2009-www.gausschildren.org WTGC pg96d-Mary K married W M Long, in face of strong opposition from her family - William Long & Mary Kennedy were cousins - married near Belfast, Ireland - it was a love match - the Kennedys a family of some importance strongly opposed the marriage - the children of William Long and Mary Kennedy: Andrew Long, Kennedy Long, Robert Long, Henry Long (11 children in all); their son, Colonel Kennedy Long, married his cousin, Elizabeth, the daughter of Andrew Kennedy. Apparently Kennedy Long was headed towards being an Episcopal minister-not wishing to take order however, he (with his mother's connivence) ran away from home & came to this country to seek his fortune - in which he seems to have met with marked success. He went first to his uncle Andrew Kennedy in Philadelphia-but later after his marriage with his cousin Elizabeth Kennedy he lived in Baltimore where he established and conducted a successful business in the India & China trade
