They had a 3 year old son Andrew Kennedy, went first to Canada, then to the USA in 1847.  They came to cincinnati, then  up river to Cannelton, Indiana. James died in 1893, Andrew died in 1913, can't find anyting on Mary Maher.

Mary Mahar's gravesite is in the St. Augustine cemetery in Leopold IN. I have not been able to locate it. The old stones are too difficult to read. If anyone has a picture or location I would appreciate it. She was my great-great grandmother.

The Mahers (Meaghers, O'Mearas etc) were numerous around Aghnameadle parish in Upper Ormond in County Tipperary in Ireland from ancient times. There were also many Kennedys in this area whose families had been there for centuries. This would probably be a good place to start looking. Toomyvara is where the records are kept.
