Jennifer, I tried to send an email to the address in your profile but didn't receive a response. So here it is. Please reply to kaighin@iname.com

Jennifer,

Hello, and it's nice to hear from you. I've been researching the Kaighin family for some time so I check the Kaighin genealogy forums regularly and I just saw your post. I've actually done quite a bit of research on your branch which you can read about on www.kaighin.com/familyhistory/kaighin.htm. I don't have your father linked into my database, but I'm sure I have his father and his father's family. So if you can tell me your grandfather Kaighin's name, I'll be able to give you your lineage. And I have been in contact with some Kaighins descended from this Toledo bunch, so I can put you in contact with them as well. They live all over the place now.

Regarding your half brother Charles. I believe he may now live in St. Louis. Only one Charles Kaighin shows up in people searches for both the US and Canada. All the posts I can find from him are from 2000 and he doesn't seem to know much about his family, but here's the info I've collected on his posts:

tkaighin@home.com
thaighin@hotmail.com

Charles Thomas Kaighin b. 1965 Miami, Fla
Son of Thomas Preston Kaighin, b. 194? I think in Miami, (not a lot of info on that, but could research it) and Sonja Jean Gundersen b. 1945 - 1998 b. Miami, Fla.

I'm just starting this mess, and am somewhat bereft of living known relatives to get info from so I am assuming a slow and torturous process. Feel free to assist if you can, all assistance welcome and appreciated.







I hope this helps, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Greg Kaighin
