Pioneer Sketches
Sarah KINNICK, m. John B. SHEEK

(dau. of George and Hannah (GRIMES) KINNICK)
Part of The KINNICK Project

Compiled by William L. (Bill) Smith


This page includes sketches I have compiled from my family history research for my own use. I am posting them on the Internet in the interest of sharing this information with interested parties. If you appear to be directly related, based on the information in the the sketches, or have comments to share with me about these sketches, I would be happy to hear from you. I do not do research for others, nor am I particularly interested in speculative relationships or unrelated surname discussions. There are many other worthy sites for these activities. I hope you enjoy reading some of these interesting stories.
