I am trying to find information on David C. Kennedy that I believe lived in Davidson Co before moving to Stokes County after his marriage.
What I know for sure is that David C. Kennedy (abt1842-) m. Martha Jane Kiser (1836-1927) in 1866. They lived in Stokes County, NC had 4 kids, Minnie, Yettie, Hilary, and Seaton Oscar. My aunt thinks the C in his name may stand for Crockett. Then my great grandfather Seaton Oscar moved to Davidson Co., NC where our family has lived since.
David disappeared after 1880 (census after 1880 census show only his wife still saying she was married, not widowed, and the number of year she had been married), so I have no record of his death or his parents.
I am assuming he is the son of George Washington Kennedy based on census from 1850 in Davidson Co and 1860 in Stokes Co that I found in which are the only listing of a David in the area and his ages line up.
If I am right, his parents are George Washington Kennedy (b.1815) and Zelpha Stokes (b.1815) with siblings Louisa, Elizabeth, Frances, Chriscilla and Amanda. They lived in Davidson Co., NC and after 1850 moved to Stokes Co., NC. But I have nothing on parents of George or Zelpha.
The 1840 census shows many Kennedy's on the same page as George. Since George is 25 in this census the most likely parent is Epaphoodilas Kennedy who is in his 50s. Others on the page are James Kennedy Sr, John Kennedy, Thomas Kennedy, Henry Kennedy, and Sherwood Kennedy Sr who is in his 70s. James Kennedy Sr in his 60s so he could possibly be Georges father.
Anyone who can provide any knowledge of this family would be greatly appreciated.
