This Blog focuses on Ancestor Stories, both the stories themselves about my family’s ancestors and discussions of where they come from and how to prepare and share them. These stories may be non-fiction or fiction – we will always tell which is which, of course. Also see my KINNICK blog and The HOMEPLACE Series Blog, left sidebar, scroll down.

Tombstone Tuesday - George Washington Kinnick 1784
Tombstone Tuesday - George Washington KINNICK 1784-1865
This simple stone marks the grave of a major contributor to the KINNICK family line in the USA. Born in Davies Co, NC, George married Hannah GRIMES there in 1806. They had ten children who lived to adulthood, each had large families of their own, and moved to Johnson Co, Indiana in about 1850 and their descendants now live from coast to coast - providing most the the KINNICK descendants today.
This family is the primary subject of the 1953 publication:
THE KINNICK FAMILY
A GENEALOGICAL HISTORY OF THE
KINNICK FAMILY OF AMERICA
John Kinnick and Ann Kinnick
of Davie County, North Carolina
