KENNETH KENNEDY, chief clerk of the Three R group of mines at Patagonia, is a native of Alabama, and was born in Blount County, February 4, 1878. His father, Matthew Gleason Kennedy, was a native of Tipperary, Ireland, and his mother, Sarah Caroline Robinson Kennedy, was a native of Georgia. Mr. Kennedy attended the public schools and was graduated from the high school at his home, and later attended but did not complete the course of the University of Alabama. He then entered the newspaper field, his first work having been as reporter on several Alabama newspapers. However, he soon became engaged in railroad work in a clerical capacity from which he advanced to the position of private secretary to the general manager of the Rock Island R. R., with which company he remained for a period of four years. He subsequently devoted several years to construction work in Mexico and at various points in Central and South America. On his return to the United States he accepted a position as cashier for the Dayton Lumber Company, Dayton, Texas, and which he resigned after two years to accept a position with the Chino Copper Company, Hurley, N.

On coming to Arizona Mr. Kennedy located in Clifton, where he entered the service of the Arizona Copper Company, Ltd., but in June, 1912, he removed to Patagonia to accept his present position with the Three R Mines.
