Is anyone researching the HUGGINS & KENNEDY lines in County Tyrone?

Our line descends from Rev Thomas KENNEDY (1625-1695), whose family were in Ayrshire, Scotland. Thomas was educated at Glasgow 1637; installed at Donaghmore Presbyterian (Carland), Co Tyrone, 1646 & received the tithes; dep for non-conformity, 1661; continued to preach in a log house and was imprisoned in Dungannon for doing so, for some years; officiated in the troubles, 1689; adm Whithorn, Wigtownshire 1689; Member of Gen Assembly (Scot.) 1690, 1692; took charge of Kirkmaiden, Ayrshire, 1693-5; ins Tullylish, 1694. Chaplain to Munro’s Army. Married the daughter of Capt. O’Brien of Bawn.

The children of Rev Thomas KENNEDY and Miss O'BRIEN included:
- Rev. Thomas KENNEDY (-1746)
- Rev. John KENNEDY (1684-1761)
- Robert KENNEDY
- William KENNEDY (1695-1777)

Our line descends from Rev. John KENNEDY (1684-1761). John was educated at Glasgow 1698; lic Tyrone Presbyterian 1707; ordained at Benburb 13 July 1714; and Modr Gen Syn 1749.

We do not know who John's wife was, but their children included:
- Daughter, forename unknown
- Lettice KENNEDY (-1796)
- Rev. William KENNEDY (ca.1724-1801)

Our line descends from Lettice (or, Letitia) KENNEDY, who married John HUGGINS of Glenarb townland near the town of Caledon, County Tyrone, Ireland.

I would be interested in hearing from readers who are related to any of the persons mentioned above.
