Thank you, thank you, thank you.You've put me much closer to my ancesters (Zenas' father's U.S. birthplace was the clue)!
Here's what I've been able to put together so far;Benjamin Kinsey (1756-1831) m Dorothy Doan (1790).They had 2 children, Rebecca and Zenas-1.After his marriage to Rachel Doan (abt 1814), Zenas-1 and Rachel moved to Middlesex Co. Ontario.(This information is mostly from Ross Kenzie).
My gg grandfather, Zenas-2 was born in 1817 and married Catherine (possibly Benner).The unique name "Zenas" and the overlapping dates seem to be strong evidence that Zenas-1 and Zenas-2 are directly related.My g grandfather David P. Kinsey (1841-1917) was Zenas-2's son.(I suspect that John B. Kinsey (1838?-1926?) may be another child of Zenas-2).
If I can tie the two Zenas' together, I think I'll have my link to the rest of Ross Kenzie's exceptional work and I'll be able to add my own branch to the Kinsey record.Thank you again for that revealing information.
