Children of William and Sarah Kinnick:
2. Milly Kinnick (b. abt 1763) - She is mentioned in her father's will. Nothing else is known of her.
4. Richard Kinnick (b. abt 1767) - he is mentioned in his father's will. Nothing more is known of him. (Discussed in MSG article)
1. Per Maryland Court Record of 1733, he would be 15 in April 1734. Therefore, born April 1719. Presumably born at Poplar Hill or nearby Brightwell plantation, in Prince George's Co, MD.
2. Believed to be the same person as reported as a Private in the Continental Soldiers of the South, 1732-1741, Gooch's American Regiment, pp. 238-239.
3. Assumed to be the same William Kinnick who served as Sergeant/Sergeant Major in War of the Revolution
Feb 2002 - found a DAR application that has her surname as Fergerson, b. Ireland. No idea of source. Confirmation sought.
Based on considerable research and analysis, but without solid proof, your Compiler believes there is a high probability that Ann, the wife of John Kinnick (Son of Jasper), and Ann, the daughter of William Kinnick, brother of Jasper, are one and the same person. This means, among other things, that all the persons listed to the left, and their siblings not listed, are all grandchildren of William Kinnick, of Revolutionary War service, as Mrs. Waggener believed in her 1953 book, but for a different reason! Go to John and Ann family.
It is believed that about the time of her father's death in 1785, Elizabeth was or became a caregiver in a nearby Catholic family home. It is further believed that she migrated with this family in about 1790 to Kentucky, where she appears (as Elizabeth Kimmick) in 1792, in Nelson Co, marrying Basil Speake. Go to Basil and Elizabeth family.
From subsequent family records we know that John Kinnick's wife was named Mary. We even have a picture, it seems. The best evidence to date is that it was Mary Isaacs that John Kinnick married. This, as fact, continues as a serious subject of confirmatory research.
