1910 Census~Samuel Robert Kennedy~Tishomingo County, MS

Below is the information from the 1910 Census of Samuel Robert Kennedy.  These records are transcribed exactly as they were recorded on the census.  Many times the people who went from house to house taking the census could barely read and write, spelling names to the best of their ability,  while others among them were very literate and had beautiful handwritings as they correctly spelled the names of the people they were enumerating. Thus, in this census, Kennedy, spelled as we know it today, was spelled Kenady.  The enumerator for this particular page of the census was John Newhardt.

  Note: Given names without surnames listed in the parenthesis of the neighbors are the same as the first surname that is head of the household.
