Ward R. Kennedy, of Tipton,MI &Fayette Co., PA, grad.Adrian College, MI abt 1870
I have an original carte de visite photograph of “W. R. Kennedy – Washington Court House, Fayette Co.”, taken about 1870s, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members.
Photo was taken in Adrian (Lenawee Co.) MI in about 1870 and it looks like a graduation photo. I contacted the Alumni Association of Adrian College in Adrian (which opened in 1859), and they responded that records show a Ward R. "Kenedy" of Tipton (Lenawee Co.) MI who was a college junior in 1867-1868.
I found Ward Kenedy in the 1870 census for Seneca (Lenawee Co.) MI, age abt 33 and born in Massachusetts. Ancestry Family Tree shows Ward Kennedy, born 1837 Massachusetts, son of Asa and Mary Kennedy. By 1880, Ward and his family lived in DeKalb Co., IN where he was a livestock dealer.
