his son as William Ansel Kinney Jr./II. To date, I have found no documentation
for the middle name of William [Sr.].
The full name of his first son, William Ansel Kinney, is

Assuming the genealogies are correct, this Y-DNA match of a descendant of John of Milton, MA, to descendants of Henry of Salem, MA, indicates that both John and Henry share a common ancestor. The Y-DNA match can not tell us who he was or when he lived, but it does tell us that direct line male descendants of Henry and John share an unknown Kinney male ancestor. Based on the information known to me at this time, and assuming all the genealogies presented are correct, it appears that John of Milton is NOT a direct descendant of Henry of Salem. Hence, there is an earlier ancestor shared by the two.
