I have a lot of information about the William Kennedy family who settled in Missoula in 1871. William's son, Lynn, moved to Colorado and was one of my great-uncles. He compiled an extensive and fascinating genealogy which I'd love to get into the hands of anyone who is directly descended from this line. One of the obituaries I have says that William built the original Missoula Hotel in 1889 and later operated the Kennedy Hotel, then called the Priess Hotel. Lynn's brothers were Louis and Hugh, but they only call his mother "Mrs. William Kennedy."
