Pending Research: List of Heirs

The 'report' of the lawsuit titled Thomas Buckingham versus Heirs of Daniel Kennedy is from the unsourced book by Thomas Bailey. (Yes, I know he pretty much said his book was a vanity book in his preface, but I do not think he just 'made-up' some lawsuit.) [3]

This is the only list of Heirs:

  • Heirs of Daniel Kennedy who were 'reported' as sued in 1810 by Heirs of Thomas Buckingham (only source of childlist, original of suit not found): The list below is in the numbered order as listed in the 'report' of the lawsuit. Daniel's widow, Margaret, was listed, along with sons and sons-in-law. Since Margaret was the only female listed, it stands to reason she was the widow of Daniel.
  • In the list below, the marriages are unsourced. The marriages were copied from this list of children: [4] Birthdates were removed from the list below: They continue to be unsourced and there was not a TN before 1796.
