1.  Many years ago, a well know Kennedy Family researcher in Kentucky, Ms Lee Biles advanced the theory that Dr. Joseph Kennedy, John Kennedy and James Kennedy all men born around 1730-35 and found living in the vicinity of Mecklenburg County, NC during the Revolutionary War were all brothers.  This theory is enhanced by the fact that James and John both later relocated to central Kentucky ending up in what is now Garrard County.  Their descendents intermarried.  One son of John named Joseph made an avidavit during his lifetime that he served in the Revolutionary War as a proxy for his old Uncle.  This is probably the strongest evidence of a link between John and Dr. Joseph.  Ms Biles has been deceased for some while now.  I am looking for evidence to prove or disprove her theory.
