    My 3 times great grandfather John Kennedy fought at the Battle of Waterloo under the command of the Duke of Wellington. Most likely he fought with a Scottish Regiment. After the War, he served a one of the guards guarding Napoleon. He returned to Scotland and married a woman named Elizabeth. Later they immigrated to Ontario Canada where they had 9 children. His son John Kennedy immigrated to New York State and moved to Illinois where he eventually enlisted in the 95th Illinois regiment and served during the US Civil War.
