Thanks for the information and the link.The site seems to be accurate if incomplete. I descend from Sydney and Mary's daughter, Ida Caroline. I have a copy of the pages from the S.M. Kennedy bible.However, while I know who their children were, I have never known who her parents were.I have come across the name Thomas Howard Callis before (both Jr. and Sr.) and thought that they must be related.I just didn't know how.
Do you happen to know what the primary source is that connects Thomas and Elizabeth to Mary Ermine?Also, I've been trying to figure out where the "Marietta" comes from.The census, Kennedy bible and her headstone all refer to her as "Mary E.".She has always been "Mary Ermine" to the family and I have a copy of a letter written by her granddaughter, Wilfred Ermine Kennedy, to that effect.
