Mike: I have a David Woods Kennedy born in Kilclief, County Down, Ireland (a few miles from Killyleagh) whose parents are believed to be William Kennedy and Mary Woods. DWK was born about 1818, later than the David Kennedy you are seeking, but is it possible he and William Kennedy were brothers or in some other way related?

Relationship is possible but I have no proof/hint/lead to verify that possibility.

In my David's family there is a William among his sons. His wife is supposedly from Downpatrick, which is closer to Kilclief than Killyleagh,
My David is rumored to have been born in Scotland. Then he came to county Down (possibly via Kilclief then Downpartick then Killyleagh ??? ) Who knows.
I am trying to build a database of Kennedys from County Down. If you have any names, dates, locations events or relationships, I would appreciate the information to add to the database.

Hi Mike:

I have made some progress since my last message. I have learned the parents of our David Woods Kennedy are William Kennedy and Mary (Woods) Kennedy. Presbyterians who were in County Down, at Kilclief, in the early 1800s. Let me know if this fits with your research.
