Kennedy - Canada to AL
My grandmother was Hazel Maria Kennedy, born 20 Oct 1893, in Oak Grove, (Talladega Co?) AL. (My mother often pronounced her middle name as Mariah)
She married Grady John Flynn, on 28 Dec 1911, in Whistler, AL.
Her father was John Bernard Kennedy, born 20 Feb 1871, in AL
Her mother was Lura Anna Mitchell, born c1870, in Tioga Co, PA
John's father was Alfred R W Kennedy, born c1823,in Canada.
John's mother was Susanna E (Malone?) born c1832, in AL.
One of my aunts once told me that she thought the Kennedy's were from Saskachewan.
My mother once made a trip to Niagra Falls, and then into Ontario. She said she thought John Bernard had a brother there, that was a priest.
I found one census that shows Alfred had a brother (Jas M) that was a doctor.
I have Alfred's name, but haven't been able to get any further then that. Any little help, hint, or tidbit of information, would be appreciated.
Below are some census records I've located with the Kennedy family.
