The name Kennedy is the high point of my research. I have reached a dead end with my Kennedy family with Evan R. Kennedy and his sister Lydia Beaubien. Evan was born in South Bend Indiana in 1824. I have been unable to find who his mother and father were. They were originally from Pa. or at least that is what an article about E.R. Kennedy states. Lydia Beaubien married into the Chicago Beaubien fur trading family. She went with the Potawatomi Indian tribe to Kansas in the 1840's. Other family members included in my family quest is Clements, Fisher, Beaubien, Ogee, . Many of these family members were from Kansas, Silverlake, Oklahoma Shawnee.I would like to have more information on the family when to moved from PA, to Indiana. It looks like the Kennedy's lived in Laporte co, Indiana, Chicago, and perhaps southern Michigan.
