Perhaps to much time has passed... I am interested in the book mentioned, The Pitcher Family of Milton, Ma.
I am tracking my 9th great grandfather Andrew Kennedy Jr who was adopted by a John Pitcher sometime in the 1700s. The following is from the History of Milton.
" Andrew Kennedy, Jr., son of Capt. Andrew Kennedy, of
the Navy, was the adopted son of John Pitcher. He kept
tavern in Milton during the Revolutionary war. He and four of his sons were at the battle of Lexington. He married Amy Wentworth, 175o. The Kennedy place was owned in the first years of the town by John Pitcher ; a cellar, on the south side of the street in the fields, indicates the position of his slaves' quarters."
Any help? So far this is the only thing I have linking me to Andrew's birth or adoptive fathers.
