My great-grandmother was Margaret Kennedy born about the early 1830s at Red River and died about 1873 at Fort Walsh, she married Alexander Gaddy in 1855 and they had several children including my grandmother Barbara Ellen (1869-1958). I'm trying to find out her parents and they may be Sally Kennedy and 'an Indian man' according to Anglican baptismal records of July 9, 1835 where Sally was baptized "Adult Native; Indian Settlement on Red River" along with 5 of her children - James, Jane, Margaret, Peter and Thomas. I think they might somehow be related to the Chief Factor Alexander Kennedy family but I don't know how. Does anyone know anything about the family connections?
