Thanks you Adele for informing us how these two Kenny sides merged. My late mother verbally informed me of this ... but no documentation, but she stated there was a family history SOMEWHERE. I am from the Hugh line with the middle initial being W. (or first name William). Another quirk is that the first born is named Thomas.
My grandfather's first cousin was Thomas J. who lived in Philadelphia area for most of his life. In the early 1900's, Thomas changed his last name to Kenney by accident. However, my mom hinted that his line was origionally from Maryland.
My Grandfather's grandfather supposedly was a shoemaker in Roscommon. My Grandfather = Kieran W., his dad Patrick, his grandfather (I believe) is Michael.
