Looking for the parents of William C. Kinne.I found this information about him, but it doesn't list his parents.
WILLIAM C. KINNE, farmer, Sec. 19, P.O. Ellsworth, Wisconsin, was born at Green Mountain, Vt. May 1, 1815.He left his native State in 1841, and came with his parents to Wisconsin and bought a farm and was among the first settlers in Rock County.Here he resided until 1860, when he moved to Pierce County and purchased the farm on which he now lives.
He was one of the organizing members of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Ellsworth, which society built the first church in the village, Mr. Kinne donating four lots for that purpose, himself and wife having been members of the denomination for thirty years.
He was married in New York State in 1841, to Miss Lucina Jacobs, who is a native of that State, and they have now a family of six children.
They lost one son, Warren O., who was a soldier in the war, having enlisted in the 20th Wis. Vol. Infty. Co. A. in July of 1862, and died in the Regimental Hospital at Missouri, on the 9th of November, 1862.
Ellsworth, Wisconsin was laid out and platted as a village in 1862, by William C. Kinne, Norris Kinney and Ira Williams.
