<< I show the above mentioned Wealthy who m. Richard
Creech Edenfield as the daughter of John and Sarah
Canady. If so, she could not be Eliza Jane Kennedy's
sister.

I have Elizabeth Jimmerson m. John Kennedy. >>

I had in my notes: most sources list him as "John"
Kennedy, but one source gave his name as "Solomon".

This whole Wealtha/Wealth CANADY/CANNADY/KENNEDY thing
has me all confused.

I had Welthy CANADY - born Feb 22, 1823; died 3 Mar
1898 - wife of Richard Creech EDENFIELD, as a daughter
of Samuel KENNEDY & Sarah "Sally" BROWN. Welthy and
Richard are buried at the Strange Family Cemetery
located off Ivey W. Rountree Road near Swainsboro.

Now, the Edenfield Genealogy site lists different
birth and death dates for "Wealthy" - born Feb 22,
1828; died Nov 4, 1895.

Are we discussing 2 different Weltha/Welthys here? Is
one of them a daughter of Samuel and Sally (Brown)
KENNEDY and the other a daughter of John and Sarah
CANADY? If so, which is which???

Here is what I've got on descendants of John KENNEDY &
Elizabeth JIMMERSON. Additions and/or corrections are
always encouraged!
