I'm sooooo happy to have this surname site! Anyone searching for ancestors with the name (or variation) of Kinsolving, PLEASE email me. I am having a hard time finding the origin of this name as well as anyone searching for this name. It is a HUGE gap in my family files!
Different variations of the name include: Consolues, Consolvo, Gonsalius, Consolver, Consolvant, Consolvent, Consolvin, Consolven, Kinsolver, Kinsolving...
My family line is as follows:

Invented multiple items. Many newpaper and magazine article written on the "Strange Dr. Kinsolving." Home was supposed to be haunted by Civil War soldiers.

Would love to exchange information with anyone that can help me piece together this line.
