Dear Hifly

It's Christine actually !!  Paul's the husband hence part of the email address.

I don't know anything really as I am quite new to all this but I was claiming this same family as I do know that my great grandad (John Kennedy's ) Dad was also called John as I sent off for the wedding certificate. 

There are a lot of Kennedys that came from Carlisle though.

I had already found the info which Tati had put in his message to you .  What I can't understand is that I have previously found Mary (Kennedy? Jackson?) either on her own with children, (widowed ?) then married to someone called Jackson and then later on married to another man - James Magee.  I don't know her first husband's name (John's Dad) which I am interested in.  Or who her son John (born C1854) married and the mother of John (born 1878) (my Great Grandad).   

I do intend going to Carlisle Records Office before winter sets in to try and find out as I want to be able to tell my Dad all about his ancestors!  He can't remember much about the family - he is 78 now.  His Dad and Grandad worked on the railways and my Dad, his brother (another  JOhn) and his parents all came down to live here in  Manchester when Dad was only a little boy.

Unless you know exact dates of births etc you can be following the wrong family, can't you?

Thanks again.

I think this family might be mine.  Do you know if your John Kennedy had a son called John (born 1878 ish)  in Caldewgate, Carlisle, and was married to a Martha Elliott? - These my Dad's grandparents and I have a copy of their wedding certificate.  Are these in your tree?  If so, do you know who was John's wife?

Thank you.
