Biography William Kennedy
William H. Kennedy was born in New Hampshire and worked as a portrait painter in New Bedford, Massachusetts; Ledyard, Connecticut; and Berwick, Maine from 1845 through 1847. He moved to Maryland in 1849 or 1850, living at various locations in Baltimore with his wife and three children until 1869.
