Marcia Kennedy from Seattle

"Marcia Kennedy, Seattle, My Cousin" is what written on the back of this lovely photo. She has a pretty smile, 1940ish curly blonde hair and Claudette Colbert style eye browses. 

A quick research on Ancestry.com I found a Marcia Kennedy in a 1940 census, born about 1904 in Michigan, married to Fred W. Kennedy living in Seattle Washington with their 3 kids Clyde, Myrtle and Verlin. Also living with them at that time are 3 children Katherine Simpokos, Dorothy Simpokos and William Simpokos. Perhaps they are nieces and nephew of either Marcia or Fred.

I found this photo in an antique store in Michigan. I am not positive I found the correct Marcia in this census record, there were other Marcia Kennedy's listed. But this one makes sense, my finding the photo in Michigan, Marcia is born in Michigan.

If you are looking for Kennedy or Simpoko surnames or if you know someone who is, please forward my blog article to them. I would dearly love for Marcia to be with her family again.

This photo can be found at my Etsy.com store Misplaced Ancestors. Below is a link.
