Alice Rose Ella Kennedy and sister Nora Kennedy from Ohio

according to family legend, Alice and Nora are distant relations to JFK's clan. Alice was born abt 1870-72, and Nora was born about 1866-1870, both in Ohio. Their immediate family, according to my grandmother, was in the Kenton, Ohio area. I'm looking for any help in finding out more on their immediate family. I have no clue to parents names,births or deaths, but both were born in Ireland. There were a couple of brothers, but, again, no names or dates. Alice and Nora both had nursing education somewhere on the East coast. Alice worked as a nurse in Tonapah, Neveda, a mining town, in the early 1900's and married James Eagan in 1908. They moved back to his family in Wisconsin soon after. Nora never married. She spent some time in Japan, (no kind of time frame for it tho) then spent over 30 years as a housekeeper for a Catholic house (church? seminary? monastery?) in Sonamo, California. In the early to mid 1930's they let her go, and she moved in with sister Alice and family in Wisconsin. Both Alice and Nora died in the 1950's in the Marcellon/Portage area of Wisconsin. So....if anyone might have some info they would like to share, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
