One Response to Genealogy Workshop Set

  1. Dwight Kennedy says:

    Hello. My name is Dwight Kennedy. I am looking for information on my ancestor who emigrated from Mifflin County, PA (now Juniata Co.) in 1832 to Crawford County, Ohio. His name was Thomas Kennedy (born 1792) and as far as the Western Reserve Historical Society has it, he was the son of Andrew Kennedy (born 1747, Imigrated to Philadelphia in 1770).
    I have had no luck finding anything about Andrew, so I would like to find out anything I can about Thomas’ parents and his life in Pennsylvania. I do know that he is buried in Sixteen Cemetery in Crawford County, OH and was married to Nancy Kerr. They had several children, some in PA and some in OH. Thank you for your time.
