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


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 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:
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.

Trying to locate: Thomas Preston Kaighin
Branch of Service: Army
Unit was: 118 AHC
Where served: Viet Nam
When served: 66-68
Message is: Looking for Tom to contact son Thomas Charles Kaighin. Last known address in Savannah, Ga.
Please contact: Tom Kaighin
Mailing address: 192 Cherrywood Dr.
City, State, Zip: Newmarket, Ontario, L3Y 2X8
Or send email to Tom Kaighin using this automatic email form"

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
