In Reply to: John B. Kinyon m. Helen Rountree, Illinois by Linda Bridges of 33

Hi Linda,

I came across your relatives one day, while I was looking through some cemeteries. I did come across John Benjamin Kinyon, born 17 Mar 1805, in Tennessee, died 25 May 1883 in Washington Co., Illinois, and buried in Kinyon Cemetery. His wife, Helen Roundtree, was born 6 Nov 1810, Warren Co., Kentucky. She died 10 Mar 1853 in Washington Co., Illinois and was buried in Roundtree Cemetery, in Oakdale, Washington, Illinois.

John is the son of Joseph Kinyon, born 1775 in North Carolina. What you may not know is that this is just about as far back as this particular line of Kinyons has been traced to date. Richard Reid Kenyon refers to this line as the T-line. It is unclear just where the first of this Kinyon line came from. Richard Reid Kenyon would love to be in contact with any living male descendants of the line that would be interested in doing any DNA testing. He and others, such as myself would find it interesting to know how this Kinyon line matches up with other known Kenyon lines.

Anyway, I hope that I was able to provide you with some new information about your relatives.
