Susan William Lee Martin Kennedy, that is. I have spent the afternoon browsing the 1860 Federal Census for Sumter County, Alabama, which I believe is where the James H Martin family was living at the time Susan and Dr Nathan B Kennedy met, and later where they married in 1862. Before a couple of months ago, this task was virtually impossible. Then came DSL…aaah, modern technology!
Anyway, I have gone through all of Gainesville (7 images), all of the Northern Division (40 images), all of Township 22 Range 2 West (only 4 images) and 60 of 103 images of the Southern Dvision.
And now, before my eyes pop out of my head, I’m going to get away from this computer for a bit and… clean my desk. I bought a new, very-much-needed bookcase today, so it’s time to dig out my desk!
