From FMP I can find an Isabella Kennedy who died 1851 Kelloe - it says she was aged 69 (so born about 1782) and lived at Cassop Hill.
I can't find anything else out about her!
She my be connected to my Kennedy family, from Ireland, who were living around Kelloe a few years earlier, but then again, she may not.
Before getting hold of her death certificate (which may not be that helpful) I wondered if anyone could find anything I'd missed?

Thanks Trace - not sure how I missed that?! Must have allowed an insufficient age range.

Seems like her maiden name was Swinburne and had a child with William Kennedy (Mary Ann, 1827) and she is staying with her daughter's family in 1851. No record of her marriage that I can see, but she's using the father's surname.

Doesn't look like my lot. Thanks again!
