KINSEY posted by Steve Kinsey on Tuesday, July 5, 2005
Hello; Steve Kinsey here in Toledo. I've been to Tiffin twice trying to locate information about my gg and ggg grandfathers; Joseph Kinsey and Joseph Kinsey Jr. They were both original land owners in Seneca County; ca.1835 and 1848. Jr died in 1869 and Sr died in 1878, as did his wife Maria Kinsey (DAR). I have not found out what happened to the wife of Jr., Rebecca Kinsey. She appeared in the 1880 census with her son Hiram Kinsey, in Seneca County, but no sign of her after. I also cannot find any location info about JR's death, just the date. We located the grave site of Sr and Maria and took some very nice pictures. Info I have seen said they were Pa Dutch; I believe from Bucks County, Pa. We were at the library and court house in Tiffin. Where else do we need to search to find some lead to where they originated from in Pa? We would like to plan a visit to Pa this fall, but need to narrow down our search. Any leads or contacts would be most appreciated. thank you kindly; Steve
