Have had a look but the only one that is possible is a David Kennedy born 16/05/1806 but it only gives the fathers name David Kennedy.

Paila, William 8 months (this was a transcription and it could not be read so the last name is probably wrong)

Hi there,
I am at the same point of tracing as you are.David Kennedy who married Mary Rodger is as far back on the Kennedys as I can get so far.This David Kennedy was my gggg grandfather!!I wonder if you are related to a Jenny McIlroy? I have an old photo of her taken with my late mother and her siblings at Mount Stuart in Rothesay. For your ref I am now tracing Mary Rodger who died 2/12/1860 at Bridgeton Glasgow.Buried ao Southern Necropolis.

Hi,

Just seen your reply,thanks!David Kennedy and Mary Rodgers were my gggg grandparents!!!
If I find any info further I will let you know.
Do you know the Mcilroy side of the family? My father was Philip William Mcilroy born Rothesay Isle of Bute.

I had an aunty called Jenny,Kate,Peggy,Issabelle Mcilroy do you think they maybe the same?If so I would love a copy of the picture you mentioned.
