Kennedy's in Williamson County
Posted by: Rick Gray (ID *****2720) Date: May 20, 2003 at 21:08:48

I have a 4th great-aunt and 4th great-uncle that lived in Williamson County and I would love to find out some info on them or see if there are any descendants in the area.

My 4th great-aunt was Martha Kennedy. She married Gilbert Marshall on 3 July 1839 in Maury County. They then moved to Williamson County. I do know that their son's home is now being used as a bed and breakfast in Franklin. They had children: Ellen Frances, Elizabeth Margaret, Joseph Kennedy, Ann Bell, Laura Amanda, Andrew Budd, and Lawrence Marshall. Any info that anyone can provide on this family would be great.

My 4th great-uncle was her younger brother William Kennedy. He was born about 1832 and I believe he married Susan J. Cartwright in Williamson County in 1859. On the 1860 Census he is listed there on page 208 in the Brentwood Post Office district with wife S. J. and child W. R. In 1864 his brother James had estate papers filed in Maury County, Tennessee. When payment was made on the estate in 1868 William is listed as being deceased with 2 minor children. On the 1870 Williamson County census in District 16 there is a Jane Kennedy with the children Josephine born about 1862 and Caladona born about 1864. James Kennedy's estate had to go back to court in 1870 and disbursement was made again in 1876. In the court minutes it lists William as being deceased and two minor children Josephine and Caldonia whose guardian is S. B. Frost. I have looked in the 1880 Census and cannot find the kids. They are not living with S. B. Frost and I do not know what happened to them or Jane who was living in 1870.

Any help with either of these families would be great. I thought maybe William's wife might be related to S. B. Frost or his wife but cannot find a connection.

Thanks so much for any help in advance.
