Subject: [NIR-DOWN] lookup request -David Dobson books
Date: Sun, 13 Jan 2008 14:16:49 -0500


Is there anyone willing to do some lookups from the books by David Dobson on the Scots-Irish around the period 1725-1825.
Apparently he wrote three to five books on the Scot-Irish, with at least three dealing with this period of time.
I am looking for information on the Kennedy surname in County Down, especially the area in and near the town of Killyleagh or the Barony of Dufferin and the whole area known as East Down.
What area of Scotland did these Kennedys originally come from?
Did these Kennedys belong to any particular branch of the Scottish Kennedys?
Are any of them mentioned as coming from Glasgow?
Are there any family trees or genealogies available that tie these County Down Kennedy's with Scottish Kennedy's?
Are any of these books online?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
