Mark Woods is my name. I reside in Dane County, Wisconsin presently.
Walter Brock & Sarah/Sally/Mary Nutter are ancestors of mine.
Their son Isaac Brock & his third wife Isabelle Kennedy are also my ancestors.
Isabelle's brother, Ronald A Kennedy, commanded the 5th Vermont Infantry during the Civil War,
rising from private to Lt Col & (in modern parlance) "full bird" by the war's end.
The Kennedys' mother was also called Isabelle, or a variant thereof.
Their father might have been a "Rolland Kenedie" (misspelled "Rllnd Knedis,"
I believe, in the index page on the 1830 census).
AC census pages on them indicate that the father, whoever he actually was,
had been born in Scotland. Ronald A Kennedy died in 1902 & was buried in Indiana.
Isabelle & Isaac died in Pawnee, Nebraska. (Isaac, by the way, served in an Iowa
cavalry regiment & was part of the Grierson Raid, on which a Hollywood movie was very loosely based.)
Any information on the Kennedys would be appreciated.
I can also share further information on specific online documents & descendants.
