Re: African American Cannady's
In Response To: African American Cannady's ()
Ironically, my great-grandfather was named Albert Kennedy, born about 1853 in Mississippi. His mother, Lucy, had a brother named Ben Canady, who had a son named Archie Canady. Lucy had come from Alabama. This was consistently reported in the census records. Although for some reason, an elderly relative claims that Lucy and her people had come from North Carolina. Not sure why he believes that because everything I've found (census records, info on the Kennedy enslavers, etc.) points back to Monroe County, Alabama. Hmmm......
