Re: Hamilton Cannady (Kennedy) from Marion Co. Al.
my great grandfather Joel Jarrison Bailey married _________ Kennedy.They had two children 1. William Bailey 1866 and a daughter Nancy "Nantie" Bailey born in same year (not twins). ____________Kennedy died before 1870 and Grandpa Joel J Bailey married a Nancy Jane Kennedy and they had 9 more children of which my grandpa Columbus Richard Bailey is the youngest.We do NOT know who the 1st wife is.Rumor has it that it was Nancy Jane Kennedy's sister.And some say the spelling may be wrong.Cannady, Canadie, etc.Any help would be greatly appreciated.They lived in Gwinnet County, GA.
