Oral Family history has it that 4 brothers, James, Martin, Charles, Garnett Kennedy, who came over from Scotland sometime before 1775 to avoid persecution and prosecution from having taken part some kind of Irish Rebellion. One James Kennedy married an Elizabeth Martin Grayson County, VA 1823. This couple had a son name Theodore Kennedy. I do not believe this James Kennedy was one of the four brothers because this James Kennedy was born 1795 New York. Perhaps his father or grandfather was one of the four brothers.
