Jonathan Kennedy Obituary

Jonathan Kennedy

Jonathan Kennedy, a farmer residing near Mt. Morris, who had been in his usual health, arose from his bed Saturday morning, January 29, 1916, and was attending to the usual work going over to feed some stock in a field in full view of the house but when he did not return in the usual time his wife stepped out to look for him and saw him lying on the ground. She gave the alarm and ran to him but a life was extinct, apoplexy had done its fatal work. Mr. Kennedy was born January 12, 1856, and was consequently 60 years and 17 days old. A protracted meeting was in progress at the Mt. Morris M. E. church and on the evening immediately preceding his death, he was converted. Mr. Kennedy was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kennedy, late of Perry township, and was a first cousin of Ex-county Treasurer G. W. Kennedy. He was a good citizen, and an honest, industrious man. He was united in marriage with Miss Martha Lemley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Asberry Lemley, deceased. Three children were born to this union, Frank Kennedy, at home, and Mrs. Lydia Price, wife of John Price, who reside on Dunkard Creek near to Core's Mills, and a son who died in infancy. Besides the widow and these children, there remain the following brothers and sisters: David Kennedy, Washington Kennedy, and Mrs. L. C. Callihan, of Mt. Morris; Mr. W. O. Fox, of near Garards Fort; Patrick Kennedy and Miss Mary Kennedy, of Amity, and Spice Kennedy, of Losantsville, Indiana. Rev. Potter, of the Mt. Morris M. E. church, conducted the funeral. Interment in Cedar Grove cemetery at Mt. Morris.

Democrat Messenger, February 4, 1916 (Greene County, PA)
