Kennedys of Tennessee-->Illinois-->Kansas

Looking for a line of Kennedys that has been eluding me!

John S. Kennedy born in 1809 or 1829 in Tennessee married Elizabeth Spears who was born in Ohio, probably around 1938. My great grandfather was their son William Washington Kennedy who was born around 1860 in Illinois. (other children of John and Elizabeth: Thomas, Ada, Carrie, Samuel, Florence). On 8 Feb 1883 in Franklin, KS Wm married Sarah Jane Dodson who died in Coffey, Kansas. They had my grandmother Jennie Kennedy in Coffey, KS who lived from 1893-1964. (Other siblings of Jennie were Ora, Roy, Marie, Ethel/Ethyl, Myrtle, and Letha). William and daughter Jennie (and probably at least some siblings) also died in Coffey County, KS.

Does anyone have more information on this line of Kennedys? I can't get any further back than John.

I have a photo of William and Sarah Jane's family that I would be happy to share, as well as some other info.
