This surely must be the William Anderson and wife "Helen" that is mentioned in the letter from Hazel Anderson to James C. Anderson dated July 31, 1976. The "Helen" that is a sister to Catherine Kennedy. note by James C. Anderson..

AND.....GEORGE KENNEDY, AGE 7, RESIDENCE IN COBURG, (Ontario)
_______________________________________________________
note by James C. Anderson... this entry for George Kennedy is most interesting as it ties Ellen Anderson to the Kennedy family as noted by the letter from Hazel Anderson to James C. Anderson dated July 31, 1976.. It appears that young George Kennedy , age 7, was visiting the Andersons during the census taking. I must check out the census for Cobourg, Ontario for 1861.. it should be interesting..jca
Perhaps young George Kennedy is a grandson of the missing brother John Kennedy.
________________________________________________________
Here is the 1861 census record for young George Kennedy in Cobourg, Ontario.

1861 census, Cobourg, Ontario, National Archives of Canada, film # C1054, page 75
Julia Kennedy, b. England, religion WM, age 40, widow
Thomas Kennedy, b. upper Canada, age 12, absent at census
(note: it may be the turn for Thomas Kennedy to visit William and Ellen Anderson at the farm in the country... jca)
George Kennedy, b. upper Canada, age 8
Mary E. Kennedy, b. upper Canada, age 10
John Kennedy, b. upper Canada, age 6
on 1/4 acre lot, frame house
________________________________________________________
note: the George Kennedy mentioned on the Cobourg census of 1861(film C1054, page 75, age 8) is for sure the same George Kennedy also picked up on the S. Monaghan census also of 1861 (film C-1055, page 21, age 7) who happened to be visiting William Anderson and wife Ellen who I suspect is his great aunt. quote : "George Kennedy, age 7 , residence Cobourg". It is a pity that mother Julia is a widow. It will make it harder to trace back one more Kennedy generation to where I suspect we will find a John Kennedy , the missing brother to Catherine and Ellen or "Helen" Kennedy. jca
A search of the census records for Cobourg for 1861 found only a very few Kennedy's in the quite sizable town. No other Kennedy match was even interesting. jca . the Cobourg records for 1871 are missing so they are of no help.
________________________________________________________
Is it possible that this William Anderson is related to Alexander Anderson. They certainly appear to be married to the Kennedy sisters, Ellen and Catherine. Now to find the missing brother John Kennedy mentioned in the letter from Miss Hazel Anderson in 1976. (note by JCA)
