KENNEDY, Grace, a Scottish authoress, born in Ayrshire in 1782, died Feb. 28, 1825. She passed the greater part of her life in Edinburgh, and subsequent to 1811 was an industrious writer of works of fiction of a moral and religious character, which were greatly esteemed at home and abroad. Among the most successful were “Decision,” “Father Clement,” “Anna Ross,” “Dunallan,” “Jessie Allan,” &c., nearly all of which have been translated into the French and other languages. Her works were all published under an assumed name.
