Subject: [KENDRICK-L] William KENDRICK family - Louisville, KY
Date: Mon, 10 Apr 2000 11:31:16 EDT
I found these tidbits in the Filson Club Guide [on-line] to their Special
Collections. The number refers to the collection itself, and these are
groups of photographs. These descriptions give detailed family histories.
Can anyone connect this William KENDRICK to any of the other KY KENDRICKS?
If anyone needs more info about the Filson Club, let me know, or go to:

This collection contains photographs and candid snapshots of Kendrick,
Trawick, Rivers, and Keller family members. William Kendrick (1810-1880) was
the founder of a jewelry and silverware business in Louisville in 1831. The
firm, later known as William Kendrick & Son Jewelers, was in business until
1966 when it merged with Gray & Merkeley Jewelers. William Kendrick married
Maria Schwing in 1832. One of their sons, William Carnes Kendrick (1852-1938)
married Lizzie Rivers in 1877. A daughter of William and Lizzie Kendrick,
Emma Penton Kendrick, married Dr. John David Trawick. Their children were
Elizabeth Kendrick Trawick (Mrs. William K. Keller), Arch K. Trawick, and Dr.
John D. Trawick, Jr. Included in the collection are four albums - one from
Mr. & Mrs. William C. Kendrick, an album from the family of Rev. R. H.
Rivers, and two albums containing mostly Trawick family photographs. There
are also tintypes, an ambrotype of Mattie Rivers Buford, and two unidentified
daguerreotypes. Photographers represented include Edward Klauber, Webster &
Bro., Frank Wybrant, and Stuber, all of Louisville. Related collections are

Downing of Louisville, Ky. Most photographs are of young women; many are
identified and dated 1876; and most were taken by Frank Wybrant, Louisville

Louisville Girls High School. Downing later married George Penton Kendrick

of the Kendrick jewelry and silverware firm. Family photographs include
George Penton Kendrick, William Kendrick, George Hurst Kendrick, Amelia M.
