Looking for the Kenney family from Virgina that moved to Brooklyn, NY after the civil war. Family busines was floral supply, floral cemetry boxes,
William Kenney (b appx 1824 in Ireland d. 1880 Brooklyn, NY)
married Margaret McCaffery (b. aprx 1824 NY d. 1897 Brooklyn, NY)
They had at least 5 sons who were alive in 1880, Frank, James P., Thomas, Peter and Hugh (b. 1852 in VA died 1916 in Brooklyn, NY).
I am looking for info on the all the sons except Hugh ( I have all his info except town/county of birth). Also need any info on this family in VA. Family rumor says William was in calvary on Confederate side.
Hugh married Sophia Wakefield and had 18 children.
I am looking for info on the other sons.
William and Margaret and all their sons except Frank are buried in a family plot at Holy Cross in Brooklyn NY.
