I am looking for any information on a man named Kennedy who died at the gold diggings near Westport, New Zealand around noon on January 5, 1903. It was determined he had bled to death from a self inflicted gunshot wound to his arm; likely an accident. I have not been able to find anything to date. He was a NZ American Civil War veteran and I would like to compile a short story on him for the Australasian American Civil War Veterans Memorial at www.acwv.info. Any help will be appreciated. jamesmgray@bigpond.com
