The Moline Daily Dispatch Monday Evening April 23, 1900:
Mrs. Sampson Kennedy, in her 53d year, died at the city hospital early Sunday morning, after a surgical operation had been performed Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Kennedy's strength did not prove sufficient to withstand the shock.
Mrs. Kennedy had lived many years in Moline, and had come to be known and respected as a most exemplary and lovable woman. Her death will be sincerely mourned by all who knew her.
Adaline Whiting the oldest of three children, was born in Marquette County, Wisconsin, July 21, 1847. When about 7 years old her father, a prosperous pioneer farmer, was killed by a stroke of lightning. Her mother soon after disposed of the farm and returned to her former home at Keokuk, Iowa, and later moved to Monmouth, Ill., where Miss Adaline grew up to womanhood. November 6, 1866, she was married to Mr. Sampson Kennedy. After several years spent in Monmouth and Chicago, Mr. Kennedy came to Moline in 1871, and here, with the exception of five years spent in Davenport, the family has since made its home. Six children were born of the union, the first dying at birth. The others, Robert B., Adaline, Philip S., Alice and Sam W., survive with their father to mourn the loss of a loving and self-sacrificing mother and companion.
Her mother, Mrs. W.N. Cook, Ocean View, Cal.: her sister, Mrs. Chas. Carr, New Monterey, Cal., and her brother Julian also remain to sorrow for her death.
The funeral takes place tomorrow forenoon at 10:30 from the residence, 421 Eleventh street, the Rev. W.W. Willard officiating.
