Kennedy, William P. (16 April 1862 – 19??)
WILLIAM P. KENNEDY, whose place of business is one of much activity and is located on the corner of Jackson and Fifth streets, Wausau, where blacksmithing and horseshoeing is done and carriages and buggies are repaired, has been a resident of Wausau since 1882. He was born in the province of Ontario, Canada, April 16, 1862, and is a son of Peter Kennedy.
William P. Kennedy obtained his education in the schools near his home and then learned the blacksmith trade under his father. He was twenty years old when he came to Wausau and afterward worked for several winters in the woods, after which he opened his first blacksmith shop on Second Street, Wausau. He continued there until he found he needed larger quarters and in 1901 came to his present place. He has been industrious and painstaking and has always rendered good service for value received. Mr. Kennedy has many friends in this city and is a valued member of the order of Eagles. Mr. Kennedy is unmarried.
