Kennedy in Wayne County
Posted by: L.B. Hartley (ID *****2787) Date: April 30, 2005 at 15:24:15

I am trying to find parents of three siblings probably all born in Wayne Co from 1839-1841 in Williamsburg. Mary Elizabeth Kennedy Stewart died in Richmond in 1926. She is listed as being buried in Greensfork Cemetery, but I cannot find cemetery records from there. I would assume she would have been buried by her husband, David Stewart. Does anyone got any burial list from that Cemetery and be willing to look that up for me?.

Mary had two brothers Stephen (my grgrandfather) who married Sarah Jane Higginbotham and his brother George R. Kennedy (my gr uncle) who married Anna Culbertson and they lived in Randolph County. Both were in the Civil War.

Somehow the three were separated by death of parents, I am assuming, perhaps in some accident or one of the epidemics that were prevalent in 1849 and 1850 in Wayne and Randolph County. In the 1850 census for Randolph County, all three are listed, Mary Elizabeth with a Clayton Herison whom I believe may have married a Kennedy (i.e. an aunt of theirs) and the two boys went to live with a family by name of Puckett. This Puckett married Rebecca Kennedy, whome I believe may have been their aunt and sister to their father whose name I do not know.

Mary married David Stewart in 1855 in Wayne County and they had four children. She died in the home of her son-in-law Ohio Spillman. I only know that the parents of these three were born in Ohio according to the information on their census records. All three of these siblings were born in Indiana and I think probably were born in Williamsburg. Thanks for any help you can give me.
