Thank you for your response. I've actually completed the research I was doing a while back as part of my search for a Revolutionary War ancestor, Benjamin Kennedy (8th gen). As a result, I completed my application to the DAR and officially became a member yesterday, on the 25th anniversary of my father's death. Frederic Wallace Kennedy (my father) died on April 9, 1986. He was the only child of Ralph Warren Kennedy and Vivian May Kennedy (Parsons) and the grandson of George and Lizzie.
If I can be of any assistance to you or your friend, please feel free to contact me.
