James KENNEDY and Elizabeth GOODALL


 August 22, 2002:

Hello Al
Now here's an early pioneer, James Kennedy born 1825 in ONTARIO!!!!!! 
Therefore, Mom and Dad would have been here a lot earlier. I going to dig a 
bit more for the parents. Anyways, I had a picture of a tombstone from St 
Patricks Cemetery and I knew It would come into effect some day. It's 
finally nice to see a connection with the Goodall's, Kennedy and Quinlan's. 
Take care for now
Your buddy Taylor
