Shawn Kennedy, October 21, 2002:

My uncle Jim, James G. Kennedy, Sr. was the last of the generation. When I was getting high security clearance, my mom lied about her age and the FBI came to find out why, she slammed the door on them. My father went to Holly Grove, Roscommon in the 1970s but they didnt find anyone there from the family. When I was younger, the Kennedys and the O'Malleys did a lot together, I went to a wedding in St. Ignatius in New York. It was Ann Henning's daughter getting married. We are related to the Brennans and the Bishops and one of the Brennans was in the FBI. They lived in Cincinnati, a lot of them were fireman. Emil Brennan's name was mentioned to me at a funeral, and I called him and he sent me some documents. My mom always lied about her age and when she died we put the same year as my dad down on her grave, but she was a year older.
