KENNEY/KENNY/KINNE/KINNEY/KINNY

 

 

Isaac Kinney (Jr) was the father of Susan Kinney, the wife of John R. Harrod. Isaac Kinney was most likely born on or near the DelMarVa Peninsula. The earliest reference to a Kinney in the area is 1666 - although it is unknown if this Kinney is an ancestor to our clan. According to regional records, Isaac and Amelia (Taylor) Kinney and a number of his wife Amelias brothers sold their land and moved from Somerset Co MD (an area just west of present day Ocean City MD) to Bracken Co KY between 1800 and 1810. It was in approximately 1805 that Susan Kinney, wife of John R. Harrod, was born to Isaac Kinney and Amelia Taylor. Susan was the mother of Mary (Molly) Harrod. Mary (Mollie) married Alexander Mitchell, the grandfather of Barbara Mitchell Moore.

 

Below is the known ancestry of Susan (Kinney) Harrod:

 

 

William Kinney

 

William Kinney first appears in the 1733 Somerset Co MD tax records (see below) and listed as owning land in the Naticoke 100 (tracts included Kennys Chance, Good Neighborhood and Descarte). He married a Mary (most likely Mary Waller, daughter of Thomas and Mary Waller per Anne Waller Ramsby [email address as of 6/2012: amramsby@gmail.com] ). William gave Isaac, his son, 50 acres of the tract Descarte located on the branch of Broad Creek on 17 Jan 1755. His will was written on 12 May 1760 and probated in Somerset Co MD on 1 Jun 1771, Book EB-4/15. He must not have included Mary in his will to the extent she expected/wanted as she is listed as approaching the Probate Court and demanding 1/3 of his estate. It is interesting to note that his son Isaac is not mentioned in his will either.

 

Abstract of Williams will: To son William: tracts Kennys Chance, Good Neighborhood, part of Descarte (desc), dwelling plantation. If no heirs to son Joseph, pt of Descarte, exec. To dau Ann. Witness: James Windsor, John Young, George Bacon. Came widow Mary Kinney, demands 1/3rds.

 

The children of William and Mary included:

1.     William

2.     Joshua (Joseph?)

3.     William

4.     Isaac

5.     Ann

 

Isaac Kenney (Sr)

 

Isaac Kenney (Sr) died in Sussex Co DE (the county just north of the Ocean City, MD/Fenwick Island DE state line) between January and April 1783. The name of his wife is unknown. His will was abstracted in the Calendar of Sussex Co DE Probate Records: Isaac Kenney, Planter. Page 148. Will written Jan 10 1783, probated April 16 1783. Heirs: sons Elijah, Josiah, Isaac and William Kenney, daughters Tabitha Kenney, Betty Greer, Lovey Benston. Executors: son Elijah, Kenney, Samuel Kellam. Archives Volume A82, pages 58-59. Reg. of Wills Liber D, Folios 12-13. Estate settled by Elijah Kenney, surviving executor, on Sept 6, 1796.

 

1.     Elijah

2.     Josiah

3.     Isaac (married Amelia Millie Taylor, daughter of Abraham and Mary Olive (Walker) Taylor)

4.     William

5.     Tabitha

6.     Betty (married a Greer)

7.     Lovey (married a Benston)

 

 

Isaac Kinney (Jr)

 

Isaac (Jr) was born in Somerset Co Maryland in approximately 1765. Isaac first married Amelia Taylor, daughter of Abraham and Mary (Walker) Taylor (See below for more details on the Taylor genealogy). Between 1800 (where they appear in the Somerset Co MD census) and 1810 (where they appear in the Bracken Co KY census), Isaac, Amelia and Amelias two brothers, Bartholomew and Abraham migrated to Bracken Co KY.

 

Amelia was born circa 1764, probably in Somerset Co MD and died between 1840 and 1850. On 2 Apr 1852 at the age 87, Isaac married an Ann Brion (age 66) in Bracken Co KY. Two years earlier in the 1850 census, Ann Brion is listed as the only other member of Isaacs household. Isaac died in Bracken Co KY in 1854 at the age of 89.

 

Isaac had a large family, including numerous daughters. In the 1810 Bracken Co KY census, Isaac and his wife Amelia Taylor list 8 daughters and 1 son. Other than his second wife Anny (nee Brion), daughter Milly (Garrard) and son Isaac, he unfortunately did not mention any of his other children by name in his will.

Will of Abraham Taylor: written 11 Oct 1791, probated 27 Feb 1792 Somerset Co Wills EB-17:197.

 

Excerpted from the biography of Thomas B. Taylor, great-great grandson of William Taylor & Sarah Cooper (Sketches of Maryland Eastern Shoremen, page 140, Chapman Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1898):

 

HON. THOMAS B. TAYLOR, Wicomico Co (MD), in partnership with Jas. E. Bacon, owns Mardela Springs and hotel. As early as 1795 a hotel was built on the ground by Major Russum, since then visited by health seekers. The water aids digestion, valuable in treatment of chronic diseases. Subject born near Mardela Springs Sep 5 1823. His grandfather, Levin Taylor was born in the Barren Creek district, then Somerset Co MD; served in the Revolutionary War with 4 brothers and his father James, who was the son of William, from England and who settled in Somerset Co MD. Thomas, father of the subject, was born on the old homestead in the Barren Creek district; was a sailor in the War of 1812; died of yellow fever in Key West (FL) in 1832. He married Ellen Smith, of Delaware, who died at birth of subject; she left 3 children: Ellen, who married Henry Vickers, of Baltimore; Uriah and Thomas. B. At 19, having completed his education, subject began teaching school; after 3 years clerked in a store; carried on store at Mardela Springs 1850-1890; then sold out and retired; surveyor; owns 5 farms (c. 1200 acres); county commissioner; member of the state legislature; member of the MP Church.

 

Isaac Jrs short will, written 22 Jan 1854 and probated Apr 1857 can be found in Bracken Co KY Will Book H, page 32: 1st I desire that sufficient amount of my perishable part of my estate be immediately sold after my decease to pay all my just debts & funeral expenses and after the said expenses I devise that all my children shall have one dollar a piece having here to fore received their part excepting Milly Garrard and Milly Garrard I bequeath to her 1/2 of the balance of my perishable part of my estate the other 1/2 I give to my wife Anny Kenney. ...mentions son Isaac... Witness by J.B. Smitson and Hudson W. Rice. There was a note that J. B. Smitson was deceased when it came time to prove the will.
