Kennedy and Cranston families

I have just uploaded to my website entitled A Little Bit of Irish [display] an initial version of the chapter concerning the Kennedy and Cranston families.

In starting this chapter, I have been largely motivated by a recent unexpected encounter with a Queensland cousin whose maiden name was Frances Kennedy (married name, Dawn Mohr).

We now know the name of the Kennedys' native village in Ulster: Brookeborough. We also know that at least two of the three brothers from Fermanagh arrived in South Australia. There, in the town of Yankalilla, William Kennedy married a Scottish girl, Catherine McMaster. For the moment, I don't know what this lass was doing down in South Australia, because most of her clan were settled up in the Glen Innes region of NSW. In any case, that is the area to which William and Catherine finally found their way, settling first in the McMaster territory of Wellingrove, then in nearby Emmaville.

I now intend to get stuck into the Cranston side of my story.

  3. The initial cost for these LED bulbs is high but they will
    pay back your investment within a few months. The bulbs can
    be bought from any electrical store and even on the
    Internet. Where By By turf carp communities are perhaps taken all
    the way through selling such as a biocontrol needed for noxious pernicious weeds, they should be taken back within the water in and additionally unscathed.
