  1. Quick Question: Is there away to find more information about Thomas Kennedy, of Covington. Died in August, 1821, aged 80 years. R 8/20 ?

    He might be a descendant or relation of my Great-Grandmother Florence Kennedy Lyen.

    Trusting your move to Michigan has gone well. I enjoy and am quite glad you continue Kentucky Kindred!

    Best Regards,

    J.L. *James P. Lyen*
