My great great grandparents, Olive Ingalls Carter and Pulaski Carter

Amelia Maria Carter Kennedy, daughter of the couple pictured above, researched the genealogies of her family and that of her husband, William DeWitt Kennedy. I inherited most of her notes, documentation, correspondence, society applications and certificates, and some of the books that she used for her research. I have since purchased many others. The files of Amelia Maria [I always heard it pronounced Ma-ri'-ya with a long i] Carter Kennedy revealed that she wrote the biographies for her father and husband that have been published in several books. These pages are designed to share some of this unique information, along with material acquired from other sources over the years.
