Hello. I am writing to tell you how grateful I am that you posted your messages regarding the Cunninghams. I am not related to the Cunninghams, but am trying to fill out various branches of my Kinnison family, in the hopes of getting more answers to all the questions I have regarding this family.

I was struck by all the Quaker data you used re the Cunninghams.

I descend from Charles Kinnison of Pocahontas County, WV & Pike County, Ohio. I am not certain who his father was, but have made a case that he may have been the son of Edward Kinnison & Mathilda, who ended up in what is now Pocahontas County WV, along with Charles. There are trees "out there" who suggest that the Pocahontas Edward Kinnison descended from Edward Kinnison and Mary Green of Chester County, PA, through their son, Edward & Unknown, about whom unfortunately, very few records have been gathered.

My question to you is this: do you have any information about Edward Kinnison's heritage, (i.e the Edward Kinnison who married Mary Green) e.g. was he among the Irish Quakers who ended up in PA?

Can you recommend sources for me to try?

Finally, who was Patrick Cunningham, and how was he related to the Cunningham sisters mentioned in Mary Cunningham's will?

Oops, it was not "finally" as I have one more question--do you have a tree somewhere that I can view? Have you written anything about these people/area that I can view?
