort Barnes, b. July 07, 1796
REBECCA BARNES was born on January 4, 1792 in New York, and died September 22, 1868, Rose, Wayne County, NY.She married WILLIAM GRISWOLD on August 17, 1809 in NY, son of Daniel Griswold and Mary UNKNOWN.He was born October 10, 1786 in Connecticut, and died January 05, 1852, Rose, Wayne County, NY.Both William and Rebecca (Barnes) Griswold are buried in the Ferguson Corners Cemetery, Galen, Wayne County, NY.
The WILLIAM GRISWOLD mentioned in the preceding paragraph is where I connect to the Kennedy line.I have a fairly complete pedigree to the present.
