A friend of mine, Chris Buck, and I are pulling together the names and b/m/d dates of descendants of John Kinnier, whose son Dr. James Harrison was of Tullineerly (Kinneary genealogy) or Tullinearly (tombstone), Ireland, which I think is in County Monaghan.Chris Buck is the President of the Smithville Historical Society, New York.
John Kinnier married Elizabeth Harrison, daughter of James Harrison and Elizabeth Kinnier.James was of Churchill and/or Castleblaney, County Monaghan.James, Elizabeth, and some of their children immigrated to New York state in 1828.Two children stayed in Ireland, one was Elizabeth Harrison Kinnier and husband John.Elizabeth and John eventually came over in [May] 1849 in time to see James Harrison die (1849).In Smithville the name was spelled Kinnier and Kinnear.
Children of Elizabeth Harrison and John Kinnier were: 1.Dr. James Kinnier (1826-1849), single 2.John Kinnier (about 1828-1874) married Emiline Fish. 3.Mary Kinnier Ramsey (about 1832, died before 22 January 1908) of Greene, Chenango County, New York 4.William Kinnier (1832/1833-1892/1900) married Hannah Harrison, both of Smithville. 5.Jane Kinnier (b. about 1834, dieda fter mid-1874) married Alexander Kinnier of Garmany's Grove.Between 1863 and 1869 Jane Kinnier moved back to Ireland. 6.George R.

Kinnier (d. after April 1874) 9.Eliza Kinnier Yea they really seem to have both an Eliza and an Elizabeth.Eliza Kinnier (about 1844-1908) of Binghamton, New York.She married Theodore B. Schenck. 10.Margaret Kinnier (about 1846-1920/1930) married Captain Edgar C. Post.They moved to Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania; that's Scranton PA or Penn.(Trying to get someone to hit on this message.) 11.Amanda Kinnier (about 1851 to after April 1874) married Clark L. Hood.In 1878 Clark L. Hood married Frances A. Hollister, so Amanda may have died 1874-1878. (Compiled by Polly Lynn.)
