My great-grandmother, Louisa Ann Goodpasture (1863-1936) was the daugher of Abram
and Zannah Richardson Goodpasture. She married James Oliver Kennedy, son of Hezekiah and Sarah Ann
Rexroat Kennedy. I'm told my great-grandmother "Lou" was a fabulous cook. She raised prize
chickens and sold hatching eggs and chicks through the "Prairie Farmer" magazine. Lou
and Oliver lived their entire married life on the small farm in Crackers Bend (about 12 miles NW of
Jacksonville and east of Concord). They were the parents of 2 children: Charles Burven Kennedy (1889-1911)
and Bertha Roena Kennedy (1899-1983). They are both buried in Arcadia Cemetery.
