John & Florinda Kennedy in Leeds Grenville County Ontario
Frequently I respond to questions on Mailing Lists. I often spend a few hours researching for subscriber's ancestors. I thought it might be helpful to other descendants and researchers to see what I've found, so am posting bits of the original question, and my research into the family genealogy on Olive Tree Genealogy.
QUESTION ASKED ON MAILING LIST DECEMBER 2006
Florinda was married to John Kennedy who died about 1846in Leeds-Grenville County. She had a son James (Rosetta) and two daughters. I have never been able to find out the daughters' names. Florinda was born approx 1798, but I amnot sure where. James was married to Rosetta in 1854, in Leeds Co. I have never been able to find any information regarding his death, probably in Muskoka County. He had been a school teacher and then I believe a book-keeper. His death would be approx 1899. I cannot find a cemetery for his internment either. James is said to have been born inMass., USA. this may have been where is father first landed from Scotland. Did Florinda come with him, or did he meet her there?
MY ANSWERYou may already have this but James and his mother are inthe 1851 census for Crosby Tp Leeds County Ontario. It gives you a country (USA) for Florinda's birth.
You might want to try land records to see if you can findJames Kennedy pre 1851. With any luckthere could be a petition on file which has genealogy information.
