    on the 1870 census you have posted,
    John South was the brother of Martha Jane South, who married John Gibson Kennedy

    • Thanks!!! Ben, have you worked on any of Martha’s line any? I know I haven’t posted much about the South line at all, concentrating on getting what I have posted on the Kennedy’s. If my information is correct, there are Bobo’s from VA and Powell’s tied into that line.
