Following is the first paragraph of the bio published by Carl Nichols on the net. I didn't save the URL and now can't find it, but did copy the whole thing in Word, so if anyone wants this bio, e-mail me and I'll send in an attachment.
"During the Eighteenth century, several immigrant families that now go by the name of “Kinard,” or similar variations, settled in the Dutch Fork of South Carolina.In January 1745, a family of Kinards were among a group of Protestant “Palatines” that arrived on Capt. Brown’s ship, the St. Andrew (Council Journal, Meeting of 29 January 1745).Mathias, Margaret, John, and Martin Kinard later claimed to have arrived on this ship in their petitions for bounty land in S.C."
