Note N1002 Index
His and his wife's approximate years of birth come from the 1841 census.
Note N1003 Index
In his WWI draft registration, he gives his birth date as July 16, 1886. He was not then married. He had the same employer that year as he did when he registered for WWII.
His WWII draft registration shows Bertha Kennedy as his next of kin, and his birth as July 16, 1886. She applied for a gravestone marker in September 1952, using the same birthdate. In the 1940 census, his wife is Bertha. Do I have the right man? The birth registration I have for my George September 27, 1888, but in the 1900 census for Nevin and Sarah, he is shown as born in July 1866, so I beleive that I have the right George Kennedy.
Note N1004 Index
His birth date comes from the Social Security Death Index, and his WWI and WWII draft registration cards. The info re his wife and daughter comes from the 1930 census. His WWII draft registration list Isabell I. Kennedy as his wife. They lived at 45 Sherman Avenue, East Newark on date of the registration which I am guessing was in 1945. In the 1920 census, he was shown as a laundry chauffeur and his wife was a laundry clerk. In the 1940 census, he is still working in the laundry business, although I cannot make out what he does. His wife was a sales lady in a dry cleaner's. Claire is still living with them, which is only natural as she is only 15 years old.
Note N1005 Index
It is possible that she did not marry. There was a Claire E. Kennedy born February 15, 1925 who died in May 1978 in Belmar, Monmouth, New Jersey. That came from the SSDI.
Note N1006 Index
In the 1910 census, she appears to be Marion and not Maisie.
Note N1007 Index
She was noted as a widow in the 1930 census. She was also noted as coming to the USA in 1890 and was the manager of a coal company. But in 1920, it said that she came to the US in 1882. Her 45 year old brother, James Ross, was living with them in 1920 and the date for his arrival in the US was also 1882.

Note N1009 Index
I originally had his wife's name as Mina. Here is what Helen Dunn said about that:
I did not come across a marriage for Cecil in LDS but according to Christine's records he married Elizabeth Jane Thompson in Belfast 3rd quarter of 1933 - her Mum said she thought his wife was named Mina.
However, Christine found his will administered by Elizabeth Jane in December 1958.
Note N1010 Index
Here is what Helen Dunn had to say in February 2007:
According to Christine, Cecil M Allely born 1934 (cousin of her dad) was the son of Cecil born 1905. She thinks the mothers name was Mina - I have not found the marriage.
