Grandpa's actual Obituary is in The Democrat, a Brown Co IN Newspaper, dated 17 May 1928.

Note: Photographer and newspaperman Frank Michael Hohenberger (1876-1963) spent 47 years recording the life, customs and scenes in Brown Co IN. My family is grateful for his pictures of Grandpa Kennedy, his children and their homes.

James is my paternal Gr-Grandfather. So many thanks to Rhonda for the tombstone picture.
