I have no idea how to get this person out of your family tree, but the problem with on-line family trees is that some information gets mixed up. I do have some information about Anna Blythe Kennedy. Known ancestry of Anna Blythe Kennedy:(Line 1) Andrew Little married Annie Blythe. They had one daughter, Olive Little. (Line 2) William Campbell left Scotland and settled in County Down, Ireland between 1680 and 1700. In succeeding generations, the oldest son was always named William and the second son was always named Robert. Anna's ancestry contains one Robert Campbell and several William Campbells. One of these William Campbells married Nancy Sommerville. They had several children including a daughter named Martha. William Campbell and his living children immigrated to the US in the 1830s or 1840s, eventually settling in Allegheny County, PA. (Nancy and one of the children having died in Ireland.) (Line 3) Samuel Kennedy was born in Londonderry, Derry, Ireland on Sept 27, 1785. He married Jane Gilfillan also of Londonderry. In 1819, together with their children, Achsah, Joseph, John, Samuel, and Elizabeth, Samuel and Jane immigrated to the US in 1819. They settled in Allegheny County, PA where Margaret, Ellen, Maria, and David were born. Of the 4 sons,only 2 married and had families. Only David had sons. David married Martha Campbell.
