John F Kennedy, MD (10 Jun 1826- 10 Sep 1867) was my third great-granduncle, the oldest of three physician-sons (John, Sydney and Nathan) of John and Harriett Kennedy of Sumter County, Alabama. All three served as surgeons with the Confederacy during the Civil War. Afterwards, Dr Kennedy settled in Lauderdale, Mississippi, where he may have committed suicide in 1867. He is buried at Lauderdale Cemetery.

  1. What a wonderful treasure to have. How sad he died and under such unfortunate conditions.
