Kennedy Murray
reunion of descendants in Tasmania 2022

This page is all about the reunion which I was not able to attend but, thanks to Cameron Richards, I have all the information for this page. The event was an opportunity to share key stories, existing information, and new developments from many active family historians and genealogists.

More than 50 people attended the gathering which showcased a plethora of interesting information and stories. Cameron wrote of the extended family of Kennedy Murray with 58 grandchildren - plus Kennedy Murray the second's siblings via Ann White's second family of another 37 nephews and nieces who were all based in Evandale in the 1830's.
