John Muldrow Kennedy, b. 1794-1826, father;(died from kick by a horse)


John Muldrow Kennedy, posthumous son, b.1827-1906


John Muldrow Kennedy, has some info Fr both of the above, BUT is not a brother to Kennedy-1680 above.

Tried to remove Kennedy-4548 as brother to 1690 but cannot bec his father is listed as the same father.  I am not sure if someone changed a brother’s name , but the grave marker on his page is the same headstone for Kennedy-1680 (personal knowledge).

Can someone help me get this corrected?  I would greatly appreciate your help.

The two ‘fathers’ have already been proposed for merging
by Marion Poole G2G Astronaut (1.2m points)
The person listed as a half brother to John Muldrow Kennedy (Sr.) is a combination of facts about both JMK Sr. & Sr.  Without removing some of the info on Kennedy-4548, he is not a clear match to the father.  I have tried it, but it does not work.  Even the grave marker is for the son.  If someone could guide me in a more step by step style, it would help e to learn.  Mymerges so far have been clear and clean-cut.

Your time and help is appreciated.  This is my mother-in-law’s grandfather and his father.
