In Reply to: HENRY HINCKLEY & CLEMENTINE SMITH HINCKLEY by colleen driscoll of 789

The Hinckley family lived on the point of Wolfe Island directly across the St. Lawrence river from Cape Vincent NY as early as 1820. Samuel Hinckley was granted a charter to operate a ferry there by King George IV in 1829. To this day, the ferry between those two places is owned and operated by descendants of the family. Although I don't have Henry in my database, he would fit date-wise as a grandson of great-grandson of Samuel through his son Coleman Hinckley and Coleman's son Dexter who m. Nancy Pritchard.
