McCLAIN CEMETERY, (near Maury line) LEWIS COUNTY TENNESSEE
KENNEDY, James William, 12 Oct 1857 - 8 Jun 1949, son of Weakley Gordon and Sarah Ann Stockard. Jim Kennedy was first married Sarah Ellen Pickard on 22 Sept. 1885. She died November 17, 1886 and is probably buried here in an unmarked grave. Jim's second wife was Nancy Elizabeth Hunt. His father, Weakley, was a Civil War soldier and died in St. Louis, Missouri as a prisoner of the Union Army. He is buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Jim's mother, Sarah Ann, married three more times after Weakley's death. She married James N. Pugh, Wesley Scribner, and finally, Caleb S. Williams. She is buried at McClain Cemetery in an unmarked grave, just below Jim's grave, beside her twin grandsons, Otto and Otis Kennedy. Update: A new memorial was added recently to celebrate the life of Sarah Ann Stockard by her descendents. [2/5/2005, Mary Bob Richardson, updated by WA] Photo & Information by Rick Gray 1/11/03.
