Treasure Chest Thursday - Joseph, Jacob & Walter Watson Kinnick

Treasure Chest Thursday
Joseph, Jacob & Walter Watson Kinnick

 Joseph, Jacob & Walter Watson photo: on back in first handwriting & in ink:  “Uncle Joe Kinnick, Uncle Jake Kinnick, Father Walter Kinnick” and under Walter’s name, in pencil & in second handwriting: “Father of Lon Kinnick, Father of Ira Kinnick”

My comments: Walter Watson Kinnick was my great-great grandfather, of course; with his brothers.

Joseph Kinnick (1839-1917)
Walter Watson Kinnick (1840-1919)
Jacob Kinnick (1846-1923)
[Links have stories from my earlier research]

Thanks again to cousin Ellen DeVilbiss. She has preserved and shared these photos from her grandmother, my aunt, Lillian Kinnick Ford.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. What an awesome picture! I don't know your history, but are you related to Nile Kinnick?

  2. 4th cousin, twice removed... as far as we know at this time.
