History of Fayette County, Kentucky, edited by William Henry Perrin, Chicago: O. L. Baskin & Co., 1882; New Material Copyright 1979 by the Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., Southern Historical Press, pp. 803-804

MRS. ELIZABETH FISHER, farmer, P.O. Lexington, is the widow of the James Fisher, to whom reference is made in one of the historical chapters of this work as the opener of an extensive and interesting Indian mound on his property near Lexington, and from which many ancient aboriginal relies were sent to the Smithsonian Institute, Washington. Mr. Fisher, who was a highly respected, enterprising and intelligent citizen, a Mason and an Odd Fellow, died in October, 1875, since which time his widow has herself managed, with efficient hired help, her farm of 166 acres, to which is given the name "Smithland." Mrs. Fisher is a native of Bourbon County, but when she was only two years of age, her parents removed to Fayette, where she has since had her permanent residence. Her maiden name was Talbott, and she is a direct descendant of an English-Scotch family of the name who came from Virginia to Kentucky at an early day, her great-grandfather, Samuel Talbott, settling in Clark County, between the Kentucky River and Boone's Creek. He had one son, Nicholas, whose mother died when he was but a child, and several other children by a second wife. Nicholas. Mrs. Fisher's grandfather, was a farmer, also a wheelwright and shoemaker. He represented his county in the Legislature, being in that body in 1821. His wife's name was Aria, daughter of John Kennedy, who had emigrated from Ireland and lived in Virginia during the Revolution. He was taken as a soldier by the draft of "the fifteenth man," and served his time in the ranks. Turning out again to repel an English attack, he was captured by the enemy at Guilford Court House, N. C., on March 5, 1781, and his death, on board a British prison-ship, on June 26, is said to have been from starvation. His daughter subsequently came to Kentucky, where an uncle, after living in the fort at Strode's Station with his wife and family for five years, on account of Indian incursions, had located, in 1785, on the stream now known as Kennedy's Creek. Nicholas and Aria (Kennedy) Talbott had a son called Courtney, born September 3, 1804, in Bourbon County. This lad learned shoemaking with his father, all the shoes, as well as all the furniture used by the family, being made at home. Excepting only four months in school, he was also educated at home by his father, while working at the shoebench or lathe. December 16, 1830, he married Elizabeth Harp, and for several years lived on a farm of his own near where he was born, but, in 1835, moved to Fayette County upon a farm of 200 acres, now owned by George Whitney, and known as "Pine Grove;" afterward bought a small but rich tract on the south side of the farm, composed of part of the Richardson estate; built, of material obtained on the farm and under his own supervision, a brick house, since remodeled by Mr. Whitney ; and brought up a family of four sons and six daughters-the surviving members of a family of thirteen children. He was one of the first volunteers for the Union, but was rejected on account of his age. In the spring of 1863, he moved to Indiana, and lived near Crawfordsville till his death, in his sixty-third year. He was a leading Mason for more than a quarter of a century. By his father's will, he had been made administrator of the estate, and also guardian of a feeble-minded brother, now cared for by his widow. In an active business career of thirty years' duration, he never incurred an obligation he did not meet on or before its maturity. Such was the father of Mrs. Fisher.
Elizabeth married James FISHER.

From: "Bev Harris"
(I am proud to say that Jesse Kennedy was my gg grandfather). Here is the biography of my Washington Kennedy, the son of Jesse in the 1881 edition of the History of Jackson County Missouri, published by the Ramfre Press of Cape Girardeau, MO, p. 937.
Washington Kennedy, farmer and stock raiser, section 28, was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, November 22, 1821. He lived in Bourbon County until 1857, when he moved to Jackson County, Missouri, and located on the farm which he now occupies in Van Buren Township. He was married June 15, 1858, to Sarah Amos, of Jackson County, Missouri, but who was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, May 13, 1842. (Sarah was the daughter of Abraham Amos of Bourbon County, Kentucky and Julia A. [Matheny] Amos of Bourbon Co. Abraham and Julia Amos came to Jackson County, Missouri in 1855 from Bonne County, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky and brought slaves with them. (It looks to me as if my great grandfather, Washington Kennedy, followed Sarah to Missouri. Isn't love grand?!) Eleven children have been born, all of whom are living (in 1881!) at home, and named as follows: Granville Amos (b.Oct. 19, 1859), Jesse Franklin (b. June 28, 1861), Mary Washington (b. April 21, 1863), Julia Waugh (Dec. 24, 1864), Joseph Dorsey (Oct. 28, 1869), John Thomas (Feb. 21, 1869), James Edwin (Jan. 21, 1871), Martha Clay (Dec. 20, 1872), Lula Bell (Dec. 14, 1874), Edna Preston (March 5, 1877), and Ida Green (May 7, 1880). There has never been a death in this family, and all are in excellent health. Mr. Kennedy spares no pains to give his children good educations. His son, Jesse F. is a member of the William Jewell College in Clay County, and his daughter, Mary, is a member of the Female Seminary, at Independence. (Her son, John Fisher, was president of the Board of Regents for all of the colleges in Oklahoma for many years before he died.) Mr. Kennedy had but little means when he started in life in Missouri, and what he had accumulated when the Civil War broke out, was all either confiscated or destroyed, and at the close of the War he had to begin life almost anew. But he now has a very fine farm of 240 acres, and well stocked with the fine stock breeding. During the War he was terribly persecuted by both parties; his life was threatened, and even attempts were made to shoot him, yet he has survived all these hardships, and has again built up a beautiful home, where he and his family live quiet and peaceful lives, honored and respected by all with whom they are acquainted. (My last surviving aunt told me last year that the Washington Kennedy family was considered to be one of the aristocratic families of Jackson County during the last half of the 19th century--whatever she meant by that statement. This Washington Kennedy died on June 17, 1899. He and Sarah are buried in the Pleasant Hill, Cass Co., MO Cemetery. I have always thought that the "brains" in my family came largely from my line of Kennedys--there were lawyers, dentists, professors, school administrators, teachers, engineers, and professionals in many fields.)

Enough for now. Will be in touch with much more.
