July 2007 -- I just came across the Kennedy/Flood bible entries I placed in 2004.  I see over a thousand people have been on that page of the site.  I don't know if my e-mail address can be changed.  It is now  I'd be anxious to see if anyone would contact me about this family.  Still looking for a family member to pass the bible on to.
