The firm KENNEDY & COX, 1800-1810

I would be interested in learning more about a company that went by the name Kennedy & Cox. This firm existed in the early part of the 19th century. I'd like to know who Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Cox were, the type of business they had and how long they were in business.

My interest in this company stems from a lawsuit they filed against my ancestor, Archibald Hood, in Greene County, Pennsylvania in 1806 (Archibald Hood was a resident of Greene County, PA). They were successful in prosecuting their claim and when it ended in 1810, it nearly left Archibald Hood bankrupt.

The court records in Greene County do not identify where this firm was located, but I'm making an educated guess that it was in the Fredericksburg area.

I'd be interested in comparing notes with anyone who knows something about the company.

Thanks!
