Kingman Family Genealogy Forum
Hi Keith: I am still digging. Just read your query and it sounds like your getting somewhere. I have a Kingman Bible that lists "John Kingman born Feb. 7, 1777, Patty Wallis born Aug. 22, 1784, Married Nov. 22, 1801. Mr. Kingman died Oct. 1862. Mrs. Kingman died Sept. 4, 1835. Children: Horace b; March 15, 1804 d; Feb. 14, 1850 - Laura b; Oct. 17, 1805 - Norman b; Nov. 1, 1807 - Sally b; June 13, 1809 d; Nov. 19, 1840 Amos b;Oct. 16, 1812 - Orin b; Oct. 4, 1815 d; May 4, 1882 - Kenneth b;Mar. 10, 1818 - John W. b; July 10, 1820 - Reuben T. b;May 3, 1823 Orlando H. b; June 22, 1826 d; Sept. 17, 1850." This Bible must have belonged to Reuben and Eleanor. It has their marriage details such as Rev. Wood performed the ceremony, also the witness names; Their children's births, marriages and deaths are also listed. Reuben was born in Smyrna, N.Y. according to the Bible. The children were born in Plattville, Illinois, Wheaton, Illinois and Mazon, Illinois. I hope this will be of help to you. I found a book in Salt Lake regarding "Henry Kingman b; 1755 near Weymouth and that he married Betty Hollis". I was begining to think he never existed. I would appreciate anything you can add.
