Murdo (born 1865) was a son of Roderick Kennedy and Jessie Macmillan, 2 Calbost. He married Ann Mackenzie, 26 Crossbost. Murdo and Ann settled at 14 Calbost and they had nine children.
Murdo was a regular soldier, having served 17 years in the Seaforth Highlanders. He served in India, South Africa and Egypt and he held two medals with seven clasps. When his son Roderick was killed early in the First World War he volunteered twice for active service but because of his age (about 50 years) he was not accepted.
