RE: [Bann Valley] Kennedy


Like a dog with a bone, I could not let this one go.

I assumed that you had checked the Bann Valley website since you posted on
it and maybe you have and already know that your great grandfather married
in Moneydig Presbyterian Church.  This is the entry from the website:
KENNEDY Church	29/11/1855	f-b-f	Caheny	Alexander	f
TORRENS Martha	18-s 	Culnaman	Hugh	f	Thomas Torrans
Alexander Kennedy	P24 #48

Samuel does not appear to have married there but this is probably him
witnessing a marriage there:
Torrens David S	03/09/1896	f-b-f	Cooleyman	David	f	Hogg
Margaret 	f-s-na	Cooleyman	James	f	Samuel Kennedy
Jane Kennedy	P14 #27

No sign of Church in the transcriptions of the gravestones at Moneydig but
the grave of Alexander and his wife, Anne, who lived at Cullyramer in 1901
and their son, James, is there:
